CROTON 7-SET LEATHER STRAP WATCHES
I purchased these watches last time they were on as a showstopper. I planned to gift them to friends overseas as another reviewer stated. Although on first glance they looked very nice, once I started to look closely, the quality was simply lacking. The second hand flops on all the watches. The leather strap-Italian leather supposedly-is stiff and clumsy. I contemplated returning the watches but my 15-yr old daughter decided that she wanted to keep them and use them as gifts. I regret keeping them because not only did she not gift them, they are still sitting in the box they came in. The 2-star rating is for the colour and somewhat design of the watches. The quality is far inferior. I have another watch purchase from Croton and the quality does not even come close to that, mind you that was very many years ago. The other thing I didn't like, they did not say CROTON on the face. Save your money and don't purchase these watches. I would definitely not recommend these watches.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Nice set of 7 for a great price
from PARRY SOUND
I purchased this set to keep & gave one as a gift.I love having a wardrobe of watches in so many different colours. I do agree that the straps are very stiff at first, but found after a week of wear they soften. Perhaps the stiffness is due to the thickness of the strap, it's not cheap & flimsy. Also, the hands were loose before the removal of the small plastic piece that keeps it from wasting the battery. Once the watch is set and working, the hands are stable. My watches are all keeping time, no missing crystals & look great. I was lucky to get them for for a great sale price.

Very poor quality band
By kim mom
from St. Catharines, Ontario
The "leather" bands were too stiff and felt extremely cheap. I would have been embarrassed to give even 1 of them as a gift, and that's how the hosts were promoting them, as they were individually wrapped. They looked and felt worse than a dollar store find.
Pretty to look at... but lacks quality
from Montreal (Quebec)
I too bought them as gifts to put in girlfriends Xmas baskets. I'm sorry now that I didn't wear one beforehand. Oh yes, some of the colors are very pretty and the face is quite cute and good for someone who has eye problems... but the quality of the watch itself, isn't that great, especially the straps. Anxious to see how long they last!!!
from Olds, AB
These are fun watches to wear and so worth the show stopper price. Initially I received a set with 2 orange watches so returned for exchange. The straps are a bit stiff to start with but soften with wear.
Not the best quality in the strap
from Thunder Bay, Ontario
although I purchased the set of 7 watches to give mainly as gifts at a small dinner party, I'm rather disappointed with the lack of quality control over the strap. As a few others stated, I must parallel their thinking and agree that the straps are very rigid and difficult to do up. I was hoping the straps would be softer and now I'm almost embarrassed I gave them away as my own hostess gifts to friends. There may have been 7 watches, but the quality of those straps say it all and if it's uncomfortable to wear, one is not going to wear it very often. The colours are great, but only to look at it seems. The price was too high for this lack of quality and I'm very disappointed. I had to change my rating from a 3 to a 2 for that reason.
from Surrey, BC
I have purchased other watches from Croton & been more than pleased with the high quality. What were you (Croton & TSC) thinking this time?? I guess there's leather, soft & comfortable & then there's leather, hard & "cheap". I have never had a watch strap so hard to do up before, & I am a watch collector!Some were going to be used as gifts - good thing I gave them a test try first.Will be thinking more than once before making another purchase from this line.
Attractive , Inexpensive
from Burlington , Ont.
Bought the set as a Showstopper and they arrived nicely boxed . As others have stated the leather is stiff and the watch rolls on your wrist no matter how tight you try to fasten it. A longer strap would have been nice. However they are very attractive and I have got a number of complements on them. They are a fashion accessory that actually keeps good time.
from shelburne ont.
i cannot believe the absolute horrible quaility of these watches .the only nice thing about them was the color.croton should hold their heads in shame to put out such quality.
