Keeping An Eye On The Time
I realise that most people tend to check the time on either their mobile, tablet, laptop, car clock or some other form of technology these days. I am hugely into tech but not where time is concerned. I prefer to check the time on a traditional analog clock/ watch face.
The Beauty Of A Watch
I love to wear a watch, there is something rather poignant about the idea of time literally ticking away on your wrist.
I’ve been meaning to buy a new watch for months now, I have looked at a range of watches and especially like the more chunky, robust and quality designs. I love a bit of bling, the more sparkles the better, this also applies to the watches that I choose to wear. Now I know where E gets her love for all things that glitter.
I’m not necessarily a ‘ label lass’ but after years of buying cheaper, lower quality products which have either broken or failed I now prefer to spend a few extra pennies and to purchase reliable products from reliable brands. By choosing well-known, reliable brands customers are offered product guarantees and reassurance in their product, this is certainly the case for Michael Kors.
Plus Watches recently offered me the opportunity to review a Michael Kors ladies watch. I jumped at the chance and took some time to select a specific design that I felt would suit me.
Plus Watches was set up in 2015 with the aim to offer quality watches to the public at accessible, competitive prices. Their expertise in watches came from one of their founding members whose family originated in Switzerland and has decades of experience in the watch and jewellery sector.
Plus Watches has a Worldwide customer base, they are therefore able to offer an extensive, international knowledge of watch and fashion trends, sourcing latest trends as they emerge at competitive prices without compromising quality.
Choosing A Watch
I am fairly dainty in terms of height and body structure that said I am far from the shape I wish to be. I only have small wrists and so wanted a watch which was chunky but still looked feminine, not too big, not too small, fairly plain with a few sparkles to complete the look.
I eventually chose the Michael Kors 5774 Ladies Parker Two-Tone Watch, featuring a rose gold steel and white ceramic bracelet with sparkling stones set along the bezel.
The Michael Kors 5774 Ladies Parker Two-Tone Watch is one of Plus Watches best sellers from the Michael Kors Parker collection. The watch itself uses a Japanese quartz movement and is battery operated, it is apparently water-resistant to 50 metres but I daren’t test this as the watch is simply beautiful and I would hate for it to get spoiled.
Postage & Packaging
The watch arrived promptly, it was packaged securely and upon opening the watch I found it was neatly boxed in a beautiful black leatherette style Michael Kors case, this was also protected by a white cardboard sheath.
The Big Reveal
Inside the box the watch was carefully cushioned and wrapped with protective cellophane and the instructions were neatly stored at the back of the box.
After very carefully removing the protective wrapping and cushion from the watch I tried the watch on. Let me tell you, this is a stunning watch, it oozes quality and sophistication. It is fairly chunky and has some weight to it but over the past few days I have become accustomed to wearing this watch and have hardly noticed its weight, only it’s beauty.
Adjusting The Watch
As I expected the watch was slightly too large for my wrist and whilst my husband tried using a watch makers set to remove a few links he found it too tricky and so I took it to a local jeweller to adjust the watch.
The jeweller was also very impressed by the watch. He told me that he sees a fair amount of ‘fakes’ brought to him for adjustment and they simply do not compare to the real thing any shape or form.
Loving My Michael Korrs Watch
I love being able to check the time and date at a flick of my wrist. There is also a stop watch feature which has already come into use with the children timing how long it takes them to race around the house and such like.
I can honestly say that this is the best watch that I have ever worn, it is a timeless piece which has already gained great attention from my friends and family. Not only is the Michael Kors 5774 Ladies Parker Two-Tone Watch stunning, it is also very comfortable to wear, easy to set and to use and generally practical for purpose.
