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

As a longtime watch collector with over 30+ watches, jfranks is right on the money. Raymond Weil is a quality watch, my 800 series has a fit and finish I will put right up there with the Breitlings I own. Better than my Tag Heuer for sure...I would say finish is at about the level of Omega. Keep in mind Omega's and Breitling's have a typically more customized movement than a Raymond Weil, hence the great difference in prices. If my wife was not expecting, I would be all over this deal...Keep up the nice watches Woot!!!
A 2006 study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that Americans drink an average of 22 gallons of beer a year. That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles per gallon.

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; woot, wine, home, kids, sellout, shirts, Moofi ... How about throwing a bone to the watches?
