I'm a huge fan of Cartier watches, having already owned 3 others prior to making this purchase. I was a bit concerned about the size of the women's due to previous reviews but as it turns out, I'm really pleased with the size. I'd call it a mid-size which is always my preference. I found it easy to adjust the strap length and the look is very unique to other sports watches with the stainless inserts. I get a lot of compliments when wearing it. I'm really pleased with my purchase and love that Amazon continues to stay competitive in pricing fine watches. By the way, even though you may not pay for overnight shipping, Amazon ships their higher priced watches overnight, probably due to the concern in getting it to you quickly. If you are teetering at all on purchasing, I'd say "go for it"! I couldn't be more pleased that I did.

I bought the watch and after a month of use, the watch just stopped. I called Amazon and they said batteries are not under warranty so I am responsible for changing it(~$60 charge). And, hopefully, it is just the battery and not another more complicated issue. For next time, probably it is a better idea to buy these expensive items in a more specialized store.
