The case is large for many feminine wrists at 43mm in width, but that goes along with the brand's larger than life personality. The dial is easy to read and clear, and I like the metal lined numerals and MOP face. The hands probably shouldn't be skeletonized, but it isn't that bad. There is also no lume, as most sport watches have. While the inner case is plastic, it is sandwiched by hefty looking steel bezel and back with gold-toned screws. Inside the watch is a Swiss quartz movement. The watch is fun and look nice on the right type of woman. It is even large enough for men who might like the look. Execution of the design is good if you like the look but I am concerned about the retail price. Ritmo Mundo asks $500 for the Carnival 242, which in my opinion is a bit high for something with a plastic inner case and lugs and mineral crystal. With a price drop it would be a better value.
