I originally received this watch as a gift, probably 15+ years ago. I love, love, love it. After replacing the batteries, it finally gave out on me. I was thrilled that the same watch was still available, so ordered it right away. I hope to have this one just as long. You can't go wrong with anything Brighton.
My 3rd Santa Rosa Watch
By Sue from Albany, OR

I wear this watch everyday, everywhere. But, because I wear it so much, I have worn it a bit ragged, so I've had to retire a few of these watches. I'm so glad you have continued to carry this style because it works so well for me. I get lots of compliments on it because it's so beautiful, but it's also very comfortable, easy to take on and off, reliable, and sturdy.
PLEASE keep carrying this watch!!
A great Mother's Day gift!

Love everything about my new Brighton watch! It was time to replace my old watch - a Brighton, also - still running after 8 years of daily wear.
LOVE MY WATCH!

I absolutely love my new watch! It's beautiful, classy and the size of the numbers make it easy to tell time from a distance. I'm not a huge fan of the toggle closure, it can be a little difficult to put on or take off, but I still love my watch despite this. This was an early Christmas gift to myself, and I'm so glad I chose this gorgeous watch.

Purchased this watch again after wearing my first watch out. It is a great watch, is adjustable and I have worn it every day for the past 5 or 6 years and it really does wear well. For that reason I chose to purchase the exact same watch again.
Lost due to toggle clasp
By Katherine from Windsor, CO
On October 29, 2014:
I loved this watch. It's my favorite watch I've ever owned. I wore it only when I wanted a special look and so it would retain it's finish and stay beautiful. Over the last five years it had occasionally fallen off my wrist due to the toggle clasp coming undone. I would always see it fall and put it back on. Unfortunately, I dozed off during a plane ride recently and only noticed it missing after I had deplaned. The airline can't find it and now I have to decide whether or not its worth the gamble to buy another one.
Best Birthday Gift Ever!

I love this watch! Picked it for its brighter silver hue. It fits exactly as it should with a toggle and I have small wrists! Goes great with all Brighton bracelets! A classic!
Watch is a little big
By Mary from Knoxville, TN
On June 18, 2014:
I like the watch and decided to keep it - but it is a little big for my wrist - even fastened on the tightest ring. I would probably wear it more often if it didn't slide so far down on my hand and get in the way. Other than the fit, the watch is very attractive and I will wear it occasionally. I do have a smaller wrist and a 7 1/4 in bracelet is usually to big for me. I should have thought of that before I ordered.
Quality Not What it Used To Be
By Samantha from Houston, TX
On May 6, 2014:
I've owned several Brighton watches and this one in particular is not of the quality I'm used to. The design is nice etc. but the quality is cheap compared to older watches they made. They're charging the same prices or more but have taken true sterling products and made them into something with just a silver coating. I own the Brittany watch which is no longer available and there's no comparison.

I have owned this watch for about 12 years now and it still looks new, despite frequent wear and being tossed in my jewelry drawer. I love the classic design. It looks great casual with jeans or fantastic on a dressy evening. It's kept perfect time. I have never had a problem with it coming unlatched or falling off. Not once in 12 plus years. I'm thrilled to see it is still offered in your line. I guess you agree with me - it's a classic piece. I recommend you buy one for yourself and see.

I absolutely loved this watch. I needed a dressy watch that looked like a bracelet, but was stylish and feminine. This watch did exactly that!!

Finally Fell Off...For Good
By Holly from Queensbury, NY
On August 4, 2013:
I loved this watch. I had it for several years and it was as nice as the day I purchased it. The only complaint I have is, it fell,off my wrist many, many times over the years because of a poor design ...toggled through the chain...but alway slipped out. Great watch, terrible design.
By Sharon from Montgomery, TX
On May 26, 2013:
I fell in love with this watch - but just like some of the other reviews I have had problems with it falling off my wrist. I had it for less than a month and it fell off my wrist seven times, I just returned it today. I had owned another Brighton watch for around six years with that same type clasp and it never fell off my wrist - not sure the problem with this style but it appears that the chain is too large for the fastener.
Beautiful and Withstands the Test of Time

I have owned this watch for over ten years and love it just as much today as the day I bought it. It's my go to accessory as it coordinates with all styles.

I looked at this watch for the past several months and decided against buying it at least a half dozen times because of the toggle clasp. Do NOT let the clasp stop you - I finally purchased it and I love it. It has never accidentally come off my wrist and it's easy to put on. The face is easy to read. Very glad I bought it.
Love this watch but...
By Darlene from Bow, WA
On January 6, 2013:
I loved this watch and wore it for almost 10 years. I got compliments on it and it always gave me joy to look at it. I am an active person and wore the watch everyday. I had to send it in one time to get fixed but had a good customer service experience with Brighton. However, the watch would fall off my wrist periodically due to the toggle clasp. I finally lost the watch completely due to this issue. I was broken hearted. I definitely got my money's worth out of it but will not buy another toggle closure.

My daughter purchased this watch as a gift 6 years ago. It is still beautiful and the finish is perfect. However, I purchased a bracelet a few years ago and had the finish tarnish. I don't know if they are using different materials now or what. But, I am very reluctant to purchase any more pieces because of it.
Finish does not last
By Lisa from North Attleboro , MZ
On April 28, 2012:
I purchased this watch as I was guaranteed the finish was similar to my purse from Brighton that has silver parts on it however after a few months the sides of the watch still tarnished. As this is the second time this has occurred with the finish I will not be buying another watch from Brighton.

This was my first piece and my addiction continues . I have owned this piece for 4 yrs it is still as beautiful as when I first got it.
The beauty of Southern California's seaside town, Laguna
Beach, is reflected in this stunning, unique watch. Leather braiding complements the ropelike motif found on the metalwork. In a word: stunning!
