Before I get into my review, if you've never purchased a watch from Amazon before, look into the term "gray market". Know what you're getting yourself into first, especially if what you're looking to purchase is pricey for your budget.

That said, I've wanted a gold tone Kors watch for years, but couldn't bring myself to spend that amount of money on something so trendy. "Will this big face watch still be relevant in 5 years?" being my hesitation. I think it's also worth noting that, while I love diamonds (and natural emeralds and rubies) I've never been one for crystals... at all. Me in a crystal clad watch is like... well, shocking to anyone who knows me lol. I've always seen such things as gaudy.

I really liked the tortoise shell watches but thought they looked a little too masculine. The crystals on the Parker Glitz make it more feminine while the tortoise shell adds color and texture (and makes it lighter in weight). My biggest concern was that this watch face would be entirely too large. I'm not petite but I have disproportionately tiny wrists. While the face is large, it works quite well on me. And while it is a bit showy, it doesn't look at all tacky. I was unsure after I placed the order, but very pleased when it arrived.

I don't believe I ever tried this particular watch on in the store, but I tried on a number of other watches in varying price ranges when playing with the idea of the boyfriend watch. Personally, having a smaller wrist, I liked the ones made by Kors best (even better than Coach). And even without having tried this one on before buying, it still ended up looking great on my arm. The pictures do this watch no justice. If you want "bling" the crystals on this face will not disappoint. I wasn't really looking for "bling", but I'm enjoying these crystals more than I imagined I would lol.

This watch is even prettier in person. It's a Christmas gift for my niece that she picked out of a catalog. The pic was okay, but it's so much prettier in person that I've added the rose gold version to my wish list!!! Again, free 2-day shipping with Prime membership is terrific!

My wife has two other Michael Kors watches and wanted this one to complete her set. I like the stainless one the best. Item shipped quickly.

I never write reviews on amazon but I thought I would be the change I want to see in the world.

My friend got this watch from a department store, and I just had to have it right away because it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.
So far it is perfect except for the fact that you will most likely have to resize it when it arrives. I was thinking of going to a department store and asking them for help, but it's pretty easy to resize it by removing the pins with a watch kit. I bought a watch kit right on amazon, and it's actually really fun to remove the pins.

The color in the picture makes the watch look kind of yellow-y, but it is actually a beautiful rose gold, and it looks so awesome with the tortoise shell brown color in the middle.

This is absolutely my favorite Michael Kors design that I have ever seen because it mixes gold with tortoise shell. I have gotten so many compliments on this, and it is definitely the coolest piece of jewelry that I own... even if it is kind of "preppy." I've only had it for a few months but I have no complaints about the battery or it coming from Amazon.

Unfortunately, when compared to a real Michael Kors watch ( purchased from a Michal Kors store) Latch is different :-/
