Judith Ripka Stainless Steel Chronograph Textured Watch with Diamonique
Very Nice Watches!!
I have all three colors of this watch. I love them. Judith, I completely agree with the other ladies about a two-tone version of this watch. I would love a silver and gold one, but silver and rose would be really nice, too!!
This watch is soooooo classy. It looks like solid genuine gold and keeps impecable time. It is stylish and I am going to order it in silver and the rosetone as well.
I had been eyeing this watch for months and finally decided to order in in Stainless a few weeks ago. My watch arrived today and all I can say is wow!!! I love this watch and it is so much nicer than I thought it would be. I have been wearing my Ebel watch for the past 29 years, and kept thinking when it finally dies, I won't have a watch, because I hate everything. Well this watch is a stunner!!! I would love to see it in two tone stainless/yellow gold.
I purchased this watch on a whim after seeing it on the QVC website. Ordered it in the silver tone in small and couldn't be more pleased! It is OUTSTANDING! I remember Lisa Robertson once said "when you see a woman wearing a classy pair of earrings and a nice watch - that is a woman who knows she's arrived!" Well, this watch will scream out "I've arrived!" It is just so unbelievably classy and stylish. Mostly, it is the kind of timepiece people will look at and admire you for wearing it because when you put this watch on, it will speak volumes about who you are. Run - don't walk and order this watch now!
Just what I been looking for!
I've been looking for an boyfriend style watch for the longest. My search is over! This is such a beautiful watch. It has the expensive, classy and trendy look all in one. Although I will say that it is very high gloss...it's OK I can deal with that. I purchase the yellow tone, but prefer the sliver tone more (sold out). But when I received my yellow tone watch and open the box, I knew it was a keeper. It's BOLD! And personally for me sometime boldness is needed in my life. I just simply adore this watch!!
This watch looks cheap looking. The texture in the watch band makes the watch look cheap. I wasn't aware that the band was not smooth. The color is too bright. The only part that was ok was the face of the watch.
I am sorry that I spent just about $17.00 in postage coming and going to be so disappointed. Postage is expensive just to look at an item.
Twice As Nice
I purchased this watch in stainless back when it was a TSV, and I absolutely loved it. I wear mostly white gold and the watch complements my pieces nicely. I also love the size and style of this watch, it suits me perfectly. Recently, I purchased a beautiful rose gold band with diamonds and decided I wanted a watch to accompany the ring. Naturally, I immediately went to my "go to" and headed to QVC. So, now I own this beautiful watch in rose and couldn't be happier. Girls, you'll just love it and I cannot recommend Judith Ripka enough and QVC is the only place to shop!!
Judith and Diamonique, what's not to love...
I was sooo looking forward to receiving this watch! I kept checking the mailbox! Then it finally came... BUMMER ! I couldn't get the watch time to set. My husband got it set .Next morning, it was 2 hrs. off! I kept setting the time, it never moved! No second hand mvmt, nothing. So disappointed. Besides this problem, the color of the silvertone, is way to bright. Not the color of the expensive watch I was expecting. This is going back for a refund. I will go to my jeweler for my next watch purchase! Should have listened to my gut instinct on this one. Not normally a watch purchaser from here. Sorry JR! You need new quality control
Too Over the Top
I purchased this watch for a milestone birthday gift for myself. I wore the watch but there was something not quite right--perhaps like the other reviewer stated it is the color of the "yellow gold". I love Judith's pieces as she is great with all the details, I felt this particular watch was overdone for my taste. Sadly, back it goes.
One of my best purchases.. Beautiful! You will not be disappointed.
If You Like Obvious Costume Jewelry...
I ordered this watch in the yellow. I own the Judith Ripka 18" rolling necklace in silver and diamonique and I absolutely love that piece. Nice costume jewelry pieces add interest and polish to work attire. So, I was hopeful, based on the show assurances that the gold was a "buttery yellow", that the watch would be substantial looking. However, I find the gold finish is very metallic and not in a good way. It does not look like real gold. When I wore the watch next to my 18K gold wedding band from Cartier, the watch band looked like cheap costume jewelry. Not a $300 watch. More like a $30.00 watch. Add all those CZs on the bezel and the green cabochon: well, the watch is just too over-the-top. Frankly, the watches in the Bronzo line look more polished and refined at half the cost. Expensive isn't always better. Back it goes...
This watch is awesome! Not too heavy, but enough weight to know its made with quality products! I wear it everyday! One of my favorite QVC purchases!
