Are Michael Kors watches any good?

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 

I want to buy my first watch and I've been looking at this Michael Kors watch http://www.michaelkors.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod2420007&parentId=cat7501&masterId=cat4801&index=17&cmCat=cat000000cat4801cat7501&isEditorial=false I don't know if this is a good investment or should I just save my money for a better watch...

I know nothing about watches, but I don't think many on this forum would approve of a Michael Kors watch. My wife watches Project Runway, so I could never buy one simply because I wouldn't want to hear his annoying voice in my head every time I looked at my watch. That being said, I generally think the Michael Kors watches I've seen have nice designs. If you like the way it looks, I say buy it. If you're looking to save your money for a SF-approved time piece, you'll have a lot of saving to do to bridge the gap between this watch and even the lower tier of SF-approved brands like Tag Heuer or Baume and Mercier. Basically, until you're ready to spend over $1k on a watch, just buy what you think looks good.

More to the point, don't buy a watch from a brand which does not make watches it's primary (preferably only) business.

For the most part, Michael Kors watches look like cheap, bedazzled pieces of crap.

For the same amount of money, I would get a stainless steel Seiko or Bulova.

I my opinion, goldtone watches look kind of gaudy. I would suggest a fairly conservative stainless steel watch with hour/minute/seconds hands and date. Much more versatile and much more classy.

I was just looking at MK watches this morning. Are you buying for your mother too?

I would never refer to an MK watch as an investment. I agree with getting a Seiko or a Tissot for watches under $500. Check the poor man's watch thread for others.

Depends on whether you are talking mens or womens stuff.

Got it. Thanks everyone for your replies, you guys sure did help. I've decided to save my money for a more quality watch from a business whose focus is primarily watches...I'll check into the poor mans watch thread (ugh, that just sounds so bad, but life is life). Hopefully, in a couple of years I can afford a SF-approved [Rolex] watch. Lol.

I don't know who in SF approved Rolex. It is certainly on my DB list along with Panerai.

I would hope that Patek is not on your list. wink.gif

Not at all. Besides, only watch affectionados know what they are. My daily wear is a 14k gold vintage JLC (1957) with a gator strap.

Rolexes say: "I have no idea what a good watch is but I'm very impressionable to advertising and I wanted to show the world/easily impressionable people that I had $8k to burn and [lack of] taste to match!"

I actually like the styling of Rolexes. I think a vintage Explorer looks quite nice as a casual watch. That said, I also have no idea about watches and don't pretend to be knowledgeable on anything other than what I think looks cool.
