I kicked myself for years for not purchasing a gold watch when they were affordable. Saw this and it's beautiful! Mother of pearl face, I love it! clearance price Yay! The first watch I received was tarnished all over. I returned for a replacement. It was tarnished as well. I decided to see what would happen if I take the liquid silver jewelry cleaner on a toothbrush and brush the tarnish. BAM! It removed the tarnish and I have a beautiful precious metal 18k watch.
The silver jewelry cleaner is the kind that comes in a silver plastic jar. The directions say to drop the jewelry in for 10 seconds then lift out of container with basket provided. Now I'm not about to submerge my Veronese jewelry like I do my silver. An old toothbrush dipped in the cleaner brushed on tarnish spots worked fast. I did have to scrub 1 stubborn spot a couple times gently. It didn't scratch and the watch looks fabulous. I think the weight is just fine. Not too heavy but not too light.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Taki Great Looking Timepiece .... but watch out!
This is a beautifully designed watch -- perfect size, shape and stunning design. I have been searching for something similar for a very long time. I was thrilled to finally find my dream watch, but much to my disappointment I now have to return the second watch. My first watch arrived with a lot of tarnish on the watchband and rust on the underside of the watch. The rust/ discoloration would not come off. I exchanged the first watch and anticipated the arrival of #2, which also arrived with tarnish all over the watchband and also discoloration on the back. If this flaw occurs on a brand new watch that is boxed and sealed, what will happen after a few months?? Sadly, the second watch is going back. Poor quality control!
Rated 3 out of 5 by EUPHORIA47 Love the watch but...
When I saw this watch and the price, I knew it would be mine. I continue to love it, but it's too small for my wrist. I wish there were some kind of way that I could obtain an extra clasp. I love the round dial, the roman numbers, the color and especially the Mother of Pearl face! Very regretabally, I will have to return this watch. :(
Rated 2 out of 5 by you can do magic Not So Great
Hmmm, looked great on TV. I received this watch today and I must say, not so good. The watch was quite tarnished as if it had been sitting in the box, forgotten, for a loooonnnggg time. The box was torn through the entire backside. Feels just a bit lightweight for the money. Going back.
Rated 1 out of 5 by QB808 So diappointed -- Gold rusted, weird yellow color
I was so looking forward to receiving this watch. The style is nice and the idea of 18K over Sterling Silver (18K Clad) -- all you touch is 18K -- was very attractive. However, I paid $16.97 for the S&H and am going to pay another $6 for shipping it back. So disappointed -- the gold around the mother of pearl are all rusted. How can this be? My cheapest cold plated jewelry does not "rust" like this. I wish there had been some other reviews before mine to warn me about this to save me some money and troubles. In addition, the color is not really 18K gold color. I have many real 18K gold bangles and bracelets and this watch's color is off -- it's not 18K color; it's weird yellow. Hope this will help other people.
