Mamona Watches Review
If you are interested in an attractive fashion watch that will look good, run well and not break the bank, you might want to take a look at Mamona watches. They’re a relatively new brand, but they’ve already developed a good reputation for offering a quality product at an affordable price.
No, you’re not going to find cutting edge technology, diamonds, gold, or elaborate complications when you’re buying, but they’re not trying to tap into those markets. They’re offering nice-looking casual timepieces that you can wear every day without worrying about the price.
Read on for the full Mamona watches review.
Most buyers will find the build quality to be more than adequate, provided you’re not interested in dong some deep sea diving. These watches offer stainless steel cases and they claim to have sapphire crystal protecting the watch face. Water resistance is modest; it’s rated at 30 meters, but that’s watch-speak for “don’t immerse it in water.” It’s OK to get s splash or two of water on it, but the manufacturer does not recommend that you get it wet.
A few models also use ceramic in their bands, which is an attractive and rugged material that offers a lot of strength relative to its weight.
The watches are made in China, but they’re are powered by Japanese-made quartz movements. We’d guess that those movements come from Miyota, which is the largest and best known of the Japanese movement manufacturers. Miyota is owned by Citizen, and they’re movements are quite reliable.
We haven’t seen any innovation in regards to Mamona watches, at least in terms of the timekeeping itself. They do have several innovations elsewhere on the watch. Their deployment clasp makes it easy to fasten the band to your wrist, and you can even do it with one hand. Some of their men’s watches have a simple and easy to use magnetic fastener, which allows you to quickly and easily adjust the band to fit any sized wrist.
The watches feature traditional and minimalist styling that’s suitable for all occasions. While we’d say that they’re best suited for casual wear, most of their models are also suitable for wearing at work. A few of the ladies models also feature faux-diamond crystals and gold tones, though you won’t find any diamonds or actual gold in their product line.
All models are sold with a gift box and a polishing cloth. The company makes additional links available at no cost should you find that the band isn’t large enough to fit your wrist.
A few of the ladies models are sold with a matching bracelet, which you can wear with the watch or separately by itself.
The company appears to offer more models for women than they do for men, and they have several dozen models available altogether. At least one of the men’s models is available as a chronograph, though complications in general are fairly limited with this brand.
The care and maintenance is fairly simple. As they all have quartz movements, you won’t have to take them to a jeweler for regular maintenance. You will, however, have to replace the battery every couple of years.
As with all watches, you should keep your watch away from extremes in temperature and avoid exposing them to strong magnetic fields, which could damage the movement. As water resistance is modest, it is best to avoid exposing them to water, if possible. With proper care, your watch should run well for a number of years.
The warranty offered with the purchase ois for two years against defects in materials and craftsmanship. This is the industry standard, and is the very same type of warranty you’d receive when you buy watches that cost thousands of dollars. These watches are quite reliable and are tested at the factory prior to shipping, so defects are likely quite rare.
While the company offers good quality, there are lots of watch brands that offer that. What these watches also offer is good quality at an an affordable price. We have seen prices ranging from a low of about $40 to a high of about $300, though most models fall into the $50-$100 range.
That makes them quite affordable, and many buyers will likely want to buy more than one. They’ve received rave reviews from buyers, who are often just as impressed with the packaging as they are with the watches themselves.
They are available for sale at a number of retailers, both online and offline. A few major department stores carry them, and you can also find them at many online retailers. Oddly enough, you cannot buy Mamona watches at the company’s official Website, as they recommend that you purchase them through Amazon.
Most retailers carry a number of models and you’ll find that prices are not likely to vary much from one retailer to another. On the other hand, the prices for Mamona watches are quite reasonable to begin with, so you’ll find that there’s little reason to spend time shopping around to get the best price.
While you are not likely to mistake this brand for the likes of Hublot or Tissot, you will find that they make a simple, elegant, attractive timepiece that you can purchase at a very affordable price. Unlike other low-end brands, these watches use Japanese quartz movements, so you can be assured that you are buying an accurate timepiece.
Pricing is good, the build quality is decent and the company offers a reasonable selection of models from which to choose. The warrant for Mamona watches is quite good and all in all, the company offers a good value.
