J146612 - Kirks Folly Unforgettable Average Fairy Night Light Watch
Batteries to expensive (TWO)
I love and have been pleased with all products purchased over the years. I wore this watch a lot and my surprise came when I had to buy new batteries. It is most unusual as it takes not one but TWO linthium batteries which are quite expensive. You can almost buy a new watch. After readiing some of the reviews I must agree the watch band is to tight.
Learned a lesson
The watch is beautiful but the band is too tight. Need to have options to buy extra links for band. Crystals came out , need to be able to get extra crystals.
Glitter with dependability!!!I
I have had this watch for several years and wear it 24/7. I'm a fairly small/short person but this watch doesn't overwhelm me. In fact I bought an extra one last fall just in case the current one ever wears out. I t takes a beating around horses and outdoor work and keeps like new.
Purchased this for my mom who is a nurse and it is very beautiful watch, she can see the numbers clearly which is important in her line of work. 2 things keep it from being a 5 star for me: we had a lot of trouble figuring out how to set the date (no instructions came with it), and it does seem to be a little small stretch band but fortunately for my mom she is very petite bone so this is not a problem for her, but i see where it could be for others.
Love Love this Watch
My favorite watch. I wear more often than any other I own. I do have a small wrist.
Darn it! It's so beautiful too!
sigh...I love this watch. Alas, the band is way, way too small.I wear a size 7 bracelet - even on a "swell" day. I tried the jar/bottle trick with no luck. I was thinking maybe a champagne bottle, but was afraid that might damage it for someone else. So, with great sadness, this beauty will be returned. I would recommend this as a gift, but only if recipient has a tiny wrist. If the band was better proportioned I would give this watch 5 stars.
WAY TOO TIGHT!
I was so happy when I received this watch. It is very attractive, and the light feature is a great bonus. HOWEVER, I cannot believe the average-size wristband could fit anyone but those with a tiny wrist! I wear a 7" bracelet with ease, and this wristband was so tight my fingers started to swell! I really wish this watch had fit properly, but I must sadly return it.
I ADORE this watch!
This is my second review on this watch. I have at least 30 watches, but this is my favorite. I wore this watch for 3 or 4 years, wearing it more than all the other watches combined, and I finally broke the band, just recently. This was not because the watch was defective; it was because I simply wore it out! I am ordering a second one, I like it so well. The first year I owned the first one, I, too, lost two of the stones. I contacted the designer and she graciously sent me a little packet of extra stones. I used gemstone glue to place them back in and I never had another problem.
I love this watch because it goes with all of my jewerly, white or yellow gold. It has glitz, it has practicality because of the stretchy band (easy to come off and on), it is comfortable, it is easy to read, and I love how you can read it at night (I wore it to bed!) OH, and you don't have to worry about it getting a little wet! I wore it cleaning up the kitchen and doing housework all the time. You can slide it a bit up your arm. I just LOVE it!
Buy this watch if you are thinking about it!
finally a watch that fits my wrist
I purchased this watch right after Christmas of last year. I got it rather quickly. I was so surprised how beautiful it was. I set out to wear it immediately, Unfortunately, the night light didn't work, but I wore it anyway to church that week. I had so many compliments on this watch, the fact that the light didn't work didn't seem as important as I thought it would when I ordered it. I was disappointed to the fact that I really would have liked to have the light when I needed it to see in the dark, but when I checked on line to see the reveiws, it was already sold out, I never returned it because I loved the look of this watach too much.. It went from very dressy to very casual depending on my choice of clothes. Even though I would have liked the night ligt, overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase. It keeps excellent time and I continue to have compliments on it.
I love, love, love the face of this watch. It is exquisite. Great quality, heavy, weighty piece. The band, however, I was not too fond of as the double row of crystals near the face was too much bling for my taste. I work in a conservative office environment and thought it would be perfect if toned down and given a more attractive band. I replaced it with a solid silver band, and it's perfect now. Just the right amount of sparkle. I can't stop looking at it!!!

This is a beautiful watch, but after having it for several months, I have lost seven of the crystals that surround the dial and it's quite noticeable. I still get many compliments on the watch, but I'm not real fond of the band, it looks kind of cheap in my opinion.
Well worth every penny
I received this watch for Mother's Day and I can't say enough about it! I just love, love, love it! It does seem to run small but for me that's great because I have a small wrist. That was my one concern that it would be too big and it fits perfect! A great watch for a great price! I have other Kirk's Folly items and I love all of them!
