Watching the Clock

Before last summer, I had very little interest in wearing/owning a watch. I had my cell phone to tell me the time, so what could a watch do for me? Oh, how I was wrong. Last summer Gabe bought me one of the gold Michael Kors watches for my birthday and I've been in love ever since. I find myself constantly eyeing a new watch, in a new color or shape, and wanting to bring it home with me. As I've mentioned here and here, I adore all the Michael Kors watches and would love to start a collection. The three trends that interest me most right now are watches in gold, bright colors, and the return of the digital watch! There are so many options at so many different price points, I feel like I can absolutely justify owning more than one. What watches are you eyeing right now?

1. Michael Kors 'Jet Set' Chronograph Watch in Rose Gold $250
2. MICHAEL Michael Kors
Stainless Steel Chronograph Watch $225
3. Swatch
'Fancy Me' Watch $150
4. Vestal
Electra Gold-Tone Leather Cuff Watch $59

5. Marc by Marc Jacobs "Pelly" Watch $175
Turquoise Translucent Watch with White Dial $85
7. MICHAEL Michael Kors
Blue Chronograph Watch $195
8. Nixon
'The Time Teller' Watch $60

9. Timex Plastic Watch $50
10. Diesel
Digital Watch $120
11. Jelly
Baby-G Watch $79
12. Casio
Men's Digital Bracelet Watch $14.37

I just recently became obsessed with watches too!!! I'm still on the hunt for the perfect white watch! :)

I love your choices!! That rose gold one is beautiful!!!

Diana Mieczan said...

I adore watches and last year I got a CK one that I love!
Michael Kors watch is so cute!

Gabriel said...

Oh, how times have changed! I'm happy to see your obsession doesn't include rolex or cartier(not yet anyway). I think #12 is the watch your dad wears.

A.Co said...

Same here!!! I was the same and now am totally feelin' them!

I loooooove #1, 2 & 4.

Rose gold, yes... I think that'll have to be my next purchase... mmmm :)

Joe got me a MK gold watch for me this year (read off my blog) .. and i LOVE it .. i always go for huge, big, bulky watches - i never use them to tell time - i just wear as another piece to my outfit!


Sweet Southern Prep said...

Still love numbers 1 and 2. Can't go wrong with MK! Happy Shopping! :)

Marcie said...

I really want a Cartier tank watch, but I am not dedicated enough to watches to spend that kind of money. Right now I am looking at the Michael Kors boyfriend watch in silver, but I just got a new purse, so I may have to wait a little while.

I haven't been in to watches very much myself -- but looking at those I'm instantly drawn to #1! Hmm... might need to find an "investment" watch :)

Cafe Fashionista said...

Magically I have a knack for falling in love with Michael Kors anything. J'adore that MICHAEL Michael Kors Stainless Steel Chronograph Watch - the color and aesthetic is phenomenal!! :)

Lindsay said...

thanks for stopping by my blog! I love all those watches way to cute! I think I need to go shopping!

Josie said...

I looooove the rose gold Michael Kors watch and the purple Marc Jacobs one! So pretty. I went through a phase where I didn't like watches but I am COMPLETELY back into them now! So gorgeous.
xxoo Josie

Valerie said...

Yes, Gabe! #12 is absolutely the watch my dad wears! Look how stylish Stanley is! ;)

Go dad!

Life of a Doctor's Wife said...

Oooh! So pretty! I love that rose gold one.

I usually go for those super thin bracelety watches. I have very wimpy wrists, so any of those awesome choices would make me look like some sort of Flava Flav impersonator.

Hello*Pretty said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! :) I'm not a watch wearer, (totally agree w/ the cell phone thing) but have recently been on the prowl. Great choices!! xo- karrie

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I love watch number 2! I have been wanting a watch lately. I have no idea why because I always use my phone, but I think I would love it if I got one, as you did. Thanks for sharing this lovely collection of watches. I might have to go get one!

I've never really had an interest in wearing watches for the same reasons you gave...but these are pretty amazing. I love the rose gold one!

Leah said...

I love those watches... I love huge watches. Michael Kors has such fab watch collections. xoxo

Nadine2point0 said...

I find that there is clock everywhere, including in my studio, so I never wear a watch unless it adds to my outfit....I LOVE #2 and #4!
Great post.

Bren said...

Love the MK rose gold, and who doesn't love the classic digital Casio! The MK is more my style though! I still would love a white MK for Summer, with the clear dial/face.

When I was younger I used to love wearing watches.... and even had the dreaded watch tan! Yikes... my current watch (which I don't really wear often enough) is a men's Nixon watch.. I love that it's big! I also have a dainty woman Orient watch.. I like to wear that one with a few bracelets. :)

My favorite out of all your picks would have to be #1! It's fabulous.

xx Love & Aloha

I've never really craved a watch and now I see ones I want everywhere. I love the bright colors but I want a classic gold for dress up.

I love the first Michael Kors. I am loving rose gold lately - especially when mixed with white and yellow gold.

LOVE the M. Kors watch! The color is gorgeous. :)

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Lately, I've been seriously considering that I need an amazing watch. A classic piece to pass on you know? Great post! As always =)

Leslie, Lemon Sweet Life said...

I love the first watch! So pretty, the color is really neat. I don't have a watch but I have been eyeing the menswear inspired ones lately. I think I may ask for one of my grandpa's vintage watches because I think that would be really cool to wear. Thanks for the sweet comment, I will definitely be keeping you posted on all of the wedding plans!


Jen said...

My favorite watch is the one that tells me where I am, how fast I'm traveling, and allows me to map my route online. It's a Garmin GPS watch. I'm a bit odd, I know...

MyLittlePhotographs said...

I'm definitely in need of a watch!! I love the super colorful ones you have posted. My birthday is next week, maybe I'll ask for one, since I haven't really asked for anything else lol

By the way, you have to tell me about Temescal hike, I've never been, is it a really good workout? I may have to try that next.

Krystal said...

I love those michael kors much! i just recently bought a fun gold watch from urban outfitters!!

Lindsay With An "A" said...

You know - this is a GREAT post! I am not usually one to think "Oh, a watch! I want one!" But these options rock! My little honey just got me a Toy watch a year ago. It's all white with gold accents and some bling :) I love it!
