Mine looks just like the photo! I was pleased with this.
It is really easy to set: just pull out the large stem in the middle to adjust the time; press in the other two stems to move the hands around days of the week and days of the month. GMT adjusts automatically with the hour, as does the moon phase. The day and date adjust as well, if the hour is turned past the 12-o-clock marker.
The diamonds are brighter than I expected--very pretty. The white numbering and lettering is small and a bit hard to see; you have to turn your wrist to reduce glare from the MOP and crystal, then it is pretty visible. I would say someone with poor eye site may have a tough time reading the small characters.
The band is a nice, soft, thick leather. The band smells like quality leather. I have a 6 1/2" bony wrist and the watch looks great on me.
The display box is really nice--great for gift-giving!
The watch feels heavy on the wrist, which is something I prefer. I am unsure about how many jewels the watch has. I wind mine a few times, once a day--more if I haven't worn it in a few days So far, it keeps accurate time.
I just love this watch. I was afraid it was going to be too big for me, but it was exactly what I had been looking for so I bought it anyway. I'm so glad I did buy it. While it is on the bigger side, I couldn't be happier. I'm female and I have a small wrist too. It isn't a dainty watch, but it is stunning.
I just got my watch and i was so happy. Its stunning! It looks exectly like the image on site even better. its deffenatelly oversised if you looking for a light small watch, but i just love it. Thank you Overstock.com
Please tell us about the quality of the product. excellent
I ordered this watch because I was tired of buying batteries for my other timepieces. It does not keep correct time as it usually is 10-15 minutes fast. Ladies it is a unisex watch and very large. The dial is beautiful and looks expensive. I, would send it back, but I threw the boxes it came with out too soon. I will wear it occasionally so for the price it is just ok.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Good
How accurate was the sizing? Good

I never take this watch off and get a TON of compliments on it. Best purchase ever made! Is a bigger than some watches but that is the style right now. I love it! And if for whatever reason if you are dissatisfied in any way, O.co will take care of you in a completely "no hassle" way (I know from personal experience). So if you are even considering it, buy it! You will have no regrets. Who doesn't love that???

Please tell us about the quality of the product. looks expensive and keeps perfect time!
I am wearing this watch on right now (in gray). I've had it for about 9 months. I have to honest and say that it does run fast. I have to reset it a few times a day. I still wear it because I really do love the watch, even with that issue. I need to replace the black watch (a different model) that I have and am seriously considering buying this black one. That's how much I like it. It is a larger watch on my very small wrist.
I eventually had to return the watch because it kept running fast. Every day I would reset it, and by the end of the day it would be ~10 minutes fast. Beautiful watch, though. Like the other reviews said, it is big. I like big watches, so I was very pleased with the appearance. Overstock customer service was very helpful with the return process, as always!
Over all this is a nice watch. The band is very stiff, but my one disappointment is that the watch face is not dark at all. I was expecting a black or dark Steele gray face, but it is a light bluish gray color.
This is a very nice watch and I really like it. The only reason I wouldn't recommend this to a friend is because I was really looking forward to the Safire blue color face, (which is how it looks in the picture) and the watch came with a more mother of pearl grey tone, which makes it difficult to see the hands because they are silver against the grey. I find I have to move my wrist around to catch a certain light in order to be able to tell the time. The other dials within the watch are kind of a cool feature and make the watch more interesting, but the type on each dial is so small you can't read what they say so it kind of makes them pointless for anything other than looks. All in all I like the watch and the value is good so for that reason I'm keeping it.
