Michael Kors vs Marc Jacobs

Pretty much since I've been blogging Michael Kors watches have been floating around. Not too often mind as they are expensive, but more often than I would expect a watch to crop up.

Now I have to say I originally I loved the look of them, then whilst in Edinburgh I had a look at them in the flesh as it were and I found that I wasn't as struck on them as I originally thought I was. To me I thought they would look far too big on my small wrists, and therefore a little daft.

Whilst browsing watches over the last few weeks I have stumbled upon Marc Jacobs watches of which I now know I prefer to the Michael Kors watches that I have seen. I haven't seen any Marc Jacobs watches in the flesh yet so who knows, maybe I may get the same impression as the Michael Kors watches; they do appear to be smaller though.
Michael Kors vs Marc Jacobs

1. Michael Kors MK8096 Rose Gold Watch  £219
2. Michael Kors Rose Gold Plated Chronograph Ladies Watch  £209
3. Michael Kors ladies' rose gold-plated bracelet watch  £165
4. Marc by Marc Jacobs Amy 36mm  $200 (I could only find an American price for this particular watch).
5. Marc Jacobs ladies' gold plated bracelet watch  £185
6. Marc by Marc Jacobs Amy Dexter Rose Watch  £185

I've gathered a small collection of these watches, three from each designer. My favourite from the above would have to be a choice between number 4 and number 5 with I think number 5 having a slight edge. Whilst compiling this post I was not aware as to how many watches by these designers there are! I'm used to seeing the same watch pretty much so it was quite nice shopping in my head with all these watches available at my finger tips.

I'm really planning on treating myself once I graduate from university. I wasn't going to as I thought it is a lot of money really but actually I have decided that I've worked really hard over these last few years, as well as holding onto my job throughout my degree. A little self justification there but I wouldn't like people to think I was going to just splash the cash freely, it would be a reward to myself from myself! I may yet change my mind as graduation is just over five months away so I'm sure I may see something else by that time. 

A lot of these Marc Jacobs watches have 'Amy' within the title on quite a few websites, maybe this was meant to be!

  1. I really wanted a Marc Jacobs watch for so long but found a really nice tortoiseshell MK one on sale from ASOS - so I bought that! But I still really love MJ so I might have to buy one eventually. :) no. 4 is really nice!

    1. ooo that sounds nice :)
      Yeh I like no 4 and no 5, they are expensive but I think we all deserve a little something nice once and a while. It will take me a wee while to save up for it though!

    1. I agree, they are definitely not something you can just go and buy. Great birthday presents or Christmas gifts though, money permitting x

  3. I got a Michael Kors watch for my birthday last year I am totally in love with it however, I have seen so many watches that I also love that are far cheaper, I guess it's nice to have a good watch but am I going to be in love with it in 5 years time...probably not!
    The Marc Jacobs watches are gorgeous I especially love number 4 in your list :) xx

    1. Yes I can see what you mean there, I'm still rather undecided, I may not get one in the end. A lot of people are liking number 4! :)

      Thanks Angela :) xx

  4. Ooh I love number 4! I love the engraved designer around the dial? I think the MJ ones are better than MK personally.. too many people own the Kors watches now in my opinion xx

  5. I would so love a Michael Kors Rose Gold watch - though hearing that they don't look as good in person does put me off a little bit! Maybe I need to look into Marc Jacobs watches more!

    1. They look nice but they are quite huge, that's just my personal opinion though :) x

  6. Marc Jacobs are pretty but I think I still prefer the Michael Kors ones, I like the big watch faces but the MJ are really lovely as well.
