the reason you wear a watch is when you're in business meetings it looks pretty ridiculous to dig through your pants and pull out your phone just to check the time.

I own an Orient Aviator and couldn't agree more. The watch's automatic movement is spot on and is a great value for the money.

But since it's ceramic, you can dry it in the microwave.

That's a cute answer, but after the first (and last) woot shirt I bought which was too small, too thin, and too cheaply made, it may not apply. Though, except for the shirt and dumb razors, everything I got from woot works like a charm.

Why would I buy this watch and not that watch over there? ---------->

[OK, when I posted this, there was an ad for a Xetum watch over there]

These are truly $40 watches being marketed as "upscale" to justify their artificially inflated cost. I can't imagine why anyone would buy these, but I guess there's a lot of suckers out there.

I think the woot! buyers need to pay more attention to quality. As you can see, I'm not the only one who has had bad luck with these.

As for the shirts, I really preferred the American Apparel brand, but these South American shirts are okay. I don't buy as many at the new price though.

Also, I see that I'm not the only one who is dismayed to lose woot!'s perennial lagniappe for us Texans. TAXSUCKS! Please bring it back, or I'm going to lose interest in woot!.com. :-/ Surely y'all can see how a little love goes a long way. I am "better than everyone else" for a reason! ;-)

Same here! The American Apparel shirts had size issues but were far better quality than the new ones. I will not be getting any more of the shirts.

I think you must be tran-sensitive. That was a great writeup, not offensive in the least, and left things plenty open for "other" gender readings. I think you should applaud woot! writers for this one! :-)

I have had a Swiss Legend ceramic watch for 5 years, it keeps perfect time. Because its ceramic, the "black will not rub off", this is a characteristic of ceramic. Now if you had a black ion plated stainless steel band, yes, the black would wear off in time.

I love the watch, but I did drop it about a year ago and when I sent it to Swiss Legend (located in Florida), they repaired it and replaced the battery under warranty!! You can't get better service than that.

I do have a chronograph model, but do not use it for that function. I find the chronograph function difficult to use, but wear this as an everyday watch.

I do not consider myself a collector, but I do own several watches and three of them are Swiss Legend. All three are functioning perfectly and can recommend based on my personal experience. These are large watches and the pins can be changed with a special kit, or you can have the band adjusted at most jewelers for about $10.

I have gotten literally hundreds of compliments on my Swiss Legend watch (the same as the women's version shown here, only larger and a chronograph). For this price it's the best deal I have ever seen.

Scuba divers use computers, not watches. Don't even think about it unless you are thinking about resort diving.

Wondering when it will get shipped so I can comment on the quality for the buck or the POS I bought for the bucks.

It sure looks nice in the ad and the price is a heck of a lot lower then my now broken Tag.

I'll take my chances, just ship it....OK.

Most often it ships out within a couple of days of the sale (up to 5 days maximum)

I would give it another day or so and if you haven't seen any shipping updates on your order then feel free to email into Woot Member Services at support@woot.com and they'll be able to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

I'm allergic to Metal and cannot wear many watches because of this.

Any advice would be appreciated!



I realize it's a bit late for this now, but I just received the watch I ordered and the rear of the watch itself is stainless steel, as is the clasp.
