Jacqueline Kennedy Leather Strap Round Watch
I expected to love this watch but I am going to return it. The biggest problem is the cardboard-feel band. This can't be real leather. It is so stiff that the face of the watch sits up as if it is on poles. Doesn't matter where the watch is placed on wrist/forearm. The face, the case itself literally stands up in the air above the wrist/arm; it does not lie flat nor does it mold to the arm. Stiff as a board. The face of the watch is very nice, but I was looking for smaller case. For measurement reference that is not in inches/mm etc.: This case/face is at least size of a quarter. Whereas, I guess I'm still looking for a (round) watch face that is closer to dime size. Again, the face is beautifully done, (hence the 2 stars) and if that size is not too large/small for the buyer - you'd need to replace the cardboard/plastic band in order to wear it and appreciate the watch itself.
Lovely Classic-Style Watch
This watch is so much prettier in person, the pictures here don't do it justice. It's pretty enough to wear with jeans OR a night out and dressed up. Very durable too, as I am rough on watches. I wear mine even while cleaning my home...it just makes me feel pretty! Oh, and I am tiny, but this watch (the face) is not overwhelming on my skinny wrist...just the right size!
I have never been so disappointed in my life as when I opened up the box and saw this watch. It is NOT what you think it is. Very small face. Very skinny and thin band. Cheaply made. It looks like something you would purchase at a discount store. Not the elegant and classy big-faced, thick-banded watch that I thought I was purchasing and certainly not worth the price. I immediately returned it. I have been buying things from QVC for years and this is the first time that I have ever not liked something that I bought from them.
I have had this for a few years now and I must say out of the dozens of watches I own, this is my absolute favorite. You don't even feel like you have it on and it is so efficient and never lost time until the battery went dead. I do have to take it to a jewelry shop and have them replace the battery, but it still looks like the day I purchased it. I can wear it with my diamond rings or anything very simple like a gold band. It goes with everything. It is so light and well made, I never feel like after an hour or two that I want to take it off. It's classy just like the lady that owned it Jackie Kennedy.
Classic & Timeless!!!
Love the watch!!! The face is classic and polished. The leather strap is elegant and comfortable. The watch fits a size 6 - 6.5 wrist. Finally a watch for a small wrist that fits well. You could wear this watch with confidence that you will look polished and appropriate. The face is very nice and readable. Love the diamond accent. I've only had one Seiko and it did last a very long time so I'm hoping this one will do the same if not better. The trouble with my other Seiko was the stainless metal bracelet clasp broke and I didn't want to deal with replacing, since it had to go back to Seiko. This JBK Seiko has a leather strap which will be easy to replace whenever need be.
I have been searching for a watch for some time and when I opened this box I knew it was an instant keeper. Just the right size for my wrist which I wear a 7 to 7 1/2 for a bracelet and size of the dial is perfect. Easy to read without my reading glasses and keeps great time. A classy watch for the price. This would be great foe someone starting out in college to a senior citizen which I am one. A great everyday watch.
Beautiful Watch - Love it!
Searched high and low for 2 yrs to find an elegant but comfortable and fashionable watch I would be able to wear from work to evenings out. I had given up until I found the Jacqueline Kennedy jewelry collection on QVC. Phil Katz explained the history of the watch, and it looked PERFECT! I ordered the round watch as well as two bracelets from the collection.
Received my Jacqueline Kennedy round watch very quickly! Absolutely love it!! Excellent quality and very well priced! Classic design and perfect size! Arrived in a long, slender, elegantly-brushed burgundy jewelry case. Perfect, classy gift for wife or fiancé, maybe even a recent college graduate who wants to make a good impression during interview! Any woman from age 25 to 55 can easily see the elegance in this watch!
I also love the two bracelets I purchased from the Jacqueline Kennedy jewelry collection! They arrived in the same type of beautiful jewelry cases too! All of these would make such lovely gifts! Thank you!
I have always worn the same style watch, and this one fits all of my criteria. I need a leather long band, a round face with Roman numerals and gold bezel. Simple elegance. Oh! and I need a sweeping second hand. This has it all with the addition of a tiny diamond at 12 o'clock, which sets it off. So far, it has kept perfect time, and I just love it! It was also a good price--an added plus.
CLASSY COMFY WATCH!
I seldom do reviews...but this watch deserves a FABULOUS 5 star rating...don't hestitate to order. Not only is it classy, it's comfortable to wear. This was one of my BEST buys from QVC out of 100's of purchases....my jeweler was impressed as well!
I purchased this watch a few years ago & wore it practically every day. I always liked the way it look & felt on my wrist. But after a year it stopped working. I brought it to the jewelers and it will cost me $40.00 to fix it. Now it sits in my jewelry box. I haven't decided whether I want to repair it or not. For almost $70.00 I felt the watch should have lasted a lot longer than a year.
Sort of Lukewarm About it
The watch is elegant, but it was smaller than I thought it wold be. I had expected the face to be about twice the size it was. Also, in the photo, the leather band looked all brown. In person, there was a beige streak on half of the band pattern that detracted from its beauty. I wished I had researched it better.
Pretty and Comfortable
I didn't need this watch but it really appealed to me on air. I think that it is prettier in person. I love the size, weight and looks of it. Glad that I bought it.
