5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant and Stylish Timepiece, December 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Raymond Weil Women's 9440-STG-97081 Parsifal Diamond Accented 18k Gold-Plated and Stainless Steel Watch (Watch)
Bought this from Amazon (Daily Deal) as a Christmas present for my wife. Arrived next day in a very impressive, large RW box (actually a box inside a box). Once wrapped, it will be impossible to tell there's a watch under all that packaging. Yes, the battery was dead (pretty sure this is an older, discontinued model, that must have been on a shelf for a while) and I've ready in other reviews that this happens. But $15 and a new battery later, I have an exquisite luxury watch that I can't wait to give my wife. And she won't have to change the battery again for a couple years.

--THE DISPLAY: Absolutely gorgeous mother of pearl (MOP) that is hard to fully appreciate without seeing in person. The light reflects in a myriad ways, mostly purplish hues, off the MOP dial The gold on the bezel, crown and band is light in color and adds elegance to the watch without distraction. The diamonds really pop in the gold settings. While not luminescent, the oblong triangle-shaped hands are thick and complement the rest of the gold well. I'm glad there is no second hand--it would only distract.

--THE CASE: This appears to be a very solid watch. It's thin but weighty and its smooth disk shape is very stylish. The dial window gently curves to form a small dome. Again, the bezel's color complements the rest of the watch and the notched pattern looks much better than the pictures, throwing off light from the 18K gold plate.

--THE CROWN: The blue sapphire jewel set into the crown adds a very elegant touch. It sits high enough to let light threw it, making a very nice statement.

--THE BRACELET: Again appears to be the highest quality. The gold plating doesn't extend around the whole way, but very few people will see the bottom side anyway. The links have high-quality screw fasteners (not pins) and the "RW" logo adorns the clasp.

Overall, this is the best purchase I've made in a long while (hopefully my wife will agree). And don't let your heart stop if the watch is dead on arrival--a new battery is all it probably needs.

Thank you for your feedback, sorry for my bad English... Does this watch have a serial number on the back of the dial? I'm afraid, that it's fake... warranty by Amazon or authorized service by .RW? I bought this watch from amazon in daily deal, like you, but i'm afraid, that i can't change battery in Russia, retaining warranty...
Thanks a lot for your answer.

There are a couple numbers on the case back, but not sure if one is the serial number or just the model number. These are NOT fake. The warranty is from Amazon, not RW, since Amazon is not an authorized seller but any watch shop or jeweler can change the battery for a couple bucks. Good luck.
