Watch was packaged in the "factory" box, which looked like it had shipped from Tibet. Completely beat down and rough. Opened box to find watch laying in the bottom, not wrapped around the satch holder. The protective cover was missing on the face and the watch was running. It should have had a clip in place to insure battery isn't dead upon receipt of product. Not impressed.....!!!
I like large watches and am not afraid of bling but when this watch first arrived it seemed like too much bling even for me. Maybe it was all the fancy packaging (no complaints there). I did eventually keep it. When I went to have it sized the watch repairer commented on how durable the metal is. One can only remove so many links off it but it fits my small wrist just fine. Haven't worn it out yet but I like that it looks different from most watches on the market.
We bought this for our daughter as a high school graduation gift. It is beautiful, substantial, and well-packaged. I was not familiar with this brand, but I knew I wanted the quality of a Swiss timepiece. I took it to a jeweler for sizing, and he said this manufacturer is a good one. The watch is a little large, but that is the trend right now. Our daughter loves it and we know it will be a classic piece for years to come.
