The River Island Rose Gold watch!


You may remember, back in June, my little haul of jewels. I mentioned in that post that there was one more jewel to come and that I would dedicate a post to it.





Well, finally here it is. . .


A little post dedicated to my lovely new(ish) River Island Rose Gold watch.
I'm sure that many of you have seen it before as it has been hyped as a good dupe for the infamous Michael Kors' watches.

Yes indeed, it is oversized; masculine; chunky; rose gold and friggin' gorgeous. I have barely been without it over the last 6 weeks and it still looks brand new and much more expensive then the £25 that it actually cost.

Back when the watch was first delivered, I was very disappointed as the watch was wayyy too big and links needed to be removed so a little visit to Timpsons was required but the little extra wait was worth it as I adore this watch and have yet to find an outfit that it doesn't compliment.

What dupes do you love? Are you in to the rose gold trend? Are you lucky enough to have a real Michael Kors watch?

Hey, I also recently bought this watch and found it was too big. Just wondering how much it cost you to get some of the links removed as I'm thinking I'm probably going to have to do the same. Many thanks! X

Six possibly eight pounds but you might as well get them taken out, its such a beautiful watch. It would be a shame to waste it! xx

@CARLY
Hi Carly, maybe ask around,I think most jewellers will take links out for you for a small price.
It might even be worth asking in River Island, as I think this watch is probably too big for most wrists as it is. Maybe they will take the links out for you. I'm not sure, sorry, ordered mine online. Think it's worth asking around though, it is a gorgeous watch.
Hope you're having a nice bank holiday!:)

Thank you so much!
Ha, me too but it's a good obsession. Much worse things we could be obsessed with. ;)

@hanalulu
Ooohh,lucky you working in River Island. I wouldn't half make the most of my staff discount if it was me and yep, this watch is a WHOLE lot more purse friendly.:D
I think they do it in a standard gold too.

@Bex
Awh, thank you ever so much. xx
I haven't done a tag or award post for ages so might have a go at this one but I really appreciate the mention anyway, thank you so soo much for thinking of me and my little blog. What a great end to the day :)) By the way, the book 'The Help' is fab. I've done it the opposite way to you and read the book but still haven't seen the film yet. I'm always a bit slow on the movie thing . . .

I love rose gold on watches, I should get one some time :)

Essjay23x said...

@the Martha from Malta diary
Yes, you should ;) Let me know when you do! Thanks for reading xx

Mahathi Meruga said...

Hey, After reading your Reviews I wanna buy it too...!!
Can you tell me the dimensions of the dial ?
This info is not available in any of the online stores.

It looks nice! I’m sure you did not have a difficult time looking for an outfit that will match it. You could be wearing a casual tee and jeans, yet still look fabulous with this beautiful timepiece on. Cheers!
