4.0 out of 5 stars
big but rather beautiful!!!, 9 Mar 2014
Delivery excellent. Presentation box 4 star.
I knew this was a BIG watch after reading previous reviews BUT because it was exactly what I had been looking for (for quite a while) I thought that I would give it a try.
Yes it was a slight shock when I saw the size, and felt the weight. When I first tried it on I realised that we would have to take out at least 4 links. I could actually put the watch on without undoing the strap and I do not have particularly small wrists. BUT when I did hold it in place correctly it did look rather "fetching".
The chap at the jewellers was a little worried about taking out so many links because it was half the strap according to him. He did the job and altered the fitting on the clasp (did not know about that), and only charged a fiver (which I thought was OK considering the length of time he was working on the watch strap.
Now I wear it almost every day and keep looking at it because it really does look very good. I am trying to keep up with the new fashions, and am so glad that I persevered. (well past 50 years of age!!)
