Judith Ripka Stainless Steel Chronograph Textured Watch with Diamonique
Such A Beauty
I bought this watch for myself as an early Christmas present. It is such a beautiful watch. Some reviewers claimed that it was too heavy but I found it to be just the perfect weight. I got the rose tone and the color is just right. I didn't have any trouble getting the chronograph to work, the watch came with good instructions.
This watch is very elegant and eye catching. The down fall is that the 2nd hand continues to stop working. I'm going to return it back in exchange for another one.
Fast delivery. Great price for amazing watch. I get compliments all the time on how gorgeous this watch is. Thank you QVC for making this watch available. I love Judith Ripka jewelry.........
Have Concerns about the Quality
The watch is pretty in gold tone. BUT IT’S VERY HEAVY….and the crystal is a 'sapphire mineral' combination? I put it on my wrist next to my TAG HEUER Formula One to compare and it’s twice as thick. And the JR watch crystal distorts when on an angle. Also, I can’t get the 2nd hand to work again. While looking through the manual and handling the watch to try and get the 2nd hand to work again, I decided I didn’t want to risk paying $295 for something inferior.
I had been eyeing this watch for a long time and finally got one in silver tone when it was on easy pay. I opened the box and my jaw fell open. It is beautiful. It is a substantial watch and so we'll done. Beautiful details like sapphire colored stem and pretty MOP face. As I wear it I love it more and more. Love looking at my wrist. Can understand why people buy more than one! Thank you Judith!
I have this in the silver, rose and yellow and I am waiting on the black. Next, I will try for the chocolate. This is a comfortable watch and it works well. Love the new black and chocolate colors. I have the rolling Diamonique bracelets for each of the gold clad watches and the silver and I have the black, Verona bracelet for the black as I already have another JR black watch, oval shaped with the black spinel surround and three additional straps ( a really, really attractive watch that is no longer offered, sad to say). I have to get the Verona earrings for the black now. ( also on wait list) I have plenty of JR earrings in the white, yellow and rose, so will now get the black and chocolate.
Right now, black jewelry is HOT. It goes well with my limited edition David Yurman renaissance cuff in black, which is terrific.
I wore it on my wedding day! 1yr ago tomorrow! Luv
One of my dear friends had this and every time that she wore it... I loved it more!
I bought it for myself as a Birthday present
Love love love

This watch is beautiful and very substantial. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I think the size runs big, I ordered the (S) and it's pretty loose on my arm. I took it to a jewelry store to remove one link but because the links are so big they said taking one out would make the fit too tight. Haven't decided if I'm going to keep it, hate to send it back because it is so pretty. Still contemplating. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind if the fit is a little loose.

This watch has replaced my very expensive timepiece. I alternate between this and the gold. I ordered both and am so glad I did. The Rose Gold and Black are next. The watch is extremely easy to set up, just read and follow the instructions. It's truly a magnificent piece for a very affordable price. Judith, you did it again! Even my husband, who is a collector of various luxury timepieces, says he wishes you would make one for gentleman! Now there is an idea! He would buy it immediately! Thank You Judith for bringing us beautiful, affordable jewelry. I wear your pieces, like you say, blue jeans to black tie, and I look and feel like a million dollars! And the compliments never cease!! I purchased with the Silver and the Gold Tone link bracelets, pair with my tennis bracelet and the watch... WOW! Ladies, go ahead and buy the watch! Yes it's big (I'm petite, 5ft) and it is just fabulous!! Glorious in either color. I often catch myself looking at it and just cannot believe the quality and affordability of this product!

I bought the rose JR chronograph watch and love the color, weight, and style. I have many pieces of Judith's jewelry and wear them daily. Pay special attention to the mechanics of the watch and how to set the time and date. Additionally, when you need a battery replacement, you will have to take it to a jeweler to remove the back, the disk holding the battery, and then their expertise in putting it all back together. I do so love this watch though!
I was uncertain about this purchase, not really needing a watch. When I opened it, I knew it was a go. It is brilliantly shiny, expensive looking, and heavy in a manageable way. I love the sheen of the pearl face as well as the blue button.
I am keeping this one. LOVE it. Received several compliments at work today.
