However, before you decide to buy this beauty, please understand that the color of the watch hands is a function of the lighting conditions, so that would mean that it will not always be blue as shown in the picture.

“Let me tell you, I have only had this watch one day and is already starting to become one of my favorites. It is a classy looking watch which is comfortable to wear (leather band) but I may decide to get a metal band for it eventually. So far, from the little time I’ve owned it, it does keep good time.”

“a wonderful watch that does not need batteries, EXTREMELY affordable from a manufacturer known throughout the world. I am VERY happy with the purchase and laugh when coworkers guess that I cost over $1000.00 – I laugh and say “a little less than that.” I do agree that this looks like a $1000.00 + watch. Good luck to you in your purchasing decision – I hope this review has helped.”

“although I think it is very attractive, I can’t read the date easily”
