Nice looking watch,which is why I ordered it as a gift for myself, so I give it 2 start for the looks. If you're going for the larger sized watch look, this one will catch the eye and the classic color scheme makes it easy to wear with various wardrobes.
The face and functionality of this watch was just so poorly thought out for the following reason:
- The buttons on the right are simply for the chronograph/stopwatch, which ticks along in 1 second increments only.
- The leftmost face is the minute hand for the stopwatch function mentioned above. About the size of a watch battery, the face breaks down your stop watch time in 5 minute increments. Additionally, it's easily hidden behind either the hour hand or the minute hand depending on what time it is. Fairly impractical.
- The face in the bottom center is the second hand for the actual time. Would have been much better to have used the large red second hand incorporated with the Chronograph for this function.
- The 3rd face on this watch is even more WTF?! It's essentially an hour hand for what time of day it is. It's broken down into 2 hour segments. Seriously Nautica, if I am looking at your watch for the time, I am not looking at the thing about the size of a pea and trying to guess which hour it is, I'm going to looking at the big arms to tell me what time it is.
As noted above, it's a good looking watch. If you want something with a good price that looks flashy, consider it. If you want something with a good price, flashy, and well thought out, keep searching.
I bought this watch as a gift to my brother. At first everything seemed ok. Everything up until my brother went to check what I was cooking and opened the pot. The watch is not well sealed and got steam under the glass. No my brother did no let his wrist inside the pot, he just opened and closed the lid. I live in a very hot place, and it has been over a 100 degrees. My brother watch has been looking like it has never left the kitchen. The watch is beautiful, all the features work fine, good priceand delivered ahead of time but it is not well seald and if you plan getting it wet, or live in a hot country I would not recommend the purchase.
I tried wearing the watch and it was so large (or my wrist was so small),that it pressed into the back of my hand and was painful. I tried it both on my right wrist (I am left handed) and my left wrist and in both cases I had the problem. I had to return the watch. I suggest you try it on in a "Bricks and Mortar" store before buying it.
