    Kenneth Cole automatic watch any good?

    Hi everyone. I'm not a serious watch guy, but I do like watches. I have an SKX and am wanting another watch to wear. How do you guys feel about this watch: Kennith Cole KC1852 You can find them online for 65 or 70 bucks. It seems like a solid watch for that price point and I really like the look of it. What do you guys think of Kenneth Cole automatic watches? Is the movement a piece of crap or is it pretty durable?

    No offense, but I think you know the answer already. Your money would be better spent on a Swatch, Seiko, Casio, Citizen, or Timex.

    I have a manager who wears this exact model. He likes it, it keeps great time, and he's yet to have a problem with it.

    Solid as a cheap chinese movement can be and will probably serve you for a couple of years, more or less.

    Look, I will go the other way and say that at this price point, if you like the way it looks and wears on you, buy it.

    It's better to purchase a watch that you would rather enjoy putting on your wrist every morning, instead of wearing a watch that is WIS approved but which you grow to hate.

    Hmmm.... I'd try to get pictures of the back of the watch and post it over in the Chinese forum. In some cases, they use Sea Gull movements. And yeah, they can be hit and miss. But they are serviceable - they can be regulated and you can get parts. So if you get a good Sea Gull, you should be good to go. The thing that stinks is if you get a bad movement in a less than $100 watch, paying somebody to fix it really isn't worth it. If you can get a new movement for $20 and do the work yourself, it might be worthwhile.

    I would probably consider looking at a Ciga Design. They use Sea Gull movements and seem a little less fashion-brand than KCNY.

    Don't get why so many who post on here all complain the designer brands are rubbish. If its a watch you like by a brand you like then its ok to buy in my opinion. The good designer brand get the watches made to a good standard and use reasonable moments a lot can be picked up in sales at very low cost. This is after all the theme forum for this type of watch!

    I won't spend my cash on this dial because it won't be durable.
