I bought this Watch some time ago, and since I got it, it has sat in my Watch box.
Last friday I took it out of the box, removed all of the plastic from the bracelet, and resized it. The pins in the bracelet are actually not normal split pins, but screws! However, a couple of the pins were rather difficult to remove. I think it would be better if I invested in some better Watchmakers screw drivers, but that's another story. Overall the bracelet is fairly decent quality, all solid links, and solid end links too! The clasp is also made of thick stainless steel with clip open diver's extention.
You may notice that the design of the Watch has been borrowed from a very expensive Watch brand, but the Watch is Alpha branded, so no attempt at deception. So the Watch can not be considered counterfeit. The movement is automatic, hand winding and hackable, but instead of being a chronograph like the original, the sub dials indicate the month, the day of the week along with a 24 hour dial. The rotating bezel is smooth with no rattle. Watch is also very solidly built.
I have to admit that the ovearall appearance of the Watch is very nice cosidering the cost of around £30. The timekeeping is also very good, gaining around 5 seconds per day.
I know that the quality of Alpha Watches can said to be variable, but this example at least appears to be very good. I wish that I had taken the Watch out of my watch box earlier, as I am really enjoying wearing it.
So to me this is a lot of Watch for a really low cost, how long it will last is anyone's guess?
