Owned it for a month. Here's a review after the initial interest has faded:

It's a decent watch. There's absolutely NO way a grown man can wear a digital watch and look classy. But this comes close to it. This is a classic watch, a remnant from the childhood of literally every 90-s kid. Plus, it's not juvenile. While still digital, it looks classy because of the sleek design and compact, minimalistic appearance. Nobody will judge you for wearing it to work on a Friday. But do avoid wearing this to a wedding or an interview. Those occasions need more expensive watches.
1. Classic wristwear from the nineties. An evergreen bestseller.
2. Budget friendly.
3. Small and compact. When I say small, I mean it doesn't look like you have an alarm clock strapped to your wrist. Unless you're a professional bodybuilder with huge forearms and a big wrist, this will not look too tiny and bad on you. That was my worry while buying this.
4. The LED light. Seriously, it's a hell lot better than waking up at night wondering which century it is, trying to see the time from the pathetic radium needles of your watch and then having to get up and switch on the light. Loads better than the brightness of a smartphone that will kill your sleep. Your sleepless eyes will thank you. Trust me.
5. Durability. I've been pretty rough with this. I work at a hospital as a junior doctor and I wash my hands many times a day. I don't take off the watch when I'm in a hurry. I've held this one under the tap, multiple times. Still alive and kicking. Don't have to worry about ruining costly leather.
Doesn't run slow or fast. Keeps perfect time.
Strap is quite sturdy despite the flexibility. It does seem like it will last a while.
1. If your wrist is more than six centimeters thick side to side, avoid this. The strap won't cover it. I have a tiny wrist compared to most people and it leaves only four buckle spaces after I put it on, with me able to slide the watch up and down on my wrist.
2. The LED light isn't that bright. It's basically a small bulb at one corner. It goes dark the moment you take your finger off the switch. Better battery saving, imo. Avoid unnecessary wastage from bumping the watch somewhere. But then again, this watch stays out of the way. You can rarely bump it against something and damage it in your daily life. That's all folks. I'd totally recommend this watch to anyone who needs a decent, yet cheap and durable watch.
