What's your style? How do these compare to other brands?

I'm just hanging out, really.

Liking the orange Cruise. The extra straps & case covers make it a good deal compared to others. Citizen Miyota FS20 movement is solid performer.

Pretty sure the 110008L Monochrome has a mineral crystal and not AR sapphire.

Edit: Maybe not...the 110008 definitely is mineral. Maybe AR sapphire is a feature of the L version.

Nope, unfortunately. Check out this portion of the FAQ. The no-return policy kills the deals on shoes/coats/etc. for me; I don't want to risk buying something that I'll be stuck with if it doesn't fit right.

Personally I love my Swatch Irony in orange/blue. Though it's not a diver's watch. But if you are looking for style, I think it looks better and costs $100 less.

I also don't care for rubber or silicone bands because they make my wrist sweat and get itchy. I guess there are not many options beyond stainless and rubber for diving watches, but for $200+ I'd want stainless.

Overpriced, should be about $30.00. Has a quartz movement and a mineral crystal. Come on - get a Timex. For less than $100.00 you can have a Seiko automatic. Don't fall for the hype-check out the orange monster.

Took a look at their website - it took a while, since it is really badly done. Lots of pretension and little easy to access information.

They say that the 110008L is sapphire.

Apparently woot is shipping the other watch side sale items via USPS. Lets hope that all these expensive watches are going to make it in one piece, or even at all!

that was fun while it lasted!

i dont know how anyone could spend >50 bucks on a piece of jewelry/accessory that they didn't first pick up, touch, feel, and look at with their own eyes...

Why didn't someone comment on your agreement like they did mine? Hmmm... discrimination? I dunno.

I don't understand why people assume because it's overpriced, it must somehow be a "brand name" worthy of a higher price than Timex etc. This brand seems to be made up just to make $60 watches seem as if they should cost a lot more.

Hey, I´m new to woot, I´d really like to purchse this watch as gift. Is there anyway to find another unit?

Thanks.

I bought one of these for my wife in rose gold and diamonds. Seemed like a deal for $700. Didn't turn out that way when it stopped ticking exactly fourteen months after we got it - and the warranty is 12 months on these 'fine timepieces.' It will now cost me $100 just to get the company to tell me how much it will cost to fix. A local watchmaker quoted $300 to get it back up and running. Save your money, or invest it in a Rolex or Tag or something known to last.

I bought the 110008L as a gift for a male friend and when I received the shipment was shocked to see the label on the TechnoMarine box listing this watch as women's watch! Here is the link to it - http://shop.technomarine.com/#/products/sheet?id=235.

The Woot listing was incorrect as it listed this watch as men's watch and now I need to deal with the return.

Most Techno watches are unisex! I advice you to keep it and enjoy! I bought it as a gift for a male, it's a great Watch, and what a deal!
