Judith Ripka 3.80 cttw Diamonique and Stainless Steel Regent Watch
I first ordered the large and loved it but had an issue as it was not working. I took it to get a new battery and my jeweler said it wasn't the battery. I wasnt concerned because of QVCs awesome customer service. I have other Ripka watches in large and thought instead of sizing down I'd get a medium, but when I got it, it just fit and I realized I liked it loose like a bracelet. So, again, I returned it to get a large. I was in despair because once you see it, you don't want to lose it again. Now, I am settled and I am so happy. It sparkles from every angle. Thank you Judith. I love that the diamondique catches the light even under my wrist. I got the rose and it matches some of my real rose gold jewelry perfectly. I love the deployment clasp and don't want any watch without it. I liked the size of the face. I dont care for the super large face watches because I feel they are more trendy. Ive had a lot of compliments on it already. You must see it in person.
I purchased this watch in the rose tone and I have to say I was blown away at how beautiful it is. I ordered a small and had to have a link removed so they do run larger. I consider it one of my finer pieces of jewelry.
I purchased the rose and I love it. It's very elegant and classy. As always Judith Ripka does not disappoint. She makes the best watches ever!
Too much bling
I bought this in the silver. I thought I would love it, but found myself undecided after I actually saw it. I kept the watch, but almost never wear it. It's just too much bling! I don't like the band at all - just too ripkarized. Sorry I kept it:(
Beautiful watch, disappointing presentation
This is a beautiful watch. Ms. Ripka deserves 5 stars for the design. QVC deserves 1 star for sending used and returned watches as new. My watch had no protective covering on the face, band, or back of the watch. The watch was also running, no stem protector, don't know how long the battery has been running. That was really disappointing considering I paid full price thinking I was getting a new watch. I purchased an average size but it is really big, falls down on my hand, so I'm not even certain I was sent the correct size. The sizing really should be printed in the description. I haven't decided what to do, return it and take a chance on getting another used watch or take it to a jeweler for sizing and cleaning.
I think Ms. Ripka and I deserve better from QVC.
More presence than expected
Looks fabulous. Only problem too large face and bracelet width for my taste. I returned it!
CLASSIC & LUXE
I am not usually a big fan of watches - I am more of a bracelet girl. However, I wanted to try this classic watch silhouette, and I am happy I did. It has a great presence on the wrist, but is not too weighty. It fits true to size in the Average. Looks good on its own and with layers of bracelets. Appropriate for day to evening, casual to dressy. This will be a classic timepiece in my wardrobe, but what makes this watch so special are the Judith Ripka details - the gorgeous grey face, the beautiful signature texturing on all surfaces, the stunning use of the luxe Diamonique accents. Perfect!!!
Beautiful looking watch. I only wore the watch twice for a few hours and a stone is missing. I have had this same thing happen on other Judith pieces. Unfortunately it is going back.
Beautiful & Lady-like
I have the stainless steel version and it is just beautiful. Dressy and can be "uptown" when you need it to. Has the weight you look for in a designer watch.
People give my left arm QUICK second glances as I shop. Their expressions say it all.
Looks of Platinum and real diamonds. For me, an all the time watch.
Replaces the REAL yellow gold and REAL diamonds watch my husband gave me years ago.
I told my husband no more real diamonds, gold and platinum jewelry with Judith Ripka available for him.
Also, bought the 5 star diamond band which further enhanced my REAL engagement diamond ring.
Fits my very small arm perfectly for the first ever.
The most beautiful watch ever!
This watch is stunning! I ordered it in the siver-tone, average. It fits perfectly & I love the width & weight of the watch: not too big, not too small. The mother of pearl in gray (w/a bluish hint) on the face is eye-catching. Don't hesistate to order this watch!
Beautiful, but small way too big
This is a beautiful watch in appearance and weight. Because I just received it, I cannot speak to the accuracy of time/reliability. I am disappointed in the sizing of the watch, as I have a very small wrist [about 6-1/4"], and usually most small-sized watches fit very well, with just a tiny bit of drape. This one is so large that I'm wondering if the wrong size was sent to me [and it appeared to be a return, going by the packaging].
Other than the sizing issue, the silvertone that I ordered is gorgeous. For someone who has a more average wrist size, I'm sure the sizing would not be a problem.
