For less than $20 you can purchase the XOXO XO5302A Watch, an absolutely stunning looking Women's fashion accessory and timepiece.
First you need to know that this watch isn't tacky, you're probably thinking that the crystals might over do it but the watch is perfect and doesn't look enormous on a woman's wrist.
From what I have learnt most Women will need to get a few links taken out and adjusted as XOXO have provided a very sufficient band length, you can do this yourself or pay somebody, just remember to shop around as you're dealing with a watch that isn't expensive and you will want to get it adjusted for the lowest price possible.
It's actually a really nice looking watch, so far it's had 3 months of use, almost every day, no crystals have fallen out, it is mechanically sound and does not scratch easily.
I purchased this as a gift for my sister and she was thrilled, it came in a really neat box as well!
Perfect as a gift.
For this price I honestly was not expecting much at all, I was pleasantly surprised!
UPDATE AFTER 1 YEAR OF USE:
My sister has been wearing this watch for over 12 months now, not everyday but at least a few times a week. It has not developed any defects in regards to it's timekeeping and is still very mechanically sound. Some minor visible scratches have begun to appear on the crystals and glass and on the outside of the case, also small visible scratches on the band however most of these occurred when her watch brushed against a double brick wall with quite some force.
From my experience the small cosmetic blemishes are bound to happen when you have a very cheap watch that is being worn quite often. The glass is not Sapphire Scratch Resistant found on $5000 Tag Heuer Models and I am quite surprised by the condition of the glass which is still very good.
In regards to the crystals surrounding the watch face I examined them closely and you can still see that this watch retains a sparkle that has not diminished or tarnished in any noticeable way to the human eye. Over a period of a year the watch has also been slightly exposed to a small amount of water, it's been used while sailing at one point and still is functioning perfectly, although I wouldn't recommend that this happen often, if at all.
Overall this model has been super, she still does not know that this watch only cost me $19, her friends have often complimented her on it and she still stores it in the original XOXO Watch Box which is in great condition.
I have to say that I'm a very satisfied customer, I would not hesitate to purchase another watch from XOXO as a gift in this price range!
