As it’s a women’s watch, it isn’t surprising that it’s on the smaller side. Its case stretches 1.45 inches (37 mm) across. It looks exquisite – it comes with a shiny gold body. It looks like there’s an additional metallic effect to it – that’s because the gold wasn’t painted, it was ion-plated.
Along with the gold body, there are crystals on its hour markers. We don’t know if they’re real but considering the timepiece’s price, we’d guess pieces of glass. The crystals catch a lot of light – the 14397 turns into a disco ball when it’s bright out.
It is very water-resistant. You wouldn’t expect this from a watch that looks as good as it. It can handle 330 feet (100 meters) of water. If you’re thinking about diving with it, we have some bad news for you – you can snorkel at most. As its body is gold plated stainless steel, it’s waterproof. It can also handle scratches.
There is a calendar. It’s in the 3 o'clock position, so you won’t be straining your neck reading it. That being said, it only reads the day’s date. At least it’s magnified. Its dial is really small, so if it wasn’t, it would be impossible to read.
Something interesting about it is that it comes with a rotating bezel. As it turns, it ticks. You usually see the feature in diving watches. We think the ticks it makes are quite loud.
Women’s watches usually aren’t on the heavier side – this makes them harder to wear, even though they feel more quality. The timepiece weighs 4.37 ounces (123.6 grams). It doesn’t have a thick strap. This is good as having a lot of stainless steel on your wrist makes you sweat.
A deployant clasp with an extra safety mechanism is present. Deployant clasps are secure, so the presence of extra security means that the 14397 will not fall off your wrist.
You should be careful with its window. It’s made from a mineral that can handle a beating, but it’s not as resistant as other types of glass.
Did we mention that it’s Swiss quartz? Swiss mechanisms have a lot of craftsmanship to them, making them perfect for a lady. Some of the best watches under 100 come with the movement, regardless of gender. Unfortunately, we don’t know the name of the specific quartz movement inside of it.
What makes it special:
It’s a Swiss quartz timepiece.
