I’ve wanted an oversized Michael Kors watch for so long. I’ve been eyeing on the gold, but I’m not really willing to spend for it. Yes, it’s nice but I have a few gold watches already. The difference of Michael Kors from what I already have is it’s more “manly”/ sporty. I can still sleep at night without it so I never pondered on buying one. Haha! Well, not until my Malaysia trip last Decmber…
I actually gave a sneak peek of the watch in my Going Around Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia post. Patty, Nikki and I were drawn by the SALE sign outside the Michael Kors boutique. Of course, being a bag lover, the first thing I checked- BAGS, while Patty went straight to the watches. Unfortunately, both sections weren’t included in the sale items. 🙁 Since the MK bag I’ve been longing wasn’t available, I then visited the watches. I tried on the gold Runway watch I’ve been eyeing ever since, but I still didn’t had plans on buying. I really don’t have that strong urge to get one. I was (and still am) on a shopping ban anyway. BUT when Patty tried on the midsize tortoise watch, my eyes sparkled! 😀 I immediately asked for the oversized version. The moment I tried it on, I didn’t want to take it off already! Eeeek! My no-shopping promise in KL obviously didn’t happen! But no regrets… 😀
Isn’t this Oversized Tortoise watch a beauty?! The dark brown face with golden accents matches the Tortoise acrylic bracelet and shiny golden stainless steel case. It has three sub-dials and date window too. So, what happened with the Golden Runway watch I’ve been eyeing? Obviously, it was left on their shelves. LOL! With the help of Patty and Nikki (thanks girls!), we thought that the Tortoise acrylic bracelet is more unique than the gold one. And since I already have gold watches and could even get a gold men’s watch at a cheaper price almost anywhere, this became the best option. 😀
It’s priced at MYR 999, a bit more expensive than getting it in the US ($250).
Nevertheless, Patty and I got it. It’s too gorgeous to leave it behind. LOL! 😀
While waiting for our watches to get resized…
And here we are having fun at the airport while waiting for our flight back to Manila… 😀 Pose, pose, pose with our twin watches! 😀
