Overview

Many watches offer luminescent hands, but our handsome watch goes a step further with a bright backlight that illuminates the entire face for easy readability in low-light situations like museums and restaurants. The face features a clean, subtly retro look with eye-catching green numerals and date function. Waterproof to 165 feet.

Details

Lightweight aluminum case; leather strap. Waterproof to 165 feet. 1 1/4" diameter x 9 3/4"L. Adjusts from 7 1/4" to 8 3/4".

I got this watch to wear rowing. I wanted a water resistant watch with a large face and a second hand that I wouldn't worry about getting wet. I have a small wrist so I called Customer Service for strap length details. 10" I was told. Not true. The total watch length is 9.75". On the next to smallest hole it fits my 6" wrist perfectly. And it looks fabulous! I wear constantly. It's large face and hands make it easy to read. I love the date feature though I wish it were larger, and of course the face color would be much better simply white. But even with those minor issues this is my favorite watch. Very simple, wonderfully functional and smartly stylish.

Disappointed that I've had it a couple of weeks and it runs a few minutes slow, needing to be reset every couple of days.
Otherwise it is what I wanted - looks, band, backlight, etc.

Can it be returned for another one that will keep better time?

Comments about Retro Backlight Watch:

It works great for checking the time in the Dark. The downfall is it may not last more than 5 to 10 years or so. My first one the light stopped working after 7 years the warranty only lasts for 5 years. I liked the watch enough to purchase a new and purchased 2 more when they went on sale.

      Comments about Retro Backlight Watch:

      This is my second purchase of this watch. The first one was damaged when I bumped against a railing that broke my backlight switch. It was after wearing to two years. Because I can not find any watch in the world that has a decent backlight for reading in time in the dark I decided to purchase a second one. I hope this one lasts longer than the last.

      Comments about Retro Backlight Watch:

      Wish my poorly sighted husband had this years ago. He likes being told he looks like a 1930's Boy Scout! In everything but total dark he doesn't even have to press the backlight because the hands are so bright.
