James McCabe is a new watch brand that is offering affordable automatic watches with some style. The model I am reviewing is the Rose Gold BELFAST watch. The retails for around $327.37USD and comes in Rose Gold case/Black Dial, Silver case/Black Dial, and Rose Gold case/White dial.
Automatic Skeleton Movement
Stainless Steel Rose Gold Case
Black Dial with Rose Gold Index
Brown Leather Strap
Case diameter with crown: 46mm
The watch features Rose Gold plated case, see through caseback, open heart and leather strap. The watch is considered an affordable dress watch although I recommend you buy a premium strap. The leather strap that comes with it is okay but a little stiff.
The packaging it comes in is a cardboard box outer and then a very nice inner gift box. The watch face is easily readable with numbers at the 12 and 6 position and indices at the hour markers in rose gold. The minute and hour hands are filled with lume material. This is a dress watch so don’t expect much lume out of this watch. The crown is a push and pull type so only 5ATM water resistance. The back features a exhibition case back so you can see the automatic movement. The movement is not mentioned but it is an Japanese automatic movement
The watch is very nice for the money. It is a watch I would wear on special occasions and on dates. The rose gold is very well plated and should last for a long time. The 44mm case is a little bit more of a modern size for a dress watch but should work for most.
