Judith Ripka Stainless Steel Chronograph Textured Watch with Diamonique
On the fence
I have been looking at this watch for years and finally got it in silver during JR's last visit when it was at a special price with easy pay. It is an absolutely beautiful watch! The challenge is that it is very large and HEAVY. I wore it for a few hours and was so aware of it the entire time (not in a good way). I finally took it off and switched to another boyfriend watch that isn't quite as large. I have a smaller wrist but even w/ the size small it still overpowered me. This watch would be perfect if there was a scaled down version available, about 20-25% smaller. I don't want to return it but unfortunately, I will probably have to.
Not a big fan of DMQ in general (don't care how much the hosts harp on the fact that it looks like the real thing; it looks cheap and crystal like), I have been watching this watch come and go in many of JR's events. Finally broke down and ordered both silver and gold. Wow, I forgive the DMQ presence, this watch is so beyond gorgeous and high end. I have a collection of JR's pieces, and this watch is bar none one of her best designs to date. Got to get one for my mom too now :).

Searched forever for a gold tone watch. The color on most is so brassy and looks cheap, even spending $200+. This is my first Ripka purchase, but will not be my last! This watch is beautiful & classy, just like the designer. Looks like a lot more than the price. Thank you
Go to watch!!!
I am lucky enough to have several very expensive watches that now spend their time in my jewelry cabinet because this has become my go to watch. First purchased this in the gold tone, now also have the rose, and am on advanced order for the chocolate. Just the perfect size, perfect amount of bling….just plain perfect!!!

I received this watch in black, OMG is it beautiful, I have wanted this watch for a very long time, and have gone back and forth on which color. When I saw the black I picked up the phone right away! I am on waitlist for the black bracelet/ring, that was shown that day.
On the second hand problem, I might suggest that you go back and start the directions over again, it happened with this watch and I started over and it worked right away.
Just a brief note to say I have JR's first watch, silver with the hearts, I have worn it constantly for many years. I have a small collection of her jewelry, and love her as an artist and as a person!
I hope she does a lot more black, I really like it!
Go to watch for party's ,play,work,fun u name it. Just wonderful good size date and I can see it in the evening . Keep up the good work girls.

Everyone is saying that the second hand does work. IT IS NOT SUPPOSED TO WORK. The large hand that is the second hand on most watches is not the same on this watch. My only complaint t is a little hard to tell the time because everything in the face is the same color, other than that this is a beautiful watch.
I was so excited when my new Judith Ripka watch arrived. I followed the enclosed directions to set the chronographs when i noticed that the minute hand did not turn. I was so disappointed knowing that i had to send the watch back and reorder a new one. I hope that the new watch will actually work.
It could have been to poor packing for shipment.
It's a beautiful time piece. Ordered the average love the way it fits. When i first set the time
the second hand didn't work. I thought maybe the battery was dead. That was not the case. I handed it to my daughter and she started playing with the buttons and wala the second hand started working. It was a case of operator error. It is a heavy watch but when you put it on your wrist it's not heavy at all. So glad I purchased this watch money well spent!
Got this for and early bday present for myself I couldn't wait to wear it today!!!
Love the chronograph. The second hand isn't a second hand but rather the hand for the stop-watch function. One button is to start the stop watch, the other button is to auto set it back to 12:00.. It doesn't move from 12:00 unless you engage the stop watch. The second hand is the top right round dial~!! (For those thinking their "second hand" is broken).
I am in love with this watch... but am sadly having problems with the face being white, pearl and silver, all the light colors are making it a little difficult seeing the actual time. I don't want to return it, and will give it adequate time to see if it's a continuing problem. It's a great fit right out of the box. I have a smidge under a 7" wrist and the medium fits perfectly. It's a gorgeous watch... I really do love it! I recommend it highly. :)
Beautiful watch to wear
Luv this watch. Unfortunately, the second hand doesn't work on the watch I received in the mail. I purchased another watch (Bronzo watch) and the SAME THING: second hand doesn't move.
