How did something this fantastically ugly get made out of anything but plastic and sold for $5?
117 woots and counting, since 2007. Don't ban me, bro!

And the fancy battery cover in the back where you can see if the battery leaked is interesting, but I don't see a slot to fit a coin so I can change the battery myself. Does that mean I have to bring it to the bodega to change the battery? That's a pack of bambu I could have gotten instead.
The 2 "knobs" which are properly called crowns, are to adjust the GMT 24 hour time on the top, and the "local" 12 hour time on the bottom. The crown on the bottom adjusts both the date and time having two positions as you pull it out.
There is no battery, it is an automatic timepiece. It self winds as movement of the arm loads a little "pendulum" that in turn winds the watch.
Please, head down to your local bodega and get yourself a $10 digital watch. A timiece like this for someone like you is a horrible, horrible waste.
A woot minion since 2006 ...
