Just steps from Venice's venerable Rialto bridge, you will find a workshop of decidedly modern women who use traditional techniques to create strikingly original designs. This new italian watch features our traditional mother-of-pearl face trimmed with multicolor millefiori designs, while the band is crafted of stainless steel mesh. 9.5in. long, quartz movement. Exclusive to Uno Alla Volta.
Beautiful Face but Band a Problem Two years ago I ordered similar version of watch from Uno Alla Volta that had black leather band with two strips of colorful flowers on either side of face. Within 6 months, one of the strips became loose and fell out. I wasn't aware when this happened so unable to glue back in place. Because I received so many compliments on the colorful face, I was excited to see the stainless steel option (anything with nickel turns wrist green). I have large wrist - normally wear 8-8 1/4" bracelets.
Pros: Rectangle face with flower border is beautiful. Stainless steel band attractive. I only own 1 watch so wanted something that works for dress as well as casual. Dial easy to read. Love it has a second hand.
Cons: Mesh band is not flexible. Band barely long enough for 8" wrist because of where holes are placed. Band also won't stay secure under the two metal straps that are to hold end of band in place. Continuing having to push end of band back under the two sliding bands-otherwise end flaps freely.
For smaller wrists this watch likely would be a 5 star.
