Takeaway: Handsome watch, easy to set, fairly accurate though gains a few minutes over time, cheap band.

The watch comes in a simple two piece box (not a display box) and includes a brief instruction sheet on how to set the time and calendar. The watch has a large 1.5” convex glass face and a rose gold body. The band is a foam core brown mixed leather with a faux crocodile print, though the buckle disappointingly is silver and doesn’t match the finish of the watch face.

The numbers on the watch are roman numerals and the face features a calendar with a day counter, month dial, day of the week dial, and internal mechanics window. On the back is a window to the winding mechanism. This watch is automatic, meaning is does not have a battery but also does not need to be wound (normally) as simply wearing the watch should provide enough kinetic energy to spin the weight inside the watch and wind it up. Your watch may not be running when you first receive it and if this is the case, you need to shake it forward and backward 20-30 times to move the weight inside and wind it up. To keep the watch wound and running continuously, you need to wear the watch for at least 10 hours a day and for the first week, you should shake the watch to wind it when you take it off for the night. Over time you'll get a feel for whether or not you need to shake the watch to wind it given your personal usage and wear habits.

Setting the time is straightforward by simply pulling the crown out and winding it towards you to advance the time. Be sure to advance past 12 o’clock and watch for the day number to change so you know whether or not you’ve passed midnight or 12 noon. The day of the week indicator will advance between 1-2 AM. Pressing the upper pusher on the right hand side will manually increase the day number, but note that it goes up to 39 and resets to 0. This counter helps you track the passage of up to 40 days of time or can be used it for the calendar date, though you’ll have to manually reset it to 1 at the beginning of each month. The lower presser on the right advances the month indicator. I’m not sure why the presser for the day of the week is recessed, but it’s on the left hand side by the 8 o’clock position and requires a pen to press the button. The inner workings of the watch are fascinating to watch, though you only get a little glimpse through the window in the front. Just be sure not to drop the watch as a hard landing can knock loose the internal components and basically stop the watch in its tracks. That happened with my last automatic watch when I knocked it off the dresser. The watch is also only water resistant, not waterproof and should not be submerged or worn in the shower.

Overall, this watch is easy to set and if you keep it wound it should keep time accurately. I’ve worn it for 4 weeks now and I haven’t let the watch stop. In that time it has gained 2 minutes, though it's pretty easy to reset to the correct time. I also noticed that the tip of the band is already starting to lose its faux crocodile print so the band will likely need to be replaced sooner rather than later. Other than that, the watch is a handsome and accurate timepiece that looks great with both formal and casual attire.
