Gold Rush

Just like the boyfriend blazer and the boyfriend jeans, sometimes we girls just want to borrow a few fashions from the fellas. Right now, it's all about men's style wristwatches.

This season the gold-tone link bracelet watch is the perfect accessory because it's pretty, yet practical. It adds a bit of an edge to any ensemble, while still providing a subtle feminine flair with a few delicate details.

Would you wear a watch of this style?

Check out some of these:


SEIKO SG788 available at fredmeyerjewelers.com for $188


Betsey Johnson Metallic Link Watch available at www.urbanoutfitters.com for $95


AK Anne Klein Ceramic Bracelet Watch available at www.nordstrom.com for $95


Marc by Marc Henry Watch available at www.shopbop.com for $225


Seiko Kinetic SKA401 available at www.jcpenny.com for $318.75


D & G Time Pampelonne 46mm Chrono Watch available at www.bloomingdales.com for $350

I luv this style watch, I've been eyeing it for a minute. This is a must have for me! The Mark Henry & Betsey Johnson styles are my fave out this bunch.

You're right on the money with this post. I've been wanting a guy-style watch and have been looking into getting one. Just from what you've displayed, there's a good range to choose from. Great choices!

I love mens style watches in general. I had a silver one and got a great gold one by Michael Kors from Nordstrom in June and love it. They always have some nice ones during their semi-annual sale

Great posts. I'm not into watches, but these would be great Christmas gifts for my mom.

Rebee said...

I wish I could wear them but my wrists are too small.
But I may look in to Seiko Kinetic.

hahaa! i've had one since january or so and that's exactly what i call it... a boyfriend watch. my sister got me into them as she loves all BIG AND HUGE accessories. at first it felt awkward like it was always flashy, but now it feels right for a plus sized chica like me. i have the time on my BB, my ipod and all around me, but i still have to check the wrist.

Ok, I must have the Betsey Johnson! That might have to be a Christmas present from someone...thanks for the idea!

While I absolutely love gold, I am a huge fan of the watches with a gold and silver mix in them. They are a bit more versatile to me.

I do like that D & G watch though... :)
