Couldn't resist

I already owned the same watch with rose gold accents, and owned a different watch with a silver case, but this watch looked too tempting to not to get it. And I don't regret my decision

I liked this wristwatch very much!

I like simplicity of the dial and the color of the second hand of this wristwatch (vermilion) very much. Not deep red, but a vermilion one was good in particular. It's flexible and the belt is also very easy to use to be steady. It's pleasant to think which wristwatch to buy next.

Great look

It's good if you want a nicely tuned watch. The glass has a nice fish bowl effect. The plain grade school face is just what I wanted

But we believe that qualities like honesty and transparency are desperately needed these days.

Sapphire glass

Sapphire glass is the number one component that luxury watches have in common.

It is scratch resistant and highly durable. Sapphire glass is available in the $4-$15 range. The price is determined by the hardness of the glass. Harder glass is more expensive to cut because the cutting blade is a diamond.
