About a half a year ago, I saw someone wearing a watch and fell in love. I coveted that watch for the past 6 months and hinted incessantly to my husband that he should get it for me for every hallmark holiday I could think of. A few weeks ago, while exchanging something at Macy's for him, I looked around to see if the watch was there and it was. I tried it on and was convinced that that was the one I wanted...no question in my mind. But while sitting at my computer one day, I thought to check the price on Amazon and found it was much better. I anxiously awaited my birthday in July hoping perhaps I'd finally get it. I did check Amazon to make certain there weren't any other watches I liked better...although I did save a couple others to my cart, I wasn't sold on them and was certain I'd stick with my original love. I came across this one (MK5165) but wasn't impressed and didn't bother to save it. In the meantime, the hubby had a gift card to Macy's and was kind enough to send me to Macy's to find my watch for my birthday. I immediately went to the counter that contained the one I'd wanted since last year but thought to look for the others I'd seen on Amazon. When I saw the MK5165 in person, I had to stop. I was no longer convinced about the other one. I tried both on and found the other one looked slightly juvenile whereas the MK5165 looked more sophisticated. I feared I would tire of the one I'd originally wanted but the Michael Kors seemed more timeless. A passerby stopped and asked if I needed an opinion and I accepted. He felt the same as I did...the Kors was the way to go. And so I went with this watch (the MK5165) and I am ecstatic over my purchase. It's the perfect size and has just the right amount of bling. I have tiny wrists but I'm tall so I feel it suits me well. If I hadn't had the gift card, I would have totally gotten it from Amazon...they consistently offer the best prices around!
