It was close to my birthday & my husband asked me what I wanted because he doesn't want to buy the wrong thing. So I had received an ad in the mail a few weeks ago that had this beautiful watch that I wanted. I thought I hardly get anything fancy for myself so I showed him the ad & he said I should go ahead & get it. So I ordered it online & it took a few weeks to come, way after my birthday. When it came I opened the box & there it was shining at me. It was beautiful! I like the fact that it has 8 diamonds on the face that adds to the sparkle & the mother of pearl dial. I like platinum jewelry so the stainless steel watch matches well. The watch is a bit big so I did have to go to a jeweler to have a few links removed. There is a date on the face in the #3 area & I noticed that the only thing that bugs me is that I do have to change the date on the watch because I was wondering how the watch would know what month we were on so it doesn't know if there is 30 days or 31 days to go to. Minor problem but, didn't realize that until I got it. I still love it though! Good practice for picking out my Rolex....eventually. Haha!
