My review will have 3 parts. >> > PART 1: THE WATCH gets my 5-STAR Rating. The watch is beautiful and very wearable. The combination of a polished black watch and bracelet with gold hands and dials is sharp and gorgeous. It is further enhanced by outer parts of the bracelet being matte. Simplicity is the hardest thing to achieve in art, and Armani has succeed in this new model. I own a gorgeous "Coalition Force" watch by Invicta, but it is hard to wear often as it is very heavy. This Armani watch is large yet very light! Consequently, I have just received it, and am already wearing it with pleasure. Men with a thick wrist should not buy it, for the bracelet is not very long. It is perfect for slim or medium wrist. >>> ///// PART 2: THE DISTRIBUTOR/MARKETPLACE SELLER "AreaTrend" gets only my 1-STAR Rating )out of 5 stars). (...). Its description is extremely misleading. Judge for yourself. Area Trend writes "Dimensions 4.25 In. X 3.25 In. X 3.6 In." WHAT??? It is a WATCH, NOT A BOX!!! In fact, the diameter is 46 mm! The picture shows a brown matte watch, whereas it is shiny back!!! I wrote to AreaTrend and asked them to send me their "1 YEAR DISTRIBUTOR WARRANTY" in writing. They signed for the receipt of my e-mail, and never replied, and never sent the warranty listed with the watch!!! ///// PART 3: OVERSTOCK gets my rating of 2-STARS (out of 5 stars). Its web site malfunctioned for a few days by not applying Overstock coupons in the final step of "Check out Now." So, the Lady on the phone CANCELED my order. She hoped but failed to process a new order. She and her supervisor ***, and Overstock Social Media ***. ALL (!) blamed the computer for being unable to change "canceled" to "purchased"! Computers must have been created serve as scapegoats of Overstock! Overstock did return taken from my account O'Club dollars, and thus earned the second star. ///// IN CLOSING: a beautiful watch, large yet light, and very dressy. Buy it, but beware of imperfect sellers! I hope my review will help those who will come in my stead. Happy Holidays, everyone!
The RT men's 45mm automatic diver is a nice looking, sturdy dive watch (rated to 300m). But fairly heavy - weighing in at 235 grams (to date the heaviest watch I own) and very thick, boasting a higher-than-average profile extending off the wrist. The illumination is very poor and the bezel is much too loose to be used as a serious diver, imo. Illumination of both hands (hour and minutes) and at 12 marker and all 5 minute markers are extremely weak to the point that it does not retain enough light-energy for the lowest of illumination; and what energy it does retain doesn't last longer than maybe 10 seconds. Overall, if you have large wrists, are looking for a daily wearer that's built like a tank and you don't need night illumination or will need to dive with it (loose bezel), this isn't a bad buy. Note that the bracelet/band width is 24MM (not 20MM as stated under the product's description).
Beautiful watch but mine arrived with the One O'clock- 5 minute marker fallen off and laying under the crystal. Have to return, will probably order another. UPDATE: Replacement watch arrived today at no cost. Kudos to Overstock and the dealer, will review watch in a few days. Raising rating to four stars, sorry but deducting one star for the hassle. UPDATE: Noticed that the replacement watch had stopped running, so I reset it and wore it for about two hours, it stopped on its own three times, started again after resetting. I suspect that the battery is weak or improperly installed, but should not be my problem. Returning this one also, lowing my rating, and really can not recommend this watch to others. PRODUCT REVIEW: Other than the fact that I received two bad apples, this watch is everything it appears to be, a basic timepiece that looks great on your wrist. Fit comfortably on my 7.5" wrist with about 1.5 inch of overage. Sunburst effect is nice, classy, and attention getting, although it can obscure the watch when checking time. Packaging is excellent and warranty registration included.
