I love this watch. It's very sparkly and beautiful - the swarovski crystals really make an impact. The band is shiny, thick, and substantial. It's a large watch, but I really think there's something special about it. I have tiny wrists, and once I had 4-5 links removed, it fits very well and looks beautiful on. I will say -- when I looked at the picture online, I thought there were crystals all around the face, but it's actually just stainless with a textured pattern. But, it's beautiful and not "too much" Also, I saw this watch elsewhere for $50 more - a very good value.
