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 !!!
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.

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.
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!

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

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.
The first watch arrived and the band fell off. I sent in for a replacement. The second watch arrived and the clasp will not close. Two in a row means that is a very poor product. I am sending this one back for a refund. Only partial though beccause they are deducting the price of shipping from my refund. I would not recomment this product to anyone.
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.
I really liked the looks of this watch but the first one sent had a broken clasp. I contacted the number for returns and everything proceeded efficiently. I chose to try a second one and was glad I did. The watch had a great price and looks elegant on the wrist.
I love the way this watch looks. However I cannot attach it to my wrist, nor is my husband able to attach it. The attaching mechanism is quite small, delicate and looks as if it would work well for a person with young and nimble fingers. The watch keeps excellent time. I was going to return it, but never got around to doing so.
watch looks exactly as pictured, would be better for me if band had been longer, (i am overweight and arm is larger). the clasp does not stay closed well, just the least pressure on it and it opens. already turning my are green in spots--there again--it is not real lose on my arm
