I bought this as a gift for my husband and he has not opened it yet. This will be the third type of Dakota watch that I have purchased for him for fishing. He likes them but the batteries never last longer than a year on them. We will try one more time.
I love these watches. I work at a horse farm and wristwatches just don't work for me - something breaks before a day is out. These watches are the perfect solution, and I've been glad of the little flashlight in more than one emergency. These watches come in a variety of colors and I've had various ones. My advice get one with a metallic finish (silver or brass) because the colored anodized coatings are not as durable and tend to wear off, making the watch look tacky. These are class looking too, and people are surprised at how little they cost. One of the reviewers had his watch break when he dropped it. I guess its a matter of bad luck because mine have survived hard usage with flying colors. If you are an active person who doesn't want to have to have to reach for a cell phone to tell the time, you'll probably enjoy these. Note: The batteries are hard to change because the back plate is very tight -- you're probably going to have to take it to a jeweler. I just love my present Dakota watch with an antique brass finish that is very Steampunk. Frankly, the price is so low, that I suggest you give this a try. You may never put anything on your wrist again.
Purchased this Pocket Watch as a Christmas gift for my Boss. He likes to wear pocket watches with his suits and vests, so I purchased this pocket watch as well as a down vest to wear on his casual days. Hope he'll enjoy it, I'm pleased with it.
