Hard to Find Small Case Watch
Smaller watch cases are often hard to find these days. I have tried the larger watches that are popular now and have several in my collection. But I have found I still prefer a smaller, more feminine case, and, particularly, an oval shape. I have had Bulova watches in the past and had good luck with them. I like the two-tone look that can be worn with any color jewelry, although the contrast between the yellow and white metal could have been improved with a richer yellow tone. The face has all 12 Arabic numerals, which I like. However, the gold numerals against the white background of the dial do not provide a lot of contrast for easy reading, particularly with the small face. Black numerals might have provided better contrast but would have, perhaps, made the watch appear less dressy. The band was way too big for my 5 1/2 inch wrist, so I shorted it to fit with my watch tools. Unfortunately, the biggest problem with this watch for me was that the links on either side of the case do not articulate, but are stiff. So, with a 5 1/2 inch wrist, there is a stiff section of about 1 1/2 inch across the whole top of the wrist. The watch would look better on my wrist and be more comfortable if those links would articulate so that the watch would curve around the wrist. If you have a larger wrist, it might not matter as much. This watch will require a battery replacement. Overall, a nice, small oval case two-tone dress watch.

The stock photo doesn't do this watch justice
I just received this watch today and I must say it's more beautiful in person. Perfect for me, since I have small wrists. The watch has little arrows on links that can be removed if the watch is too big, length-wise. Overall, a great buy, and great quality! Thank you QVC!
