My friends, family, EVERYONE loves this watch! I gave it to my boyfriend for Christmas and he keeps getting comments about how great it looks. The quality is great and the diamonds make it look even nicer. The only thing I should say is that to change the numberical date, you have to push in the button above the watch's dial with a pen or pencil. Every time you push the button in, the numerical date will advance one day. The instructions did not say that! Other than that, this watch is awesome and totally exceeded my expectations.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The actual watch looks much better - the face isn't a solid black. It has a face that reflects the light, kind of like the inside of a shell - it's hard to describe, but looks even better than the picture.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality.
This watch is amazing I got it and immediately wanted to go out and show it off so I did. Instantly got complement after complement. Truly an amazing watch!!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Amazing more than I could of asked for.
Okay. Diamonds don't sparkle as much as I thought but they still look good and the bracelet is way better than I was expecting. But, got the watch two days ago and noticed there was a scratch on the dial. In addition, within a few hours of wearing the watch, the hand on the date sub-dial fell off completely. I am currently sending it back to get fixed. I am willing for one more try with the watch because it was so appealing to my friends and I when I got it. Hopefully, I will have a better experience and hoping for the best.
- How accurate was the sizing? A little big.

This watch is simply amazing. I brought it to my local jeweler to have a link removed, and he was even blown away by how nice it was. The watch is quiet, and beautiful to look at. It also has a nice weight to it, and thats usually how i judge the quality of a watch.

I had bought this for my cousin as a graduation gift, and never hearing the brand Akribos before, I was a little hesitant. The RSVP price had lured me into believing this was a quality brand and the reviews I've read had made it sound like a great idea. My cousin tells me it looks nice, except for one of the dials having fallen off. I don't know about the manufacturing process, but it was a poorly done job. This amateur error should not be happening on a watch that is supposedly $700 RSVP. The RSVP price cut is just a hoax. I am planning on returning this product and had already purchased my cousin a Bulova watch from Macy's for about 80 more dollars than what had been paid for this. I would definitely not recommend this product as it had not even been used and the dial had fallen off. I'm not saying yours will have loose dials, but I'm sending a warning to beware of sub-par watches. I'd recommend you purchase a watch from a brand that has a reputation and a moderate price range (Stuhrling, Bulova, Seiko, Citizen). Perhaps even something from a company such as Emporio Armani or CK if you're able to view the watch in person. This experience had made me more hesitant to order watches, and I'm definitely never buying from this brand again.

The watch is just what I expected, nice weight and size. Setting the date dial is a little tricky. I figured it out after messing with the dials. You have to push the small button on the top right to make the date dial turn once all the way. Then you have to pull the main dial knob out and turn it clock wise all the way and you will see the day dial move once.

You never really know what it will be like until it arrives...you will be so very happy with this purchase. It is so beautiful. Just the right amount of understated bling, and the mother of pearl face is subtle, but elegant. Heavy too. Presents well, just so happy I bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas, what a savings, too!
