This watch was already broken when I received it, but didn't notice until part way through the day when I was wearing it. When I removed the red "stopper" that kept the battery from wearing out (because it was the first time I was wearing it) the second hand started ticking right away. The hour hand seemed to be functioning properly, however the second hand stoped ticking at random and won't begin ticking again until I either tapped the watch or pushed on the nob that you use to adjust time. The minute hand on the watch does not work at all. It is completely loose in the watch and moves freely every time I move my wrist or arm. This watch is defective, which is a shame because I really liked the style. Don't waste your money!
