You can whisper the name Michael Kors and it won’t go unnoticed. With its watches adorning the wrists of many a fashion blogger, stylist, celebrity and super chic, style conscious females around the world – it will be no surprise to hear it is one of the biggest selling watch brands of the modern moment. Founded by the great Karl Anderson Jr, fashion designer extraordinaire from New York City whose collections of women’s clothes, handbags and accessories feature in almost every glossy going, you can imagine my slight over-excitement when the Michael Kors box landed on my desk!
At first glance
Highly anticipating its quality, style, weight and aesthetic I couldn’t wait to get the box open – a 2 year warranty and complete instructions. A good start. My first thoughts are GOLD. This watch is in a yellow gold tone which we saw a lot of at this year’s Baselworld. Personally, I prefer rose gold because I find it easier to style with a bunch of bangles and other accessories, gold or silver. The gold on this beauty is just a tad too yellow for me.
Up close and personal
The Runway watch, as it is most commonly known features a champagne dial with golden brushed accents inside a 38mm case. The depth of the watch is a mighty 13mm housing the crown and 2 pushers to operate the chronograph function. Gold markers, gold chronograph, gold hands…you catch my drift. The date display sits beside the 4 hour marker which in my opinion slightly disjoints the alignment in the dial. I know I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to these things.
On the wrist
This quartz watch features a strap with a width of 20mm and sits comfortably on the wrist with an appropriate fold over clasp. Water resistant to 100 metres, the watch makes the perfect partner for poolside pondering. Brilliant for those jet-setters amongst us!
