My most wanted wasn't meant to be.
I have been lusting over this watch for at least 6 months. I finally splurged this memorial day and bought it. I love the look and the style but the band is just dreadful. It is already separating and I wore it for four hours the other day. It is very thin for such a heavy item. I don't know if I just got a bad one but I know they are sold out of most colors and I don't like the others so I guess it will be returned. It is a shame because I really love this piece. It is very unique and it does work. I had no problem telling the time with it. I would love to give it 5 stars but for the price I would expect better quality.
Hi michelerh, We're sorry to hear about your Compass Sundial Cuff. Someone from our team will be in touch. - Free People
one of a kind!
Holy Whoa! I love this watch! At first i was a little concerned because the leather was a bit stiff but after wearing it for only a couple of days it formed to my wrist and now fits like a glove! The extra touches are especially charming. Each individual watch has its own number tag. I love that! But my favorite part is that they are handmade on MAUI by a small business. I will be a customer for years to come!
I Appreciate this watch.
I recently purchased this watch in black. It goes with every outfit I own! I myself am an artist and I truly appreciate the heart and soul that goes into each watch. The attention to the detail is amazing. I have previously seen these watches in a local boutique in my hometown and they are all stunning. I may be purchasing a green one for fall.
I came across this product last year and loved the idea and uniqueness so much I wouldn't stop talking about wanting one, until my boyfriend finally bought one for me for my birthday. I was so excited and in love with my compass, I wore it almost every day. I got tons of compliments and people asking where they could get one of their own. The idea behind this watch is genius and I found that the sundial is actually pretty accurate too! The leather was a little stiff at first, but it wore in nicely. The biggest problem I had was I only had 1 color! So I just recently spoiled myself and bought myself another one to better match other some different outfits. I was happily surprised to find that the strap this round seemed to have lost its stiffness. They must have upgraded their leather. It's awesome. Thank you so much, Pandeia and free people, for my favorite accessories!
I love it! But it has some issues.
I literally drooled over this watch for months, and my boyfriend splurged and surprised me with it for my birthday. (Yay!) That was a little over 4 months ago, and I have been wearing it almost every day since. I get compliments on it ALL THE TIME. I am a waitress, and every week I have customers asking where I got it. That being said, the band is made of very thin, supple leather. You can get it wet, but the band will stretch and the color will bleed onto your skin. I actually had the band replaced at a watch shop. That is actually a little upsetting, because now I can't wear the tiny charm on the band that carries the number of your watch stamped on it (which I loved). My other biggest issue, is that the actual sundial triangle on the watch is loose. It came that way, and it constantly flaps around. It's extremely annoying, and ridiculous for a $300 watch. Not to mention it would be impossible to use the sundial function on it because it won't stand up straight without physically holding it there. I still wear my Pandeia pretty much everyday, and I think the style is INCREDIBLY UNIQUE and beautiful. That being said, $300 is really a lot of money to me.. This piece should either be cheaper or made correctly.

For the price of the watch, it should have come with a magnifying glass or microscope to be able to read the directions on the backside. Other than that, my daughter wanted this watch more than anything and considered it a MUST HAVE item, in addition to food and water. I have to admit - this is a cool item to look at....even if you never learn how to tell time, because you couldn't read the directions on the back !!
pricey but cool
as previous reviewers have mentioned, the leather is a lot thinner than expected, but it's still sturdy. this just looks so much cooler than a regular watch. i haven't really tested out the sundial functionality, but i bought it to wear as is and i'm quite happy with it. the only con is the price tag. i don't think it's worth it, but i do really appreciate the design, and it does go with basically everything.
It took me a while, but now I love it
Wasn't crazy about it at first because the strap literally feels like construction paper - thin and rough - and it takes forever to loop through the metal band. Also, it's definitely not worth $300. But as i stare at it more n' more, I'm falling in love with its anachronistic antiqued uniqueness, worthy of a Robinson Crusoe or Hemingway adventure!

Let me tell you a little secret ladies. If you are lucky enough to buy this watch be prepared to have men flock to you like butterflies! This beautifully hand crafted piece should not only be considered an essential, It is vital to any single gal out there. You could be wearing a potato sack with curlers and cold cream on your face, and I guarantee the only thing he will notice is your watch! I treated the leather band and it is aging beautifully. Thank You Pandeia, perfection!
