This is a beautiful watch. You need to know that it is a big watch and pretty heavy. If that doesn't bother you, you will love wearing it. The dial is easy to read. The latch works great. I ordered a link-remover kit for under *** and removed 4 links. Because of its weight, it needs to fit pretty snug. These links are in two pieces and if you haven't experienced removing them, you can find directions on the internet. IMPORTANT--to set the watch you have to unscrew the stem before you can pull it out. I did not find this in the directions.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Looks exactly like the image on the site.
How accurate was the sizing? It is sizable by removing links.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. So far, it seems to be good quality. I've used it about 2 weeks.
First, this watch is ginormous and heavy. The actual weight is 112 grams and it is very thick. Not only is the watch case itself thick, but the crystal is like coke bottle glasses.
Second, the look is very "cheap". The "diamonds" don't sparkle (just chips), the ceramic bracelet looks very "plastic", and the overall styling is what you'd expect to find in watch at a last-minute, impulse-buy, accessory rack at the cheap-and-trendy store.
Third, the date is extra-tiny. It can hardly be seen and I have excellent vision.
Overstock's service was great though. The return was super simple and the next watch (different style) was wonderful.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Accurate, although the actual size was hard to tell
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Appeared very "cheap", but was ok.
I am very pleased with the purchase. The watch band was quite lg. and had to be sized. The instructions could have been better. The stem is one that unscrews to set the date and time, however, the jeweler had to point this out to me. I did not see any sz for the battery, which will probably fail in a yr. or two, that would be another helpful suggestion. The date is very small and not much use without a magnifying glass.
I have been enjoying the bezel that turns to the lg. hand and thus you can tell how long something takes to achieve.
So far, I am very pleased with the product. and thought the pricing was reasonable. Service very prompt.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? good
How accurate was the sizing? good

Hello abbiecat, we recommend taking it to a local jeweler. They should have no problem adjusting the band. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on May 28, 2013
