Looks good. Sticky on time.

Overall the watch looked great, felt great and was an eye catcher. There was one issue with it - it wouldn't keep time properly. Since it is an automatic watch it requires to be wound up and also the natural movement of one's wrist would keep the watch moving. However as much cranking and movement, the watch never kept time properly. It would stop every 20-45 minutes, especially if my wrist wasn't moving (such as periods of time where i would be typing on a keyboard. I fly a lot for my job and it's not like I'm moving around a lot. By the end of a 50 minute flight the watch would have stopped. What appears to happen is the automatic "weight" that is supposed to fall to the bottom (gravity) and naturally crank the watch wouldn't do its job. It appears that it would stick a lot. This is a common review I noticed and thought it wouldn't happen to me... though it did. I asked a friend who is a know-all on higher end watches and he mentioned that it probably needed to be tuned up by a professional (like applying oil to the gears). Automatic watches should only need to be wound maybe once a month. He said that since the watch was most likely bough in bulk by Overstock it was sitting dormant for a long period of time and causing the oil to dry and gears to stall. I returned the watch and am waiting for a refund. Went back to the Quartz battery watch style instead.
