Had to take it to a jeweler to have links removed, this is not an at-home job as with non-ceramic watches. Called AKRIBOS XXIV customer svc phone a week ago for help on this and still waiting for their call back. Also, wish the 2 links attached to the dial would move - they're static, thus making the watch have a weird shape. Im happy with my purchase, just wish I could have avoided some of the "motions"
So very disappointed since the description stated that it could be sized to fit a 6 1/2 wrist. The face of the watch is so big that there would be absolutely no band at all. I love big watch faces but this was not even close to working. Returning watch.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Not accurate
- How accurate was the sizing? Not at all
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I am returning since the size was so big it could be a great quality in your drawer.
The watch looked just like the picture and really liked it. Have gotten many compliments
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? yes
- How accurate was the sizing? the watch was way too big, but I found out that typical. Cost $7 to remove the links, no big deal
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was excellent
This watch is huge! Although I read the dimensions listed before ordering, I didn't expect it to be as big as it is. I needed six links taken out and the face is almost the width of my wrist. If you want a massive watch, this is a great choice. It looks great and seems durable. If you have a small wrist or prefer something dainty, find a smaller ceramic watch.
The watch is very pretty but the picture is misleading. I would recommend measuring one of your current watches (across the face, so you get the diameter in mm) first. Then you'll get an idea of how big the face of this watch is. The band size is no problem-- I always have to get links taken out of my watches. The face does take up nearly the entire width of my wrist and does not wrap smoothly around my hand. Many ceramic watches have very large faces-- I've come to find out. I plan on returning for a smaller watch. Wish they made this same elegant design in a smaller diameter. Too bad :(.
