Joan Rivers Coin Edge Woven Leather Strap Watch
I am very happy with the receipt of my black watch. The silver and gold markings on the dial make it possible to wear with gold and silver jewelry. It is a boyfriend watch with a large face. I have small wrists and don't feel overwhelmed by the size. Highly recommend this watch.
LET' TRY THIS AGAIN!
I ordered this watch with great expectations. It caught my attention b/c of its appearance, something different (coin-edge dial and numerals in silvertone&goldtone). The watch was beautiful! However, upon closer inspection, I discovered something that upset me and called customer service to voice my frustrations. The person I spoke to seemed very apologetic and assisted me as to options to consider in correcting the problem. I know this review may not be very helpful to some but I'm choosing my words carefully. hence the title. The first one wasn't posted(needless to say it wasn't favorable just honest). And even after all this, I still like the watch and may even purchase in future???
Loved the red watch... very classy and have had quite a few comments. The red is a good red... not orangey. It is heavy but that's wha I like about it.
Too Big For Me
I really wanted to like this watch but after 2 days of wearing it, I was unhappy with its enormous size (more like a clock than a watch) and heavy weight. Years ago, Joan Rivers offered an east-west style with a woven strap; it was perfect -- how I wish QVC would bring it back!
I have several of Joan's watches. This one is a real beauty. Very stylish and would definitely recommend it. Love the gold numbers although I will probably wear this with my silver jewelry.
I LOVE THE TWO TONE NUMBERS, THE RICH WOVEN LEATHER & HAVE BLACK BUT NOW MAY BUY MY FIRST WATCH WITH COLOR BECAUSE I LOVE HER PURPLE LEATHER!!!
AN ABSOLUTE HIT
THIS WATCH IS EVERYTHING JOAN SAYS IT IS. I PURCHASED THE RED FOR A CHRISTMAS GIFT AND NOW I WANT ONE FOR MYSELF. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT INCLUDING THE LARGE READABLE FACE AND WOVEN LEATHER STRAP. I AGREE THE LEATHER IS A BIT STIFF BUT SOME LEATHER LOTION AND/OR REPEATED WEAR WILL SOFTEN IT AS WITH ALL LEATHER PRODUCTS. YES, IT IS A SUBSTANTIAL PIECE AND MAKES QUITE THE FASHION STATEMENT.
New to Joan's Watches
This is my second watch from Joan. The first one I got was the gunmetal/rose watch to wear with my rose metal stuff. I don't like crystals on watches (not a "bling" person), so I really love the appearance of this watch. The face is a little larger than the other boyfriend watches I have (Joan and Lee Sands--it's also thicker than any watch I own), but once I got used to it, it's fine. My only issue is that the leather is way too stiff. When you first put it on, it does not conform to your wrist. That makes it very difficult to fasten tight enough. I had to take it off and roll the straps to loosten them up enough to be able to make it tight enough, then mash the straps around my wrist so that the face would lay against my wrist--and I don't have a tiny wrist, either. I use the 4th hole from the top of the strap. But it's pretty enough to be worth the effort. I really love the alternating metal colors of the numbers. Make more without crystals, Joan.
nunbers are easy to see
finally a watch that has easy to see numbers !!! ... and a nice big face too... if your wrist is very petite this may be too overbearing for you.... as for the strap being stiff ...it will soften up with use as leather usually does... love my watch and for me it is perfect... note the 2 tone colors on the numbers so it can be worn with white or yellow gold jewellery.....what a great idea Joan. !!!!
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
After seeing presentation,kept coming back in my mind and finally ordered it-is a beauty-esp with gold and silver accents-got black strap-have been waiting for the perfect one for me and here it was-thanks Joan !!!
This watch has a lovely face and bezel, not too much bling like most. I was so pleased seeing it in the box. But trying to wear it, I found it too big a face for my wrist, and the band was thick and uncomfortable. If the band had been thinner and more pliable, I might have kept it. I got it in black and it really was very attractive. I hope Joan makes some with slightly smaller faces and less stiff bands. I can understand a man wearing it on a big wrist like the previous reviewer.
I just received this watch in black and wore it to a dinner at the local country club. "I can tell, you're wearing Joan." said an attendee. Yes, this is my second watch by Joan and I'm a guy. This watch is pure elegance. I love it. Thank you, Joan!
