Purchased this as the ShowStopper and fell in love. The large dial makes reading the time easy and it's beautiful to look at
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A pleasant surprise!
By Diamond Di
from Grimsby, On
I was trying to decide whether to keep this watch as it's an investment, and after wearing it a few times and not receiving any comments, I was doubting my decision. But while wearing it in a restaurant in Toronto, a woman crossed the room and asked "Is that Ammolite in your watch?! It's gorgeous! I hope you don't leave before my sister can see it!". Well her sister was very impressed with it to! They were very knowledgeable about ammolite. I teased her that if I'd worn my ring, which is an east/west version of today's showstopper, she might have fainted.

Beautiful watch and uncomfortable
By Jen the Gem Lover
from Ajax, Ontario
I am not sure how to rate this. The ammolite is beautiful and what a wonderful option to showcase it. This is why it is so disappointing to have to return it.I wore this less than an hour and the dial kept digging into my skin... really hurt to wear it. I don't have particularly tiny wrists (just under 6.5 inch)... I would buy again if Korite comes out with a male and female version which perhaps would fix this issue.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Much improved from 2006-2007 watch version! Stem is easier to handle and the size of watch is more to my style. I just love this watch!

My husband very kindly treated me to this watch, as I have a "significant" birthday coming soon.I am not wearing it yet, but I was allowed to look at it to make sure that I really liked it. It is gorgeous, easy to read the classy Roman numbers and the ammolite looks like a miniature stained glass window, inspired by Marc Chagall, with all the beautiful colours that you hope for in ammolite. I like this large size, I have small wrists and I am vain enough to think that the size of this watch will emphasise the fact.

The watch arrived in a lovely box and my husband and I share this watch as the size is perfect to be used as a unisex watch. The ammolite mosaic has many colours and lots of blue and the ammolite is bright. The basic black strap goes with everything and does not distract from the ammolite. This is an original, special watch.
Not 4 me
from Deep River,Ontario
Very nice watch but I returned it as it was not exactly what I wanted. I found the face a bit big and it looked more like a man's watch. The ammolite was very colourful and the packaging was exceptional.Not "ooh lala" enough for me however to keep....
Practical colorful jewellery!
As soon as I saw the watch I had to compare it with the other ammolite pieces that I owned. The best was the flash of blue that highlighted the same colors in my ring. Wearing it at a dinner party (on the day it came)got a compliment from the hostess who could not take her eyes off my hands as we talked. I wave my hands a lot so the flashes of ammelite were highly visible so this wonderful watch will be seen and enjoyed for many years by all that view it.

Great watch but I have been waiting for someone to comment on the Roman Numeral IIII which should be IV. I noticed the mistake in the brochure which I received in the mail and was anxious to see the live presentation. Sure enough there was the IIII instead of IV. I can understand why Ken would not say anything but I can't believe no one has mentioned it since. I love the watch and it makes me smile every time I look at it. I can only hope this unique feature makes it increase in value. If I could afford to I would buy another. So everyone enjoy your extra special watch!
One Size not for All
There is no doubt this is a stunning display of ammolite which made it very hard to return. This watch design did not work for me and after wearing it for less than an hour the knob on the side gauged into my skin. Ouch... it hurt and left a sore...would be an impossible piece to keep based on the design. So disappointed as I don't have particularly 'tiny' wrists.... I hope that next watch is not unisex as I don't believe one size fits all... And aesthetically I do feel it would have suited me better if this was slightly smaller.
