watch comparison
:: boyfriend watches::

My fascination with watches, and my collection, started when I was younger and my dad picked up for me a Snoopy watch. I ended up losing it and he replaced it with a Lucy watch. I liked it because she had dark hair like me. ::grin::

Since then, I've picked a few Swatch, Fossil, and my beloved Tag. Most recently, I've noticed the "big" or "boyfriend" watch trend in ads, fashion blogs, and magazines. Ideally, I'd love to get my hands on dad's watch, but my brother got that one. So I thought I'd take a look at the three popular ones I've seen...

Coach's watch is made by Movado, and Michael Kors is made by Fossil. The most basic gold tone watch from each brand look similar, the mini-dials differ in function from watch to watch. The strap-to-bezel connection on the Coach watch stands out to me. It reminds me of the way leather straps are attached to watches. I really like the clean look of the Fossil watch, and the pearlescent mini dials. The MK watch I've seen everywhere and while it is popular, I can't get over how the inner circle makes the face seem smaller to me.

Hmm. Decisions.... Thoughts?
