Dane,

I would never tell somebody not to purchase a watch, but I have to say that I recently purchased a Swiss Legend and I was not impressed with it at all. I sent it back and ended up purchasing something different. If you like it then buy it. That is a good price. I paid a lot more for the one that I purchased.

It is a decent watch for $40. I guess you have to ask yourself what your expectations are at this price point.

For the money it would be a great bang around watch
I agree. The only better deal that I can think of is the $58 Ocean Ghost. That is a nice item for that price range and it is an Automatic.

I agree 100%, for $40 it looks like a nice watch. I'm just not a big fan of Swiss Legend. Just my 2 cents. Like I said I would never talk somebody out of buying a watch. If you like it then buy it.

You can't really go wrong for $39.

What else would you get? A Timex.

It probably has a nice Swiss movement.

It looks like a substantial piece.

Get it and if you don't like it you could sell it to a friend for what you paid.

Even at 40.00, this watch does nothing for me.
I agree with Mike on this one, but I have never really been a SL fan of any of their models to date.

If you are looking for a watch you wont mind banging around then I say go for it. But if you are looking for something better I might suggest saving the $40-50 towards something else.

Dane, I have this watch in silvertone blue and it's a great knock around watch.. I got mine about 3yrs ago and paid $79 for it.. less then a yr later I bought another one for my son.. IMO it's a great watch for the money

I'm a fan of Swiss Legend and have bought several models in both auto and quartz executions (I'm wearing my SL GMT at the moment).

I must admit that I never cared for the Portofino. There were other models that caught my attention (and my money).

At $40 . . . it looks like a bargain!
