Honora Cultured Rondel Pearl Cuff Watch w/ Mother-of-Pearl Dial
Prettier in person
I bought the only color left, lilac. I would have loved white. However, when I received the lilac, love it!!! The watch is lovely on TV but so much better in person. Gorgeous watch, don't be afraid to purchase the lilac pearls, gorgeous! Good for the lady who likes feminine jewelry.
SO LOVELY!!! AN INCREDIBLE VALUE!
I just received this watch last week. It is so much prettier and more refined than the photos show. I was hesitant to purchase this because I wasn't sure if I'd care for the Lilac color in person or how practical that color would be for regular wear with the variety of other colors in my wardrobe. I was also a little concerned about sizing & fit based on some of the other reviews. Also, since QVC has been obsessed with only selling watches with ginormous 'boyfriend' faces for the past 6 to 8 years, I was afraid it might be oversized, which, despite the trend, is not something I want strapped to my wrist. I didn't need a watch but I just LOVE pearls and I thought the price seemed reasonable enough for the quality I was expecting. Still, I was sure this would end up being a return. ...Well, there's no way I would even consider returning this beauty! It is lovely! The Lilac color is very pretty & refined and is almost like a neutral as opposed to a candy or very pastel Lilac. It works with lots of other colors. The face of the watch is not small. It is substantial but not big & ridiculous and oversized. What really stunned me though was the quality & size of the pearls. They are so glowing & super lustrous and a very good size, not small or tiny. These are top quality pearls. Mine have no imperfections at all, and there are a LOT of pearls on this item. All are beautifully color-matched. ...This watch is really beautiful. So stylish and feminine without being fussy-looking. It actually has a clean, updated, modern look to it but still is very expensive-looking & classic. Also, with a little initial bending to the band, the fit is now very comfortable. I think the style is great for all ages from pre-teen to senior and because it's a cuff the fit is forgiving. It's definitely a steal for the price. I would have paid 4 times that and it's very flattering on. Makes my wrist & arm look slim & elegant. I only wish I had seen this when it was still available in the White choice, as white pearls and silver are my favorite combination. (QVC & Honora, please bring this back again in White!) ...This watch far exceeded my expectations and I got 3 to 4 times my money's worth on this purchase. It's now my favorite watch. Lots of compliments too. Well done, Honora!
Lots of Pearls
I got this watch in lilac. Unfortunately, the color is not the vibrant lilac purple as the model watch shown. It's more of a pastel Ming mauve color. I was disappointed because I would have LOVED to have had one in the color shown. Also, the watch face is hard to read unless you have a good light source. This would be a great place for a watch that lights up when you push a button on the watch case itself.
As for size: I have a size 7 wrist and out of the box this watch was too big. But I kept gently teasing the memory wire and also bent it at the point where the last row of pearls meets the watch case and in time I was able to get it down to a nice snug fit. I love pearls and this watch has lots and lots of big beautiful iridescent pearls, so I'm keeping it.
loved the watch
I received the watch and it is beautiful.I ordered the average and it fits perfect.It is very well made and it is not heavy on the wrist.I am very pleased and got it on lunchtime special which makes it even better.
For Pearl Gals!
Unlike others who have reviewed this watch, I do not feel as though it will fall off when I put it on. I adjust it (slightly squeeze) once I put the watch on, and it stays! I do, however, have a smaller wrist. I ordered this in the pink color, and it looks just like it did on the show. It is easy to read and fairly light weight. I'm glad I made the purchase. I think that this is a truly unique watch! Way to go, Honora!
Received my cuff today in lilac. I wanted the white but this is beautiful too. I have about a 7" wrist and ordered the medium. It seems to fit well. This cuff is very classy and well made. The pearls are gorgeous as is the mother of pearl face. Love the size. I see others had issues with the cuff "falling off". It feels very secure on my wrist. The weight is perfect and the cuff stays in place on the wrist with movement. It keeps very good time. I am a happy person. I do really love this piece and so happy I ordered it. I think a larger wristed person may have problems wearing this cuff especially with falling off because of the way it is made.
I received this Honora pearl watch in 3 colors: white, rose and lilac. The rose and lilac watches arrived first. They are both lovely! However, the bands are definitely shaped differently and you cannot bend to change them. The pink watch was more of an oval shape, and the lilac more round. Whoever packed the lilac watch noticed it too, because they bent the white piece that holds the watch inside the box to match its shape. Anyway, I am a plus sized woman who wears an 8" bracelet. Both of them fit me, but definitely the pink watch was smaller, you could really tell the difference in the silver cuff pieces on how far apart they were on my wrist. I will gift that one to my sister who has a bit smaller wrist. The white watch arrived yesterday, and while I had already become attatched to the lilac watch, for some reason the white one is simply gorgeous! And, like the lilac watch, the band is round shaped, not oval like the pink, and it is more the same size as the lilac watch, a tad bigger maybe. So, my advice would be if you have a larger wrist like I do, choose the white, or lilac. A bit smaller, choose the pink. I have the silver watch on back order, I am hoping they are smaller for my 3 small wristed Aunties.
I loved the watch. However, it kept turning sideways on my wrist and falling off of it really easily, so I had to return it. I guess it'snot made for my wrist, because my husband put it on his wrist, which is bigger and more round and it fit him perfectly, but not me. I had to return it. I will wait until Honora brings back this watch with a stretch bracelet, then I will be able to wear it. Please, Honora, bring the other design back. I really really really want this watch!!!
White - way too big, other colors ok
I love the silver and pink and black, however I have ordered and returned the white one twice now. When I first got it, it seemed used, like someone with a larger wrist had worn it and returned it. It was just way too large for my size 8 wrist. Next one that came, same issue. Too large and did not have any of the plastic coverings, the pin you pull to activate the time, the Honora tag you must remove before wearing, etc. . Again, I think they sent me one that had already been worn and returned as too large. Love the white one but it needs to be made smaller so it won't fall off. The other colors are just fine so I don't get what the issue is for them to make the white the same way.
I have several other Honora pieces and this most recent one is as classy and gorgeous as my other pieces. I wore it for the first time yesterday and received several compliments on it.. Once you try Honora you will be hooked.
Beautiful but small
Was thrilled when I opened the box. The black pearls were so lovely and you can see the quality of the piece but even on my average wrist the gap in the back was too wide and I knew it could slip off my wrist very easily. I just didn't want to risk it so sent the watch back. I would recommend this to anyone with a very slender wrist. Maybe add a few more pearls and make the band longer so it securely wraps around. Even if it added to the cost it would be worth it.
Two different sizes
I ordered two of these watches. One in white and one in silver since I couldn't decide. I was so excited when they arrived. I tried on the white one first. It was beautiful. The problem is that is is huge and I can not bend it to fit. I almost didn't open up the silver watch, but happy I did. The silver watch fits perfectly, it is much tighter than the white. Still not sure which color I prefer, but either way the white will have to go back, not sure if I will try and reorder to get one that fits like the silver. Quality control is everything!!! I love my Honora pearls and I have a lot, but the products need to be consistent.
