This watch has so many things going on at the same time that, in the hands of a less worthy brand, it could easily fall prey to trying to do too many things at once. However, in the hands of the expert timepiece designers at Guess, this watch, which could have otherwise been easily dismissed as yet another ‘bling’ accessory not only looks good but delivers solid value.
GUESS Casual Luxury Watch
Now, you might be asking yourself, what exactly is a casual luxury watch? After all, aren’t these two elements diametrically opposed like Ying and Yang. Normally, yes. But the improbable mix ofsporty, casual elements, and luxury components is what makes the GUESS Men’s U0291G4 Two-Tone Chronograph Watch such an intriguing timepiece. It is able to mix genres easily and fluidly without looking forced, contrived, or ‘trying too hard.’ In fact, given the wide range of social settings you can safely wear this timepiece in, it’s obvious Guess has hit the ball out of the watch design park once again with this model.
There is something distinctly postmodern about this watch. It has the classic elements of a luxury watch with all its sparkly white stones but it also has the rugged three dial chronograph of a sports watch. Add to this to the casual versatility of this watch and you get a bling accessory that looks great in a wide range of indoor and outdoor settings. Quite a coup if you ask me!
U0291G4 Movement Type: Quartz
Given the amount of crystals this watch is sporting, you’d be justified in thinking that it would cost way more than the $200-ish price tag it boasts of. This timepiece definitely has the bling factor of many more expensive timepieces. In terms of design, it is no slouch either. You are getting a sporty watch with lots of luxury and performance. No wonder, many people, even veteran watch fans, are quite pleasantly shocked the GUESS Men’s U0291G4 costs what it costs. It has an elite appearance but a very democratic and down to earth price.
You can chalk up this model’s very budget friendly price to its quartz movement. If this watch had the typical automatic movement, expect that you would pay way more for it even if the automatic movement doesn’t sport the flag of Switzerland. Well, thanks to the power of quartz movement, you get to make quite an impression with this timepiece without having to mortgage your home a second time. Quartz movement is a small price to pay for style and versatility!
Special Features: Water resistance to 330 feet
Believe it or not, this Guess timepiece model is water resistant to a depth of 330 feet. You might find that shocking. After all, given its design and the number of crystals it sports, as well as its overall versatility, you’d think this timepiece already brings a lot of value to the table. And you would be absolutely correct. At that point, Guess could have easily stopped engineering other features into this watch and watch fans would still consider the U0291G4 good value.
Still, in keeping with Guess’ reputation for adding value and pushing the envelope, this global brand has ensured that this model is water resistant to as low as 330 feet underwater. This is a very welcome feature indeed. While I don’t necessarily see this watch’s typical wearer to frolic at the beach on a regular basis, this model’s moisture resistance can go a long way in helping its buyers protect the value of their investment every time they wash their hands or try some swimming or other beach side or marine fun activities.
U0291G4 Shock and awe value
The GUESS Men’s U0291G4 Two-Tone Chronograph Watch is priced very attractively. Considering its classy look, its sporty ambition and the pedigree of its brand, most people would expect to pay more for this watch. If you find this watch available on Amazon, definitely check it out and snap it up. It definitely won’t last long.
