I would have considered if it came with a leather strap.

Sometimes don't be surprised that you get what you pay for. Some of the listings even state that it is PU leather so there is no reason to be surprised. But for $1 shipped halfway around the world I will accept it, these eBay straps aren't much different than the low priced straps you pay $10 for at a department store. So I say cut out the middleman and buy them directly from the source by eBay.

Solid watch for the price. It is a 36mm which is considered on the small side these days.

This big watch trend just keeps on getting bigger and bigger. Soon people will be wearing clocks on their wrists. I much prefer the 36mm size, it is proportional to the wrist and looks good and that was how it was in the near past.

I agree however wrist sizes vary and what is proportional to you may look like a child's watch on someone else.

In my opinion you are overreacting, for example here is a "small" vintage Rolex on an average sized wrist and it looks excellent. My advice is don't let a slighter "smaller" size than what is trendy today (and even note that large watches might not even be trendy tomorrow) prevent you from buying a watch if you like how it looks.

Usually for entry level watches the metal bracelet links are held together by friction pins. All you need a push pin, you run it along the concrete ground to blunt the tip and use that end to push out the pins in the metal bracelet joint and remove the links as needed to size for your wrist. There should be instructions on how to shorten the bracelet, they come with the watch.
