Thread: Amazon watch specifications

  1. #1

    Amazon watch specifications

    I've been looking at (too many) watches on Amazon lately and have found myself frustrated by the obvious inaccuracies on a lot of the watch details. These range from watches where you can't quite figure out if the width is with or without crown (common) to the probably wrong (16mm lug width on a 42mm watch) to the most definitely wrong (39mm lug width on a 42mm watch) to the just plain surreal...

    Well, that wasn't quite the response I was hoping for to this well thought out and composed thread, but yes, I have, they're awesome!

    To be fair mecaquartz is an actual movement type, as it auto quartz and kinetic. And spring drive! But they're probably wrongly-labelled too.

    Ignore the idiots (Amazon) and go there just for the price (if it's a deal)

    I've used it to my advantage in the past when it was clear the ad was wrong , you can get them to pick the item up, badly described..... and they still don't fix the ad !

    Ahhhhh, Amazon...... Gone are the days of:
    "A bookstore too big for the physical World" (or words to that effect)
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    Helooooo, quartz-lover over here But they advertise some mechanics as quartz and vice versa, i find that rather disturbing
