This watch exceeded my expectation. It is a good size for a small wrist. The blue color is attractive and not overdone. I like the day at the the twelve position, and it keeps perfect time, as you would expect from a quartz. I think the price is reasonable for a quality watch.
I am a considerable fan of Akribos XXIV to begin with, so my liking this watch is no surprise (or it wasn't to me, anyway). Not only do I prefer a mechanical watch to any other, if it happens to be a skeleton so much the better. Granted, most mechanical watches today are skeleton watches, but nonetheless .....
Akribos XXIV is well known for fit and finish, and this one is no slouch. Beautifully crafted and stunning to the eye. To very importantly compliment that, though, is a very nice Swiss movement that keeps excellent time, in 24 hours (or so) stints, of course. At Overstock.com's price it's either a masterful way to get into your first mechanical watch or simply a great addition to your collection of eye-catching timepieces.
Hesitate not to buy this watch at this bargain price, and I'm certain that you will, like me, find yourself patting yourself on the back for getting it.
I love the watch itself and I am very much a watch person that I ordered this watch within the first hour that my last won broke. The only problem was that I felt the watch took way to long to even figure out how to set the time so I could actually use the watch. The instruction manual just told you in a billion different languages to check the website and I didn't even find this watch on the website. I had to google just to figure out how to set my watch.
This watch was bigger than I expected but that is okay. Nicely styled and fits well on the wrist. It is a fine timepiece at a good price.. I would have given it 5 stars but the hands are very difficult to read, i mean you really have to work at it to see what time it is.. All in all I am satisfied with the watch and will wear it often..........
I bought this watch as a decent watch to wear at work. I have actually received unsolicited compliments from folks who thought it looks very handsome. Easy to see at a glance, perfect timekeeping and an awesome price! I love it.
Bought this as a gift for my 18 year old son. I honestly wanted to keep it for myself when I saw it. I collect watches and this would have been a nice addition. However, I wrapped it for his Christmas gift. Even my 24 yr old daughter liked it; it definitely can be worn as a unisex piece.
This watch has over exceeded my expectations, it is a very big watch and very thick also, the viewing of it is awesome to say the least, it keeps the correct time, the size and weight of it does not bother me at all, actually I do not even notice I have such a big watch on, if it receives enough light during the day, it well illuminate during the night, when the illumination goes away I just charge it with a flash light for a few seconds and that is it, then I can see it at night. I am very happy with it.
