I purchased this watch on Gem Day and then returned it as I thought it too dark. However, I kept looking at its pictures, thinking that I should not have returned it. So when I saw that it had gone to clearance price I reordered it. WOW! Am I ever glad that I repurchased it! ! The watch that I received has almost an ombre look to it with a multiplicity of shades of blue sapphires on its face. Too, I really like the size of the watch as it is neither too large nor small. To top it all off, it is denim friendly. What more could a girl ask for? In my opinion it is a great value at this price point.

The concept was good. The sapphire dial is admittedly very dark. Not black but definitely midnight blue on mine. The hour, minute and second hands are silver colored. The band design is lacking something. It just doesn't feel substantial nor does it complement the watch itself. Though it is easily adjusted it is too narrow and too silvery for the larger dial. The bezel also appears a bit cheesy. The sapphire accents are in a weird location. Not the typical quarter hour positions. Something is a tad off with it. Don't love it. Don't hate it. Tried too hard to make it special. Should have kept the bezel and band simple and allowed the sapphires to be the star. Sometimes less is more. The watch is keeping accurate time but it just doesn't look as expensive as it is. I wasn't wowed by this one. At this price, I must love it. Will likely return.

...doesn't work. The sapphires are set on a black dial base and no light penetrates the stones. Although I found the watch to be pretty, at this price I need it to wow me and it just didn't. It is edgy and cool and certainly different from anything else around but I sent it back because it just didn't look like I was wearing sapphires. I also like my watch bracelets a little more substantial in weight.

I purchased what I thought would be a BLUE Sapphire watch on Gem Day and received more like black/blue stones. I am a educated gemstone collector and I was very disappointed in the color of these sapphires; you could barely see their blueish color, you had to look very, very closely and still it was difficult! Ridiculous for this amount of money!!!! I gave it 2 stars for the beautiful bracelet, but again, lots of disappointment in the gemstone color showing up! I also heard the same thing from someone who ordered the Ruby watch! BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!

I had ordered this early in the day when it was the TSV but then cancelled the order thinking it was too expensive a watch. I later saw a presentation in the day and thought I passed on something really special. I just received this watch after being on the waitlist, for what seemed like an eternity. What a dud! I have the Ecclissi Sleeping Beauty Watch and just love the quality. The band on this watch feels so cheap! It is hollow. Unlike my other Ecclissi watch, there is no weight to the item. I was prepared for a dark face and a slightly different quality to the band after reading the posted reviews, but, after receiving this, I cannot think of anything good to say about this item. I can only confirm that the watch is ticking. Time to find another birthday present for this September baby.

I love this watch. I'm wearing it right now. I was amazed at how easy it was to remove the extra link, and it then fit me perfectly! My husband noticed this watch the first day I wore it. I could tell he thought it was VERY EXPENSIVE! Well, it's not cheap but......anyway, he was very happy I had a beautiful watch to wear. When I heard the host describe it as a watch that could read as navy or black - I was sold! I ordered it immediately! I must say, I'm sad when I have to put it away at the end of the day. I love wearing this watch with my sapphire and diamond wedding band. Yes, not all of the stones shout I'M BLUE! But, I enjoy it's beauty and uniqueness. Oh, and, by the way, it even keeps accurate time! I wouldn't mind have the ruby and emerald, too! LOL! Oh, and I am very thankful for the easy payment plan. Thanks QVC!

I was going to review this watch when I first received it until I saw quite a few negative reviews. I was expecting the sapphires to appear a little darker because they do not have light from the sides and underneath, as you would have in earrings, necklaces and rings. There is a tremendous amount of sparkle with any movement what so ever. The stones are many shades of blue, and it varies with every kind of light. While it is elegant, it can also be worn everyday, even with jeans. I don't understand the negative reviews on the stainless steel bracelet. It will last a lifetime, if not more. I like the fact that I can wear the watch higher on my arm when I'm wearing bracelets, and remove a link when I'm not. I am VERY satisfied!

Didn't even take it out of the box. The entire face seemed to be one black blob, and this was under intense lighting. Took it to bright sunlight and only a teeny change of one glimmer of blue. How this can be sold a BLUE sapphire i don't understand. Returned within minutes.
