Summary: This watch has a very solid feel to it, but is very elegant and dainty. The contrasting face is easy for me to read, even without my reading glasses. My last Seiko lasted 27 years, and I was sad to have to replace it, but this is a beautiful, classy replacement. The band is generously sized. I took it to the jeweler and had three links removed, because I have a small wrist. (Not, IMHO, a child's watch as another reviewer suggested.
Watch good for young girls, minature watch for adults

Summary: This watch is gorgeous on the website; however I was greatly surprised to see it in person. It is a minaturized version of an adult watch. The faceplate and dials were so tiny, it was almost unreadable. It would be perfect for a young girl or very small framed teen; definitely not an adult sized watch. So disappointed as it is a beautiful watch, just needs to be adult sized.
Summary: I bought one of these exact same watches locally at a jewelry store for much more then lost it. I loved it so much that I looked for another and couldn't find it. Amazon had it and much cheaper. Came in box with warranty, just love it.
Summary: This is an elegant watch. The band is slim and petite and has wonderful "sparkle". The jeweler's clasp feels secure and is very discrete - no bulky, obvious clasp mechanism shows. When I took the watch to a jeweler to size the band, he was impressed with the screw-type links and ease of adjustment. The gold tone hands are very easy to see against the black face - I was concerned about being able to see the time without my reading glasses but I have no problem whatsoever.
