Judith Ripka Stainless Steel Chronograph Textured Watch with Diamonique
I just got my chocolate watch today. It is beautiful! Nice size so I can actually see the time ( over 50 eyes!!), but not too big that it looks like a man's. I also have the rose and sterling. Perfect watch. FYI the second hand is the 2nd circle of the three in middle. I returned a couple thinking mine was defective. Any watch I have ever owned was the third hand. Other than that I love it.
Too Expensive to Not Work
The second hand on this watch stopped working. Very disappointed. Too expensive a watch to not work.
I've had this watch now for about a year. I love it. I'm stopped each time I wear the watch. I have it in rose gold. When I tell them it's by Judith Ripka, they think of her couture line.
Ripka Goes to the Dark Side
I have owned this watch in the silver version for a couple of years and get compliments on it every single time I wear it. In my opinion, this watch is perfection. It is heavy, but not too heavy. It is a larger faced watch, but not too oversized. When I noticed Judith had added new colors of black and chocolate on this watch, I had to try out the black. All I can say about it is that it is absolutely gorgeous. The black spinels surrounding the face of the watch are so well done and so sparkly, and the mother of pearl face is the prettiest I've seen on the watch in a long time. The fit in the small version is spot on and hugs my 6.25 inch wrist perfectly. If I was a lover of neutrals and brown clothing, I would certainly be bringing the brown version home to me as well. I highly suggest you give this new black version a try. I have fallen in love with it and you might too!
Such a lovely piece of jewlery for my collection! Very heavy very elegant yet still modern! I wear it everyday to the office!!!
Very pleased with the appearance and function not to mention the price. Bought the rose gold and color is warm and appealing.
Not 100% satisfied
I loved the watch and got many compliments on it. However, the clasp kept popping open. I felt that a watch that costs that much money, should not have any issues so I sent it back.
Minute Hand Problem
This is the 4th one of these watches I have had. I love the watch so much that I decided to keep it even though the minute hand has not worked on the last 3 watches I have received. Other reviews stated the same problem. The 1st. watch was missing the saphire in the stem. The 2nd. watch worked fine for about 3mo., then the minute hand stopped working. The 3rd. and 4th. watches the minute hand failed to work when I received them. I'm afraid to send this one back...afraid the next one will have a defect. My watch keeps accurate time; however, the minute hand does not function. Others should know about this problem. Hope Judith reads this, and has the problem corrected. Love this watch. Have a gold Rolex, and this is my silver Rolex. Really like to wear it more.
I bought 2 of these - silver and gold tones. This is a heavy watch with a wide/thick band/bracelet. If it didn't have cubic zirconia, men would wear it. It also catches on my arm hair, which hurts, being so large and stainless steel. However, it looks really good and reflects a lot of light. The price tag is too high on it though, especially since it only has 3 ATM water resistance (can't wear it in the shower). If you like a large metal watch, and don't care about the lack of water resistance in a $279 watch, you will like it.
Judith Ripka Watch
Best watch ever! I get more compliments on this watch then any other. To me it is a piece of jewelry. I love it!
No problem yet... PERFECT..
Just got last week .. so glad I changed the size last minute as I'm usually a 71/4 bracelet so decided go with "small" just perfect fit... the color is awesome.. the quality is there 100% .. beautiful packaging. The key is to keep nice looking dont put perfume, chemicals, ect on medal some people put "wear off" unless you rough with jewelry I think this should be fine. If it does wear I'll change my review.
Great watch!!! Love the size, patina, features... it's classy, has a bit of flashy and is just as I wished... I am so happy with this watch. I would definitely recommend. It's not too big (though I wouldn't have minded a bigger watch - I have big wrists...) it looks great though - and I had to return and reorder. I thought I needed the "large"... and I didn't!!! Would highly recommend!
