Rated 5 out of 5Â by LoneStar LOVE THIS WATCH!
Before I ordered the watch, I read the reviews. When a saw the review from another person from Texas, I chuckled and said to myself, I could have written that review!!! Like that person, I am so tired of all the technology, that is suppose make our lives " better."
I have searched long and hard to find a wind up watch. People would look at me, as if I was crazy. I was asked, you have to wind the watch EVERY DAY?? I said YES I would have to do that....but WHY would you want a watch like THAT??? BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT I WANT!!! So, while thumbing through the VCS catalogue, I found this watch. It is perfect. Yes, I wind it daily just before I put it on in the morning. It does NOT lose time, actually, I think it gains a minute or two during the day, no problem. It is well made, I did replace the band it comes with, I like the stainless steel bracelet type. I could not be more pleased with this watch, and now I do not have to worry about batteries ever again. THANK YOU VCS for having this great watch in your catalogue!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MJC Wind up watch never needs batteries
I feel I was born in the wrong century.
I love this watch due to its simplicity. No batteries ever needed. You have to remember to wind it though.
I have a digital camera as it is hard to find a place to develop film anymore. I prefer hard copies of the photos.
I hate cell phones. I go to the doctor and no one is talking to one another. They all have their faces stuck to their cell phones, playing games or what ever. I only have a flip phone with monthly hours of 3 hours. I use only for emergencies, like I locked my keys in the car.
Don't get me started on EMF's emitting from everywhere. Technology is killing us all. I never see kids in the neighborhood playing outside anymore.
Oh well, kinda drifted from the watch. I know I can check the time on my cell phone, but it is much easier to look at my wrist!
I may just purchase a non emf producing clock for my bedside. I think Vermont Country store has those. I just need to find one that does not blare my head off. This is no way yo wake up! My clock radio just chirps. I like that.
Anyway, I think you will be satisfied with this great watch. I am.
I would say the only negative is the strap that holds the band in place falls off if you get it wet.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by new fan in Fl. Nice watch
Was so fed up with having to change batteries on all of my other many watches and was so happy to find a wind up watch that didn't cost an arm and leg. This watch seems to be just what I was looking for. Cute, well made. Thanks!

I bought two so I'd have both finishes. Big chance on a product I could not see. I was pleased as punch. The band is not too long so it fits my wrist perfectly.
I wind the watch I'm going to wear when I first get up and it goes for about 36+ hours. It's so nice to know I won't be running around town next year looking for someone to insert fresh batteries.
The face is clear and the numbers are simple. The watch compliments just about every outfit I wear.

I like this watch!! just wind and go. No batteries to replace every 2 to 3 months, which will save a lot of money. Thank you.....

Rated 5 out of 5Â by very grateful in houston was delighted to find a hard to find product
unfortunately I was only able to enjoy the watch for a short time because one of my 7 kittens made off with it!
but I will keep looking around the house for likely kitten hiding places because it's an excellent watch. good sturdy, attractive band. keeps time perfectly. and the Vermont country store provides outstanding customer service. I am looking forward to doing my Christmas shopping with them again.

I have three watches that all need batteries. When I first started wearing a watch it was one that I would wind. So simple and easy and certainly less expensive.
Just decided to return to a better way. I can see the time better on this watch too.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Epictitus Looks great, no batteries!
I got tired of paying for new batteries in all my cute watches once a year. Bought the silver-case wind-up watch. Comfy, reliable -- and surprise! -- is on-trend for today's watch faces. Lasts 30 hours on one winding. Keeps great time - have never lost or gained a minute. Loved it so much I bought the gold-case one too. Very professional looking as a business watch (my primary use), but goes with any outfit, dressy or casual. If you offer more wind-up watches I'll buy 'em. Gave my "cute accessory" watches to my nieces.
