Michael Kors V.S River Island Rose gold chronograph watch

Michael Kors Rose Gold chronograph £230 (post here), River Island Rose gold chronograph £28 - Here

The other day I posted about my new Michael Kors watch and now also my 'everyday' dupe of it has the spotlight. The River Island chronograph. 
I wear my MK alot but for those day's i.e work I don't really want to wear it and risk damaging it. The River Island watch is an amazing dupe of it, when put next to each other you can tell the difference by the slight richness of 'rose gold' the shininess, the overall quality and the face's of the two. 

The River Island watch really is amazing, it's such good value for money and doesn't stick out on your arm as a 'High street dupe' I luckily picked up the last one in my local River Island, they also had the normal 'gold' one too. They are now back online if you were un-able to pick one up in-store. 

I seem to have a slight watch obsession recently and I love both of these. I'd definitely recommend the River Island watch for anyone wanting a lovely chronograph and don't wish to buy the MK.


Anyone else loving chronograph's? what's your favourite watch?

  1. I got a Michael Kors for Christmas but I wear it all the time regardless! haha I figure there's no point in having an expensive watch and not wearing it. I had my Calvin Klein watch for about 4 years before (which I think actually cost more than the MK) and wore it everyday and it was fine.

  7. I was quite happy with my River Island rose gold replica but unfortunately it discoloured really quickly and made my wrist itch so I ended up asking for the real Michael Kors for Christmas. Shame as I would have been happy with the RI one!

  8. I have the gold one and I love it, I originally wanted the rose gold but when I saw it in store I couldn't help but think it looked too orange toned, especially on a medium skin tone! They are lovely watches though! <3

  11. That River Island watch is such a good dupe, I may have to buy one myself to save the extra £200 on a real MK one!

  13. Great Post. I love my Michael Kors watch I wear it all the time but I agree I don't usually tend to wear it to work much I'd hate to break it xx

  14. The MK is undoubtedly stunning but I had no idea the River Island watch was this similar - cheaper looking but still beautiful!

  15. It's really quite smart to have a 'backup' of your fav, especially if it wasn't as huge an investment. I have a huge Skywatch watch, it's great because it's a divers' watch so it can get wet, therefore doesn't need a backup!
