I happen to count on Movado for good quality in a timepiece. This petite version of the current look of oversized watches is refreshing and truly comfortable. I like the navy face against the silver bracelet. The only thing was that it is made so big in the bracelet - I always have to have three or four links removed for proper fit. Also, the deployment band is very stiff and therefore, hard to use at first. I stayed in the jewelry shop where I had it fitted for my wrist for quite a while as they tried to show me how to open and close it. I have arthritis and this watch was very difficult for me to open as your finger has to have strength to get underneath the clasp to pop it open - the salespeople had no trouble, but if you are stiff in the digits, bring it to a jeweler to assist you. BTW - I was told by my jeweler, that this a fantastic price for a Movado....truly excellent. I feel that the smaller watch will be on the comeback trail as the large ones are really bulky for a lot of wome. I gave it five stars despite my problems because most women will not have my issues (except sizing) and it is indeed a well made and fashinably demure watch.
I picked out this watch for my husband to give to me for my birthday (he sometimes needs assistance with such things). I received this watch within a few days of ordering it and absolutely love it. It does have a rather strong clasp, which I view as a positive to help prevent me from losing it, however if someone has arthritis in their hands/fingers it may be an issue. I have received many compliments on this watch already!
I was encouraged to buy this watch by reading the area of why other purchasers bought this watch. I now wish I had waited, now that the watch is now at a reduced price. However, I'm still pleased with it. I hope that it will operate longer than the three year warranty that I took out. I'm also counting on the reputation that Movado watches has.
