Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exquisite. I bought this as a gift to myself..finally...because I had admired it for years. Very elegant and very French. The only surprise was that it needed so much sizing. I have a medium-size wrist, but had to take out all the links possible. I am not sure if another link could be removed. The instructions didn't indicate that was possible. It is still a bit loose. For someone with a tiny wrist, this could be a problem. A jeweler had to take the links out. I could not do it myself except for the largest one. So, I think the customer should be made aware of this sizing challenge. Otherwise, the watch is very beautiful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful online but unimpressive in person My mom really loved this watch when she saw it in the catalog. I looked online and thought it would be a perfect gift for her. However, I was really unimpressed when I received it in the mail in comparison for the cost of the watch. The band is rope! Beautiful and classy but the rope cheapens it. I would have rather have seen the band be a thin velvet. It's also entirely to large for her small wrist. Otherwise, she loves it. She is going to take it to a jeweler and see if they can doctor it up with a different band and one that will fit her. If we can't fix then she'll be sending it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very pretty -but only adjusts to fit a large wrist Very pretty watch.  Good price.  Keeps good time.  It reminds me of one I have that was my grandmothers.  That is why I bought it.  (grandmothers watch is very old and very pricey to fix.).   The MET watch, however, is made to fit  only a large to very large wrist.   The bracelet does have removable links to allow some adjustment, but even when I made the most adjustments possible, the band is still much too large. I took it to 2 jewelers for adjustment, both of whom said, unlike an authentic evening watch like m grandmother's, this band could not  be shortened. There was also no way for a jeweler to place a  safety chain. That means if the watch ever  unclips, it will just fall off.    To get the proper fit, my only choice would be to pay for a whole new band, which would mean I lose some 'bling' and lose the very pretty clasp.  I could also send it back and ask the manufacturer and hope they can shorten it (I plan to do that) but that is such a hassle!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very elegant and classy! My husband bought this watch for Christmas because I told him I’ve been wanting it for years. After reading the reviews I knew it was gonna be too large. My wrist measures around 6 inches. We ended up fixing it ourselves. It only took us a few minutes. Instead of taking off the extra links we took a couple of tiny screws out and cut off the extra rope from each side. We then sealed the part of the rope we cut with a lighter, put back the screws and now it fits perfectly. I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everyone thought is was expensive! Such a beautiful watch! When I wore it to my event every person though it was a very expensive piece. The one issue was the size. Although you can remove the links yourself the watch still sized to big. I had to go to a jewelry store. At first they said it could not be made smaller due to the cord. I told them to take off more links where the clasp was and that worked. It fit fine then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful watch The watch was a Christmas present and I have been enjoying wearing it ever since. The styling is just so beautiful---the type of design I like. The band was too large so had to take it to a jeweler for removal of the extra parts to make it smaller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have been looking for a watch to wear with black evening wear and this is a perfect selection. I do however have a very small wrist and even with taking the links out, the watch is still loose.
