Dynamitetime.com has free shipping on all orders, no minimum. So it's $24.99 flat.

This looks to be pretty decent. No, it's not a $400 watch, but sears and a few other places still have it listed in the 200s.

Puts me in mind of those black and white Kit-Cat clocks with the swinging tails. I like unique watches and this has a nice aesthetic. In for one.

If the inside of that band looks like that new, imagine how nasty it's going to look after use...

I bought one of these in a different color a couple months ago and it stopped working within a week. Not sure if it's the battery yet, but it's not a good sign. It definitely doesn't feel like an expensive watch. $25 is priced right.

It's also REALLY hard to actually tell time on this. Look at the main image on the dynamite page, you'd think it was ~5:45 at a quick glance, but it's actually ~4:45. The hour "hand" rotates around and appears before it's really that hour. You'd get used to it eventually, but kind of annoying.

Also, the band is small. I've got medium sized wrists and it's on the last hole on the band.

So yeah, not much good to say about it.

I got one of these a a little over 6 months ago. A few comments:
1)Mine still works fine. I dont wear it as much anymore because the leather band started to smell (I do not know if this is common for leather band watches, I usually have metal).
2)need4mospd is right about it being difficult to tell the time. The only hand on the watch is the 'seconds' hand so you have to look at the numbers. I set my watch so the very bottom of the window is the current time (so it would be 4:54 in the picture). I cant tell you how many times I've misread it because I saw the 5 and thought it was that time and an hour earlier. Buy it for the looks, not for the ability to tell time.
3) Those things aside, I like mine (although mine has a bit more color in it with blue accents and I think was cheaper)

I bought this about a year ago. Still works great. Mine's the same as seen in the pic - all black. The inside of the watchband isn't quite that wrinkled, even after a year of use. Mine doesn't smell, but I don't wear it daily, maybe once or twice a week. I supposed it depends on how sweaty you get. Anytime leather and sweat mix - YUCK. I agree with the two above who say it is a bit hard to read at times, until you get used to it, that is. Still, I think it's a pretty nice looking watch.

Woo, cheap chinese junk watches!
Not worth $25, even.
Stick with a real watchmaker.
