The tortoiseshell is very unique and goes with pretty much everything. I was debating between this style, MK5216, and the MK5038. I've compared both in person, and the MK5038 is much smaller. The MK5216 is definitely an oversized watch, which I think looks better with this style. The MK5038 is the "petite" version, or normal sized when you think of women's watches in general. The face is a little harder to read on that one. As for the dials, I think the stopwatch aspect of the MK5216 is pretty useless; I'd rather have the dials on the MK5038. Nordstrom's carries the MK5038 if you want to see it before you buy it cheaper online (!) and they will also resize any watch for you on the spot if you ask :) I needed two links taken out of this band. Also, the gold aspects of the watch are yellower in person, not as light as pictured. Overall, I am very happy with this watch!

I was a little worried this watch would be too gaudy, but it looks great in person. A little more subdued. As I mentioned my gf loved it. It has a substantial feel to it and is just the right size. Its colors go great with her blonde hair. (If tortoise shell shades look good on you this will too.) Its easy to set, the chrono works great and very easy to read.

I would suggest not adjusting the size yourself. I have a number of watches, and the neccessary tools and it took me way too long. They dont use the spring pins and theyre very tight in there, maybe they used a smidgen of locktite.

Regardless the gf loves it and as a watch snob myself, i can say this watch is pretty good quality for a fashion watch at this price.

I love this watch! Have been wanting it for 9 months and have been watching the price rise and fall. I bought it at what I thought was probably near the lowest it would be. I love the look and feel of it. I am saving it to wear for dressy occasions since I am really rough on watches. I love the color of the band and the face. Just really classy looking! Had one link removed because it was quite big. I have a slender wrist and it has the look of a bracelet. Just the perfect look I wanted. I love it, love it, love it!

I saw this watch and debated for 2 months if I should spend the money. Went back and forth between this and the 5038 I believe. I even went Macy's to look in person and try on. Once I did that it was a no brainier and I jumped back on Amazon and it was even cheaper than before and certainly cheaper than anywhere else. I went with this size and wish I had more clothes that matched it so I could wear it every day. It does come big but I am a stylist and tend to wear my watches up forearm so I have not taken it in to size, it works for me. Face of watch is beautiful and yes a bit flashy at first but it's so pretty. I get a ton of compliments and am so happy I splurged on myself!

I really like this watch, needed some adjustment, but it is so pretty n unique that it gets compliments on the regular n though its kinda large, it isn't real heavy... n Big is in. If worn more like bangle it looks like striking accessory for lots of outfits. Glad I bought it. Now wanna get a complimenting man's style for my hubby n I to match.

Michael Kors does it again with high standards and great quality in their product! This was a gift for my girlfriend, and it ended up being a great choice. Obviously watch design depends all on personal preference, but you can bet that any watch in this model comes in pristine shape and looks very sharp. Very worth the price if you are looking for a rather inexpensive gift for someone special!

I love the tortoise bracelet on this watch and have received many compliments. I did have to take it to a jeweler to be resized because the bracelet was quite loose and I do not have a delicate wrist. But it was worth the effort and extra expense because I love the watch.

This watch is BEYOND gorgeous!!! I can't believe how beautiful it is! I completely understand why MK is so costly, for watched like this he deserves it! It came on time, was packaged beautifuly and just Oh so beautiful when I took it out the box. It's a little big but links can be taken out to fit so you will have no problem adjusting the size. The face is big too but that's what a boyfriend watch is and besides it's so beautiful I just don't care. One of the best buys from Amazon. The seller did a Great Job with this and is worth buying from. Do yourself a favor and buy this!!!!

I was waffling between this watch and the MK5038. I was looking for a statement watch, and that is exactly what this is. I have very small wrists, but decided to give this watch a shot even though it is the larger one. The watch itself looks a lot flashier in real life than it does in the picture. The gold is very shiny, and the crystals sparkle a lot. It is also enormous-- the watch face case is thick, heavy, and substantial. The band is lovely. I also really liked the mother of pearl watch face. It is quite irredescent and has notes of green in it that I liked a lot. However, the face covered the entirety of my wrist, so I decided to send it back. Some people could make that look work, but I am not one of them.

So in the end, this is a gorgeous, interesting statement watch that was just not right for me. I've ordered the MK5038 and I'm hoping for better luck with that one.
