Rated 1 out of 5 by MJOB Not a good purchase.
I really liked the look of this watch and purchased it so I would have a nice watch when I was getting dressed up...I have never owned a watch that cost more than $20. The watch arrived and looked great and felt nice on my arm with one exception the clasp was too big for the bracelet and got caught in things opening it. The third time I wore it, it opened and this time I did not hear it fall off my wrist so I no longer owne my $100+ watch. I would not purchase again because the same thing will happen until the design of the clasp is changed.

I have to say this is one of my favorite pieces. My Pandora and Chamillia charms fit with no problem. I have many compliments on this watch. Definitely a keeper!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by PortTownsendWa Some thoughts on the adjustable bracelet watch
Received this today. I purchased two Murano glass beads to start my collection, too. The watch mechanism itself is pleasantly weighty. The crystal (glass viewing area) of the watch is made in a bubble shape to magnify the numbers on the watch dial. The dial shows 12, 3, 6, and 9 numerals with dots for the other hours between them. There are no minute hash marks. There is a silver sweeping second hand. I am farsighted and do find I need my glasses to read the time which is fine. It comes with a battery already installed and you remove a little piece of plastic to turn the side knob to set the time. I pressed in on the side knob after setting the time and the second hang kicked off immediately. It has been keeping time fine since.
You can unscrew two bead-shaped connectors to expose the rope ends on either side of the watch so you can thread the beads onto the rope before reattaching the end connectors. I decided to switch the position of the two unscrewed connectors as I am right handed and found it a little easier to hold the clasp open with my right hand while hugging the watch to secure it around my wrist. Once I put a Murano bead on each side, I noticed the bracelet watch was heavier. I believe if I threaded three or four more beads on each side, it was would be quite heavy, but attractive. I might remove the beads sometimes and just wear the watch "plain" with the silver colored ropes on each side for a nice look.
Big note: after I ordered this "adjustable" one, I saw another sterling bead bracelet watch on QVC.com that was identical except it was noted "for larger wrists." I have a medium to large wrist I believe and found this adjustable one just fine. Just note the length and measure your wrist before ordering I'd suggest. I am wearing it on the loosest ring, but noticed that it tends to rotate downward with the weight of the watch mechanism. I tightened it a couple of loops, and it has less rotation so the watch stays face up more.
I hope this is helpful to other shoppers. I have not had any problems so far with the connecting beads on the ropes coming unscrewed and opening up the bracelet. I am pleased with the purchase.

I ordered this from QVC so I would have a watch to put my Pandora charms on. They fit just fine, I love it, and I get a lot of compliments on it.

I bought this last Christmas as a gift to me - I wanted a nice sterling watch. I also bought one of these for my daughter when she graduated from nursing school. Unfortunately, she doesn't seem to be a fan of charm bracelets, but that's not a problem with the product itself.This is pretty with the beads on it and I get so many compliments when I wear it. Just yesterday a co-worker asked me if it was P******. I said no, I got it from QVC and I love it! She said she thought a watch to display the European charm beads was a great idea. The watch itself works well. I haven't had any problems and it keeps good time. I just need to get more beads LOL!
Rated 3 out of 5 by mtmomma Difficult to read time
Face curve makes it difficult to read time. Question if watch was a previous return, battery was allowing watch to be already working when received. Returned.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Jennifer113 My Troll Beads Do Not Fit
I thought that Prerogatives pieces were designed to be compatible with all other major brands of beads, but my Troll beads will not fit over the threaded end caps. I'm so disappointed because the watch is otherwise lovely. Since a large potion of my bead collection are Troll, this has to go back.

I love this watch. I have to have a watch on every day, but wanted something that looked more like a bracelet and this definitely fit the bill. It looks great with my other charm bracelets. I have not had any trouble with the ends falling off. They screw on and seem very secure. I don't change the beads so maybe if I did they would get looser. Anyway, would have given this 5 stars but I do find it hard to put on. Thank goodness for my bracelet helper! Otherwise, I would highly recommend this product.
