Whilst I can accept the cost of this product is very low, it still does not make up for the poor quality of the product. I bought it purely to have a cheap watch for daily use that I wouldn't be too bothered about. Unfortunately some design features of this watch make it almost unwearable. To start with the design of the strap (a sort of solid rubber around the face) mean the strap does not hug the wrist at all. I do not have particularly slim wrists and even so it pokes out and looks odd. Secondly, the buckle is deeper than the strap so essentially you get two metal points digging in to the underside of your wrist - which is uncomfortable from the outset. The quality of the product is terrible - I wasn't expecting wonders from my 6 pounds but the face 'metal' coating was already peeling when it arrived and it looks very cheap. It does almost look like a brushed metal finish on the photo - this is not the case. I wouldn't normally bother with a review for such an inexpensive item but I felt I had to in this case - please just don't waste your time with this (no pun intended).
This watch has been no bother. A good quality watch, especially for the price and I've had absolutely NO problem thus far and I feel just as cool now as when I did back in the 70's, lol! A watch to show off to one and all! Go on, transport yourself back in time with this cool watch, you know you want to :o)
Gave this item to my boyfriend as a cheap watch for work as he fixes bikes and needs something that wont rub etc. Sadly after his second day of working the strap at the top where it is pinned in snapped, wasn't tugged or anything.
I know its a cheap watch but I expected and wanted it to last him at least until Christmas!
For the price it looks well worth a fiver, let's be honest for the price of a coffee it's not a bad watch, very retro, it's well cool looking at the time in the Cinema as the red LED, looks great, but it's a smart looking watch, might not last long but can live with that for a bit of retro chic......gave it 5 stars as thought the other reviews not in the spirit of a 3.50 watch....just what they where expecting for the price
