IMO, the loudness here is a bit overstated - you will hear it if it you are in an absolutely quiet room. If there is any background noise at all, you're not going to hear it unless you have it very close to your ear.
The bottom line is these are good, dependable watches that keep time very accurately, and the ones with the 24 hour face are also generally recognized as being relatively stylish in a casual way.
I'd have to agree. If my office is really quiet or I am in a quiet space I hear it and it is loud. However, in the normal business of the day I can ignore it. I also sleep in it with no problem, I don't notice the ticking. Other than the occasional bark from dog and the whir of the AC, the ticking of this watch is just not that big of a deal for me.
It is a great watch. I had the back come off the watch for some reason and I had a devil of a time getting it back on, but no other complaints. I've dropped on a tile floor with no problems.
At first I thought it would be too masculine, but it really isn't I am tall so proportionally it's fine.
