If there is one thing I have been wanting for a long time it is a Michael Kors watch, I have just never been able to afford one until recently. I decided that it was going to be my Christmas present to myself and through work I got a fantastic 20% off at Goldsmiths which gave me no further excuses and was all I needed to decide that I was getting a watch. Goldsmiths has a huge range but after narrowing it between two models, one slightly cheaper than this, I went for this MK5165 which was the pricier of the two but literally had all the right design that I wanted from a watch and it was silver which I was after.
I think this watch is absolutely stunning and it is the nicest watch I have ever owned. It comes in a beautiful black leather embossed case and has a silver stainless steel link strap and the face is surrounded by a crystal border as well as the watch having different dials on the front and the Michael Kors logo on the face and clip on the strap. It has a small date window which is a nice touch and all even numbers are shown as numbers on the face but the rest are shown as lines. The case thickness of this watch is 11mm and the case diameter is 39mm and it has a weight of 160g.
MICHAEL KORS MK5165 WATCH
With this watch it came all securely fastened into the case but upon trying it on, it was too big. My partner removed both of the links which wasn't too difficult if you know what you are doing, if you use a 1mm screwdriver and hammer you can fix this easily, I removed 3 links and it then fit perfectly, I couldn't have asked for a better fit. Once this watch was on, it opens by pushing in the two clips at the side and it springs open and then you close this section and it will sit tightly on your wrist. This watch is 100m water resistant but I really wouldn't want to test this to see if it was true as I'd never wear it underwater.
The stainless steel links on this watch are beautiful, it is really well made and to make adjustments to the time and date and further dials is easy enough to do by reading the small Michael Kors instruction book thoroughly. The date screen is a nice touch and once set, along with the time it has never moved since. There are three further sub-dials on this watch and these represent a 60 second screen, a 60 minute screen and a 24 hour clock. This watch is made of a scratch resistant mineral crystal and it looks expensive as it sparkles under lighting especially on all of the crystals.
My main worry about having this watch, is my fear of it getting any scratches. On the back of the watch face is the Michael Kors logo and model number etched onto the steel, I always put this into the case after wearing it and only wear it out of work as at work it may scratch off my desk when typing and I wouldn't want to risk it. This watch comes with a 2 year guarantee which is pretty standard with expensive watches and I hope no crystals fall out of it as so far so good. This watch is quite big but at the same time it is stylish and being silver it is really classy looking.
I have to be honest, I have no regrets about buying this watch as for what I have paid the quality is very high. It is easy to adjust, looks the part and I have had a lot of compliments and the crystals catch the light beautifully. It is stylish and when worn with a casual outfit it stands out and it also goes with a fancier outfit too. I love the style of this and I can tell if looked after and kept in the case when it has been worn, it will last for a very long time. I feel very pleased when wearing this and it is a lovely idea for a gift or if you want a high quality watch take a look at these.
This watch can be purchased on Goldsmiths website where it is £229 and they do free delivery, however if you want to try Amazon and eBay there are cheaper options.
