"do you have to take to a jeweler to have the band shortened"
I really like the watch. The image was a good representation of the product. I took it to the mall to have it resized (band); I did not have the tools for the screws in the band. The only incorrect information was that this is NOT a screw down crown. Otherwise, I am satisfied with the purchase....

I've purchased 2 other ceramic watches before and paid a small fortune for each. I was concerned that this would be a real let down because of the price but figured I'd give it a try anyway. I LOVE IT! it is a larger face than most women's watches but that's the look I like. It's high quality and I got compliments on it the very first day I wore it.Read More
