I bought this watch as a gift to myself when I completed a long fought for degree in Insurance. Surely studying such a dull subject for 5 years should result in a nice present!
These watches were just becoming really popular at the time and so it was an easy choice and I absolutely loved buying it. The jeweler made such a huge deal about it and helped me to try on lots of different Michael Kors watches but this was my favourite.
The watch can be made smaller by removing some of the links and the jeweler actually did this for me in store for free which meant I could walk out wearing it straight away.
It comes in a really lovely box that makes you feel special and your extra links are stored in a little pouch in there so you can add them later if you need to.
I receive so many lovely comments from people every day. It's a real eye catching piece and 2 of my friends have bought one since they saw mine.
It's really quite chunky and heavy so if you usually wear a light watch you might find it annoying to begin with but you do get used to it pretty quickly. It also has the date on it which I love but it gets messed up when the months have less than 31 days so you have to manually change it which is easy to do.
I've also knocked the glass face loads of times and It's never left a scratch. Plus I've never lost a diamond which surprises me because I've had it for ages and wear it every day.
The only thing I don't like about it is that it's become hugely popular and so there are lots of fakes circulating. It annoys me when people ask "is it real"? Grr! This is why I didn't buy a Mulberry bag!
Any girl will love this though - a super guaranteed successful present for any boy to buy!
Michael Kors watch collection is amazing and this one is one of the best from its range. I got this watch when it first came out and paid £249 for it but you can get it for much cheaper now if you look around. Even at the price I paid, I would say it looks a lot more expensive than it actually was. Any Michael Kors fan will know that his watches are big and bold. Do not buy if you do not like large face and/or strap on a watch. These are very much in fashion at the moment and it seems every one I know now owns a watch. If you dont like this plain silver style, you can google Michael Kors Parker Blitz and you will see this exact style but in different colours. I also have the rose gold version.
The watch is very heavy and will feel heavy on your wrist but you do get used to this after a few days and wont notice the weight at all.
The bling around the face is stunning and I think this is what adds to its expensive look. I get so many comments when wearing this watch. You will not be disappointed.
The watch is very big when you buy it. If you buy it in a shop they should be able to take out links free of charge. I am not sure the rules when buying online.
