Bronzo Italia Roman Numeral Dial Bracelet Watch with Onyx Crown
It DOES turn colord
I received this yesterday. The underside of the band has a discoloration like a small oilslick. It isn't the 1st Bronzo watch that has done that.
Beyond beautiful and classy!!
It was love at first sight with this watch! I wasn't aware that this is a take on a Cartier watch, but I'm thrilled that QVC brought an affordable version of this watch for its customers. I'm over the moon with this purchase; I bought the white face version, because of the versatility and classic look. I don't mind the clasp choice, because sometimes I like to wear it tighter and the clasp gives me that option. Mostly, I wear it looser, so I'm happy that I have the option to alter the sizing. I admit I'm addicted to watches, but this is my favorite watch in my hefty collection! Try it, you won't regret this purchase!!
Beautiful in Bronze
I just received this today, I find it beautiful. I bought the all bronze, I wanted the one with the white face - but it was sold out.
The all bronze /rose color is beautiful and lady-like, no confusion of it being a men's watch, so I am extremely happy with this purchase.
I am a petite lady, very small wrist, took out two links - still a bit big - but nicely so.
I read a few of the reviews about the plastic coverings, I had one on the back - but not the face of the watch. But I don't see any issues or have any concerns.
As long as this watch continues to run, I give this 5 stars! Thank you for the boyfriend type watch at a price point that is affordable.
I find everything about this watch...wonderful!!!
After reading the reviews, I had to write one also. I am very pleased with this watch. Regarding the clasp, I have other watches from QVC with the same clasp. I have not had problems with any of them. I appreciate that I can take out a link or two without having to go to the jewelry store and getting it done. I took two links off this watch and it fits me the way I like for my watches to fit. The watch itself is beautiful.
Perfect, classy watch I wish the clasp was a nicer one.
I bought this with the white face because it is most like the Cartier Ballon Bleu. I understand that this watch can't be an exact replica of it and can only be "inspired" by that design BUT ... the thing that BUGS me is that the numerals on the right are actually HIDDEN UNDERNEATH the inward curve, i.e., Roman numeral III. That tells me this face was NOT designed specifically for this watch because, well, it makes no sense! and looks wrong! Look at an image of the Cartier and see how fantastically interestingly the face accomodates that inward curve design. So, OK, Bronzo Italia cannot do exactly that BUT ... if they designed a face specifically for this watch, they would have done SOMEthing more creative and more RIGHT for the design of this case. The price point of this watch is high enough that it's reasonable to expect that to have been done for this piece. That is a real design disappointment. :(
It is a heavy piece so be prepared for that.
It is large-enough but not too-large. I have a very small wrist and can still wear it even though I cannot wear most "boyfriend" watches because the case diameters are too large for me.
Even with popping out the 2 extra links, I still had to take it to a jeweler to have 2 additional links removed.
I Have Bronzitis!!!
I can't seem to cure myself from ordering Bronzo pieces!! Love them so much! This watch is my latest addition to my collection and my third Bronzo watch!! This one is big but not gigantic so I like the size a lot. The face is beautiful and very easy to read! I got the chocolate brown face and that color looks awesome with the rose bronze. I love the little keeper that protects the stem - very designer looking - in fact a designer that puts their jewelry in the gorgeous red boxes makes one very similar. Very cool that you can remove up to two links yourself, too. So convenient to not have to take to a jeweler for sizing.
This watch is beautiful and really does look like a Cartier Ballon Bleu. It has a nice weight to it but, as others have stated, needs a deployment clasp to truly finish it off. Upon reading the warranty card, I was a bit surprised that, after paying to ship and insure the watch, the company also requires a check for $20.00. Completely tacky. I suppose that's what I get for buying a replica.
This was nicer than I expected and looks great if it is the only piece of jewelry you are wearing. I ordered the brown face and it's beautiful. I would have preferred a brown pearl face. I own a couple brown pearl face watches and they are stunning. Anyway I'm happy with this one--is on the heavier side but it sure looks like an expensive timepiece and like the size of the case which is on the larger side. I also like the covered crown.
Beautiful Watch! Love it!
This watch is a knockout! Really looks like a high end watch and feels great on the wrist. Bought the rose face and am waiting on the brown coming in the mail. Very nice watch you will be happy if you order.
Simply put, this watch is not a "close to 200.00" watch.. Even if they had upgraded the band it still isn't the quality that the price calls for. I own several nice watches and this just isn't one. I loved the idea, I loved the face, but nothing else added up....even the box it came in was cheap.
i have been looking for a bracelet watch got it with the brown dial love it just the way it is.
