Going Crazy for Chronographs!

Ladies' Chronograph watches have become the must-have style of wrist candy of late. I for one, absolutely love them and have been lusting after my own masculine design for some time now.


Fung-ling: DKNY NY4984
Everywhere I look I seem to see beautiful people sporting one of these shiny beauties. From fellow bloggers to my best friend, it seems that I am yet to follow in their footsteps and purchase myself one for my collection, but Oh, which one to choose!

My best friend, Fung-ling was recently given this gorgeous DKNY Ladies' Black Ceramic and Rose Gold Chronograph from her Dad. I love that it's such a classic watch design yet has a modern twist with the mix of black ceramic and rose gold casing and the crystal studded bezel framing the watch face.

The DKNY NY4984 is £275 RRP but the best price I found was Amazon.co.uk at £219.


Ekaete: Michael Kors MK5410
I also spotted one of my favourite bloggers, Ekaete, wearing her Michael Kors Chronograph in Rose Gold on her Red Lips and Roses blog. Again, such a classic design, but with a twist of the Navy blue watch face, set against the Rose Gold plating of the watch itself. I personally find that all gold or all rose gold watches can be a bit much, so it is nice to break it up with the contrasting colour.

The Michael Kors MK5410 is £239 RRP and most stores are selling it at this price - ASOS.com, House of Fraser, John Lewis etc. It is around $250 in the states, so you may be able to order from the USA cheaper - but I don't know shipping costs/exchange rates, so don't take my word for it, it's just a suggestion!

I absolutely adore Fung-ling's and Ekaete's watch choices, along with a similar one from Marc by Marc Jacobs (of which there are so many colour combinations to chose from!) below.

But my absolute favourite has to be this Guess design in gold with a silver watch face. I've been seeking a gold watch for a long time and after seeing this darling design I was instantly sold - Chronograph and yellow gold it ticks all the boxes. It's classic and timeless. Perfect! The only small negative is that it doesn't have a date window like the other three above, however, I have never owned a watch with a date window so cannot miss something I have never used. I seriously doubt this minor flaw will halt my future purchase. Now to justify this spend in next month's budget.....

Guess W16571 RRP £180
Do you own a Chronograph watch? I'd love to know which designer you went for in the end.

  1. Of course I am biased and my favourite is the Michael Kors, however the Guess one is gorgeous! A timeless watch for sure.
    Ha, so weird... as I was writing this I got a notification on my phone saying you just commented on my blog!
