Swiss Army Garrison Elegance Watch - Women'sis rated3.8out of5by5.
Rated4out of5bycarpediemkathfromclassy and durableLike other reviewers, I returned my first watch because it was dead out of the box. Second one works like a charm. I also have trouble with the band being slightly too short, even though my wrists are average size. It works but there's not much room to spare.
But I love this watch for its classic good looks; it will never go out of style. It goes with everything. And it's just as useful for everyday wear as it is for exercising. The band is easy to keep clean.

Rated5out of5byJenskfromgreat watch for every day.I love this watch. It is classic, understated, keeps perfect time (no bells and whistles, just a classy time keeper). Also it can take quite a beating. I work as a machinist and can leave it on while i'm messing around in the mills, even with the coolant running. I can't count how many times I've banged it up against the inside of a machine or against a tool- yet the face is unharmed! No scratches on the crystal after wearing every day since December. Easy to clean, easy to read. Even in the middle of the night I can look at the watch and read the dial (It is not very bright but still visible)
The only con I can think of was that I too needed to have the battery replaced about a month and a half after I had been wearing it. I just searched jewelry stores in the area that are certified to replace a victorinox battery. Spent maybe 8 bucks and havent had to worry since.
I received this as a gift but would buy it for myself in a heartbeat if I ever lost or broke the one I own now.

Rated3out of5bycarpediemkathfromsimple watch with classic looksI like this watch for its durability and classic good looks. But I also had a problem with the battery dying right out of the box. I exchanged it for a second watch and this one works fine. It is hard to find a replacement band and the original band is slightly too short (it fits but not much to spare). My wrist size is about average so the band shouldn't be that short on me. But aside from these issues it's a nice watch that can be worn anywhere. It holds up to abuse and after three years of outdoor adventures the watch face hasn't scratched yet. I suggest purchasing this watch in the store so you can try it on and make sure the battery works before you take it home.

Rated4out of5byhobneckyfrom3rd time's a charm?Exactly what I need in a "multi-purpose" watch - which is why I'm giving it a third try. The original in-store purchase; battery died within a couple weeks and was exchanged for #2 which had to be shipped. Unfortunately the second watch was dead out of the box. I returned THIS one and recieved #3 a few weeks ago. I'm happy to report it's still ticking and working as expected.

Rated3out of5bySarahofthewavesfromOne major flawLove the watch. Flaw however is that the watch requires a wide band. It is impossible to find a watch band wide enough and short enough. Yes, you can find a men's or unisex watch band, but they are too long. The watch is then floppy on the wrist.
Kind of expensive watch not to be able to find a replacement band.
