I am a Marcasite lover and have many pieces; when I saw this watch I just HAD to have it...I read all the reviews..you should ALWAYS read all the reviews on ALL purchases you make !!! I only put a 4* on the durability because I have only had it about 1 month but I don't wear it everyday either. I have worn it with blue jeans and dress-up to church and it looks great both ways !! The watch does spin around but I don't mind since it is so easily moved back in place and both sides look so nice anyway. IF they ever bring this watch back in-stock...SNAP IT UP !!! you will NOT be disappointed at all !!! The little I have worn my watch; I have received many compliments on it and get asked where I got it...I always tell OVERSTOCK.COM !!! especially since it is based right here in Utah just a few miles from my home. I have made MANY purchases from the "O" and have NOT been disappointed with a single one because I read the REVIEWS first !!!
I have only had the watch a few weeks, so I don't know how long it will actually work-I am hard on watches. But as far as the appearance, the watch is just beautiful. The online photo does not do it justice. The marcasite sparkles and the chain band is unique and beautiful. I have received several compliments on the watch. Some think it really is a stunning and valuable antique. You can't go wrong for the price. The only thing I worry about is the clasp breaking-I wish it were of a sturdier design.
Truly a fashion statement and conversation piece. It looks vintage with a bit of understated sparkle. Fits like a bracelet, drapes gracefully on the wrist, comfortable on the arm. Keeps accurate time. Dial face has a vintage mother of pearl type finish and vintage font/script which lends authenticity. Looks like a much more expensive watch.

This is a beautiful watch that has turned out to be too dressy, used at weddings etc. Encrusted with marcasite, it seems almost baroque. Some will certainly wear it everywhere and to you I say snap it up. It's worth it!

Since I got the watch, I have received many compliments. I love marqucite jewelry, therefore I have a lot of errings and necklaces. Now I have a watch to match. It is comfortable to wear and easy to place on my wrist with the easy clap on the band. I love it. I wear it every day. Thinking of getting a second one to save for dress up days.

Although the watch looked pretty, the clasp did not work. I had ordered 2 of these for gifts, but neither one had a working clasp. I sent them back

I love marcasite jewelry and decided to buy the watch after reading the positive comments. Well, it surpassed my expectations. In fact, a co-worker loved it so much that she offered to buy it from me right then and there. Of course, i told her where she could buy it for herself. I love the watch. It's classy and feminine.
The quality of this watch was not good at all! It is very light weight, almost seamed like it was made of plastic. Did not cling to my wrist ( meaning it was stiff). The picture on the website makes it look better than it really is. sorry peeps
Out of the box I had to replace the battery though I suppose that's expected if the watch has been in storage for some time. I have small wrists (6") and the length of the wristband is very large (7 1/2") with no way to adjust. It rests about halfway up my forearm and when it slinks back to my wrist, the clock face ends up on the underside which makes me nervous about damage. With the style, the slinkiness is ok...just be careful if you work at a desk or do something that repeatedly bumps your wrists/forearms. It *may* be possible for a professional jeweler to remove some links from the chains, but I didn't buy a watch online just to visit and pay a jeweler for both a new battery and size adjustment. Overall, the watch is pretty and goes well with a very feminine outfit.
Beautiful watch, but can you say, CHEAP! First, the hour hand would not turn, so I couldn't set the time. I tried pushing the little knob in and out, but the hour hand would not budge. Next, the clasp would not open. It had to be pried apart. Lastly, once the watch was, finally, fastened around my wrist, it fall off. I thought I didn't clasp it correctly, but no! The darn band broke! Honestly, I was like, "What the...? I contacted Overstock; they sent a replacement. I have not received it yet, but I don't have high hopes.
