Men's gold watches

There's something tomboyishly sexy about a woman wearing an oversized man's watch. This Dutch cutie looks adorable in her gold watch, and I'd love to wear one with wool sweaters and elbow patches this fall. Thoughts? Would you wear one?

Joanna Goddard said...

yes, this one she's wearing above is michael kors--he makes great ones. (and i love him on Project Runway, too:)

Elaine said...

I say yes! I have a friend who wears this oversized Michael Kors gold watch. Looks so elegant an effortless :).

i love the idea of oversized watches but when i actually tried one on it felt like it was eating my hand :( ah well! xo

like, like, like ;-)

Alessandra said...

They're the only watches I wear! I kept stealing my husband's and then eventually just got myself one. Can totally see you one wearing one.

LPC said...

I wear a man's Rolex Cellini, with a brown alligator strap. It isn't budget-friendly, but if you find yourself in accessory investment territory, it's wonderful. Jean, white tee, watch, presto chango I look dressed enough for most everything.

Colleen McCorrister said...

I have a rose gold micheal kors one I love it!! I wear it every day!

Diana Mieczan said...

Totally agree and she looks fantastic! The whole outfit is beautiful as well:) Kisses

Emma said...

would absolutely wear one. i think they're awesome. love that tomboy vibe. x

The Sweet Cupcaker said...

I love my big gold watch. It looks good with everything--dressed down or up!

Mal said...

I love this look!

Do! Without a doubt. I think they're terribly chic, esp. when stacked with loads of bangles + bracelets :)

Brigette Olmos-Arreola said...

i love this look, one of my friends is never seen without a Michael Kors watch and she pulls the look off flawlessly!

the gracious gaze said...

I love that!

Kelsey said...

I just bought a mens watch a couple weeks ago and love it. (It isn't gold, so that makes it half relevant to this post). It did take some time to find the right watch with the large face that I wanted, without it looking too big and obviously manly.

M.R. said...

i would totally wear one- i love this look!

Love it! A beautiful friend of mine wears this Swatch one:

AND it looks wonderful on her.

Regina said...

I love them! In fact I asked for that Michael Kors beauty for my birthday coming up in a few weeks- I'm crossing my fingers!

Coté Writes said...

I'm petite yet not a stick figure, so I find anything chunky around my wrists somehow manages to throw that part of my body out of proportion. I love the look, but I just don't think I could pull it off for this reason.

Erica said...

I wear my husband's gold "rolex" (he got it in China) all the time. I particularly love it with a button-up with rolled sleeves.

MyBlogAnnel said...

I love this look!

Kersey Campbell said...

It takes some getting used to, but it's a gorgeous/sexy look :)

Jennifer King said...

Yes, most definitely. It's just one of those classic pieces, even though it's been a classic piece for men until recently. I also love the trench she is wearing. I'm on the hunt for an affordable one.

Katie Ann said...

I vote YES on the oversized gold watch. Definite win.

Emily said...

I stole my father's watch when I was about 13 years old and have been wearing men's watches ever since. It's a definite "DO."

i'm leslie said...

I have the exact same outfit, but somehow I don't look quite as chic as this beauty! ;)

Blue Is Bleu said...

I've only ever worn large men's watches because I prefer the look of them to the dainty little women's ones. Although my husband decided to 'steal' a couple of my watches and put links back on them. He's lucky I love him hehe

Tragic Sandwich said...

I've always liked oversized watches, although I rarely wear one--I tend to be a minimalist when it comes to accessories, which means that not only do I not wear many, but I don't even own many. And while I do have a couple of watches that I like, right now both need to go to the repair shop!

Helena said...

Yes, I would certainly wear one!! Have one in silver, but would love to have in gold too :)

saraalana said...

I would love to get the MK Watch...but it's a little pricey for me. If I had it, I would wear it though!

Pamela said...

i've always worn one, even before it was "trendy." ergo, it bugs me to no end that it's so in right now ... pshhh, i've been rocking that for ages!

BP said...

I just got the most beautiful rose gold michael kors watch for my birthday and I love, love, love it. The most surprising thing is that I get the most compliments on it from men.

CC said...

Ohhhhh, I so badly want this watch for my upcoming 30th birthday. My concerns are that it is pricey and I'm wondering if it's too trendy or something I will wear forever.

Heba said...

I'd love to try this for fall

I would definitely wear a men watch! :)

I wish $45 were "super cheap!"

meesch said...

I've wanted an oversized gold watch for forever now! I think they instantly dress up any outfit without looking too formal!

I always LOVED when women wear men's gold watches, seriously it's one of my favorite accessories!

Hà Hải Anh Graphic Designer said...

The answer is YES YES YES. I recently stole my Dad’s Tissot metal watch to satisfy my crave for Marc Jacob’s watch but alas, it is not exactly the same feeling.

Stephanie said...

I LOVE this look and my dad has an awesome gold watch from the 70's that he offered me, however I have the tiniest. wrists. ever! Not even a lot of women's watches fit me, its pathetic. But, my wife bought me a proportionally sized women's gold watch for Christmas last year and I wear it almost everyday, I love the darn thing! It goes with everything and adds instant glam to a ponytail and Hanes t-shirt. :)

Shani said...

I love wearing men's watches. When I was a little girl I would wear my father's watches all the time.

sumslay said...

I love mine and get so many compliments on it! They do take some getting use to, but I think anyone can pull it off!

The MK one was out of my budget, so I got the Fossil one. Since it's a trend, I didn't want to invest too much in the look, but I've had it for a year and a half now! http://www.amazon.com/Fossil-ES2421-Gold-Tone-Stainless-Multifunction/dp/B002NUJ3GM

Galipette. said...

Yes! I've been wearing my late grandfather's watch for years~ it's not only a fashion statement, but also sentimental.

xo,

Kasey said...

I'm a big fan, but I actually recently purchased the Michael Kors Runway watch in Rose Gold and have gotten so many compliments on it. It's perfect for someone with fair skin like me :)

LeeLee said...

Love the watch styles by Michael Kors.

Prescott Perez-Fox said...

A million percent yes! As a man, I can't say why but I love when women wear men's watches. Perhaps it's because I always viewed women's watches as so pathetically tiny. They never made sense to me from a functional point of view — so perhaps I'm attracted to the girls' attractive sides.

The Belvedere-Alyssa said...

I also loved the Michael Kors one, but wasn't sure how much i'd wear it. I bought a cheap version at Walmart, of all places, and get compliments on it daily! Such a great fun piece, highly rec trying one out for fall!

Bailey said...

I wear my the watch my husband's father gave him for his 21st birthday. I love it - the toughness of it. I would love a gold one too!

Katie @ Noodle and Boof said...

Love it! I love chunky men's jewelry. Especially when it's gold.

jen fuller said...

Aren't huge gold watches fantastic? I think they are so vintage/chic/classy! I can't get enough!

Caroline said...

def a "do" - i adore!

Wendy said...

Yes! I love this look and have been sporting it since I was in highs chool (I'd sneak my dads watches and wear them out). :)

Joy said...

She looks fantastic.

That's Not My Age said...

I've been meaning to start wearing a watch again - bored with rummaging around in my bag for my mobile phone! It would have to be a big chunky man's watch, you're right they do look sexy.

reneemudd said...

Trend or no trend I will forever wear my grandfather's wristwatch. http://reneemudd.tumblr.com/post/9058404930/finally-brought-my-grandfathers-wrist-watch-back

Jessica Wray said...

I got a oversized gold watch two years ago as a gift. One of my favorite wrist accessories.

Ashley said...

I just bought that watch in Rose Gold on my Flirty/Dirty/Purdy 30 Birthday trip to NYC in June. LOVE!!

Notes from Holly St. said...

yes! a friend of mine has this exact watch and it looks great with everything. would love to have one for myself this fall.

juniper said...

Love it. I have this one and wear it every day:

http://www.amazon.com/Michael-Kors-Quartz-Champagne-Goldtone/dp/B002IT28OM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1315333753&sr=8-2

Get lots of compliments though people also ask me if its a men's watch. Most of my jewelry is gold, but delicate. I love this contrast.

Designs Good said...

I do like the look on others, but I haven't worn a watch in years. I don't like the way it feels and I haven't needed one since owning a cell phone.

Victoria said...

I love everything about this outfit!! x

Joanna said...

I, too, wear my chunky gold Michael Kors watch all the time; I get quite a lot of compliments on it. I like how it contrasts with my dainty lady wrist. Haha.

Boo Hazard said...

HUGE fan of gold watches! I've had my gold Swatch watch (yes SWATCH!) for over 4 years now and I have gotten SO many compliments on it. I like the MK one too but I feel like it's been everywhere these days.

Here's the Swatch one:

I've been wearing the same silver Swiss Army men's watch for 13 years now. I love it. To me, it's just classic. I love the proportions and the tomboy aesthetic of it. I'd love a gold one, too!

ana {bluebirdkisses} said...

I wear an oversized Michael Kors rose gold watch, like in here http://www.bluebirdkisses.com/mom/fashion-mom/fashion-counter-stripes-fall-look/
and I get compliments all the time. I wear it with T's, jeans or even structured work dresses...it works!

Kathryn said...

I love the very similar Michael Kors & Marc Jacobs gold watches - they're both made by Fossil - but question their quality.

Victory Paper Designs said...

Absolutely! I love rockin my boyfriend's wardrobe and even featured a men's gold watch in a tomboy chic post!

I LOVE this look and LOVE this watch. My friend and I actually bought these watches from Michael Kors in Soho over two years ago and since then it's been non-stop compliments. I've also been asked numerous times though if I'm wearing my boyfriend's watch....

Haley{PairsandPours} said...

love my big rose gold michael kors watch. a few people have said, it's so big for you! but I can't get enough of it.

melliebay said...

I wear my Michael Kors boyfriend watch EVERY day. I get tons of compliments on it and I love it. It looks good with everything, especially super girly stuff. :)

yikes - my silver men's watch will have to do. how dare this girl be so cute in her trench and high bun ! such an appropriate outfit for the wet, cold day !

Andrea said...

Love that look. I recently got my Michael Kors watch, which is oversized and very man-ish. And I love it!

Now I'm on the look out for a gold round face watch with a honey brown leather strap! Also going to the men's dept first for this!

Anonymous said...

I bought a fossil rose gold watch, which I have yet to wear, but I still I love it and it was half the price of the MK .

Maria @ Orchard Bloom said...

I's for sure wear one. I love the michael kors ones. and this whole look is awesome, i love the classic trench.

Yes yes yes! I have a gold oversized Michael Kors watch that I wear all the time! I adore it and feel like it adds so much to my outfits. You should indulge!

Brodie said...

thats so funny, i was JUST looking for one yesterday! I saw this photo of an Olsen twin and loved the oversized gold watch...

Elizabeth Gilmore said...

I would wear the the whole ensemble. Love it!

Liliana said...

Oh my gosh Joanna, you read my mind. I was just looking at these online and have decided Im asking Santa for one this Christmas :) Love, love, love!

Eleni said...

I love my michael Kors watch, though sometimes i feel a little like Tony Soprano!!

Arlene said...

Oooh I love this look! I'm one of those small-wristed women and I think the key is to find a proportionate oversized watch for yourself. Bought this one ( http://www.amazon.com/RELIC-Taylor-Gold-Tone-Multifunction-Watch/dp/B0048LVXY4/ref=cm_cmu_pg__header ) early this year and I love it. I wear it with everything.

BARGAIN BEX said...

i have a big ol' clunker of a silver watch that i wear everday, religiously. i love the way it screams 'look at me' from my teeny-tiny wrist. it's a style bargain staple for me (i scored it for under $20 at a local payless shoe store!) and always will be.

Gemma said...

I wear a very cheap gold Casio watch and I love it. I've been very tempted by the Michael Kors watches though...

Nora said...

in europe are the old-fashioned casio swatches in, i guess since last year. it's an understatement. i have this watch in gold and silver and love it! i like to wear my golden watch with a blue/white striped sweater.

Lauren Kent said...

Gold watches are just divine, hopefully for my birthday I'll be purchasing the gold Michael Kors. Yay!

Ainsley said...

random inquiry, since watches are on topic: Does anyone know of a leather multi-wrap banded watch with a digital face? I can't find one anywhere (even designer, above my price range). Any ideas?

Kristin said...

i have the big whopper michael kors one and i love it. there was one step larger which i felt was too big for me, although i loved it. the one i have is still big, i get compliments on it all the time. i call it my 'grandpa' watch.

the sweet crusader said...

i love this look but feel like its gone too "trendy" and everybody and their mother has a big clunky watch!

Erica M. said...

Love over sized watches. I have been looking for one in my style and price range for ever now.

Snappy Di said...

These are great! Why squint to see what time it is when you can have a bold faced dial that shouts what time it is. LOVE IT!
I wear a Baby G watch... has a large dial, but sportier.

AlinaH_RD said...

I've been wearing men's watches for a while now. :)))
My 10 yo Swatch just died so I got a men's Citizen Eco-Drive with a black leather band. I'm 5.2 and I have a small wrist but because the watch is not big and bulky at all I think I pull it off rather well. :D Love the classy, simple look.

rosepetalsandlace said...

I bought myself a rose gold Micheal Kors one and am obsessed with it. I am pretty tiny so really oversized one's overpower me but they have a medium one that looks perfect.

Anonymous said...

i have been eyeing a men's watch on amazon - rubber and water resistant and cheap - just in case the kiddos decide it's their new favorite toy. We'll see how it goes!

question - are colored jeans still in?

Oversized Michael Kors watches on women are so chic

mandyface said...

Menswear for women is always chic. Esp when gold is involved.

Lidia said...

Saw a similar trench at C&A in Paris recently...dang, should have gotten it!!!! p.s. yes love the gold watch! classic!

Kimia Kline said...

i would totally wear one :) have been waiting for my dad to get tired of his 30 year old rolex and buy something new so i can swipe it!

Loafers said...

When it comes to mens watches my dad's first pick is Rolex or Timex maybe because of it's durability and quality.

Sydney said...

why not :D
i love how when a girl tries on guys' wear it looks cool but when a guy wears a ladies' thing then uh-uh ://// lol ;)

Gold watches are simply cool. These look trendy yet sophisticated. But I cannot understand why this Dutch girl is wearing a men’s watch when there are plenty of finely-crafted women’s watches available? For more info., visit: bestwatchbrandshub.com
