5.0 out of 5 stars If you're wondering whether it fits on a small wrist..., December 21, 2010
This review is from: Swiss Legend Women's 20050-WWSR "Karamica Collection" Stainless Steel Watch with White Ceramic Bracelet (Watch)
Fit:
I brought this watch to a watch repair shop and had it resized to fit my 5.5" wrist. Took the guy about an hour to get the job done. At first he took out 6 pins but found out it was too tight on me. With 4 pins removed (and 4 remaining), this watch now stays nicely on my wrist (with enough room for my little finger to slip in), and doesn't turn due to the size of the face and the clasp.

Appearance:
The watch looks better in person than in the photos. The ceramic band is very lustrous and "creamy"-looking. Fingerprints and grease get onto it easily though, but can easily be cleaned off. The MOP dial consists of 2 parts - a circle at the center, and a disc around it that is slightly more raised than the circle. The hour hand moves in the circle, the minute and second hands which are both higher than the hour hand hover over both the circle and the raised disc. I hope you get what I mean, because if you can see it, it is really interesting. The 2 MOP colors are also different for the piece I have - the circle is almost colorless (just cream/ivory), and the disc radiates in mainly red and green, if you view it from the right angle. This gives a sort of contrast between the center and the disc, I'm not sure if this was deliberately matched, or simply random, so each piece might be different.

Another thing - The back of the case on my piece is made of ceramic at the center, not fully stainless steel like in the pic from Amazon. I guess I just like it better :)

UPDATE 1 DEC 2011:
I have owned this watch for a year now and I can tell you how well it holds up. I wear it 5-7 days a week (that's almost everyday!) and it has accompanied me to the pool, the beach, snorkeling and even a hot spring. Some time ago it sustained a few small scratches on the band at the back when I fell on a hard rough street pavement and instinctively used my forearm to brace myself against the impact. I did not see the scratches immediately after the fall as they were quite faint and you had to look closely at certain angles, and I was too concerned about if it had been damaged or if it would suddenly shatter if I gave it a shake. Neither. This watch is still working perfectly well. This is impressive considering how hard I fell (I literally flew forward about 1 or 2 metres away from where I tripped, my friend who was with me was so shocked and astonished and we kept laughing afterward about how far I "flew"!). However dirt and grit do tend to get into the scratches and make them more obvious as time goes by, so I have to give it a good scrub once in a while. But this incident just showed me how well built my watch is and I love it even more now :)
