Handsome design with skeleton face and intricate etching give it contemporary and traditional appeal. Owners rave that it's even more attractive in person. Mechanical mechanism keeps accurate time. Comes with a chain.
Some reports of malfunction after several months, but the upside is the limited lifetime warranty. Can't be engraved.
A basic model with a classic design: open face, gunmetal finish, and smooth back that's ideal for engraving a personalized message. Japanese movement doesn't require winding. Limited lifetime warranty.
The chain and the clip that come with it feel poorly made compared to the watch. Requires a battery, which is very difficult to change because the watch back is hard to open.
Black-tone metal, blue Roman numerals and hands, and skeleton design that allows you to see its inner workings give this mechanical model a truly unique look, while the construction has a sturdy feel.
The downside of the eclectic design is that the watch face is somewhat difficult to read. Some owners reported faulty crowns. Every day winding is required, but it's easy to do.
Stands out for its attractive vintage looks that are reminiscent of old-fashioned pocket watches. Features stainless-steel housing and Roman numerals. Has a chain and kickstand.
Winding the mechanical mechanism daily is recommended, but time in inaccuracies are still common – tends to lose time.
Generates praise for its intricate looks that have been described as "stunning" – gold-embellished finish, skeleton design, vintage wood adornment, and Roman numerals. Comes with a chain.
Typical of mechanical watches, it requires daily winding. The small glass window pops out fairly easily. Some owners gripe about time inaccuracies. Occasional "lemons."
