Ultimately, they’ll help you to find the right choice in the massive collection of Michael Kors watches available to you.

What To Consider When Buying Michael Kors Watches For Men?

As is the case when you’re buying anything online, you need to be sure that the thing you’re getting is genuine. This is even more crucial when it’s a designer brand like Michael Kors. There’s a lot of imitation products out there, made by unscrupulous nasties looking to capitalize on Michael Kors’ success.

Although the proof may well be in the pudding and you’ll only know until your lovely new watch arrives, there are a few things you can do to ensure you’re not ripped off.

All Michael Kors boxes are distinctive and have the logo on them. Although the color, shape, and size may change over time, that’s a constant. If a product has just a plain white or black box, proceed with caution.

On top of this, listings will always have a model number or distinctive name that you can cross-reference at the Michael Kors website. If it’s not showing up, it may be that it’s not a real Michael Kors watch.

What Face Size Options do Michael Kors Watches Have?

The face size or case diameter is something that many of you fashion-conscious men will be interested in. Well, along with just about anyone who doesn’t want to end up buying a watch that has a face that is way too big or way too small for their wrist and arm.

Everything should be proportionate, so the proper size for your wrist is important, to say the least.

When it comes to Michael Kors watches for men, although there’s some variety in size and shape, the face size generally falls around the 42mm to 45mm mark. The difference for many people will be nominal. However, for some, you’ll need to give it some consideration to ensure that you get the sizing just right.

As a general rule of thumb, if you have very slim and small wrists, you’d be best looking to get a watch with a face size of around 40 to 44mm. Whereas if your arms are built like thick pistons, you’d be best looking at the models with face sizes of 45 to 49mm.

We’re not going to judge anyone who doesn’t do as we say, as we believe fashion and accessorizing is a very subjective thing. Whatever your personal judgment and how confident you feel with a particular piece, is what you should also base your decision on.

What Clothes do Michael Kors Watches For Men Usually go with?

This is an interesting question because Michael Kors watches for men often run the delicate line between being complete fashion pieces and functional sports accessories. It really depends on the particular model you buy in some cases.

However, most that we listed here will go with a wide array of outfits and even be perfect for the gym or sports.

They offer proper toughness to work in almost any environment. Then you might see more elegant options, which will mostly work in a formal environment.

Rocking the chinos and white polo shirt look? This will look great. Similarly, if you’re planning on wearing a dapper suit and even a tie, this will pair perfectly together. Some of the more sports-orientated watches on our list, in terms of both the styling and functionality, we wouldn’t recommend wearing for anything too formal.

It’s best to try and figure out whether you’re expecting your new Michael Kors watch to become your new everyday watch or it’s more of a piece you want to wear on special occasions.

Alternatively, you’ll also need to consider what your normal activities are, and when you’re heading to the gym. This is crucial to know which watch works best for your every day, every instance, option.

Are Michael Kors Watches Waterproof?

The short answer to this question would, unfortunately, have to be no. They’re not waterproof in the real sense of the word. Most have a degree of water resistance, it’s true, but it doesn’t count as waterproofing.

They simply have too low an IP rating to count as it.

IP means Ingress Protection and refers to the amount of protection a material or item has against water seeping in and causing it damage.

We do have good news. The Michael Kors watches for men on our list are water resistant to a certain depth. This means that if you’re wearing them, and want to keep your fancy new watch looking fancy and new and in good working condition, you can’t go any deeper than the level suggested.

Most of our list have a water resistance of between 50 and 100m and therefore are no good for the majority of aquatic activities you may enjoy participating in.

If you’re a good swimmer on a recreational level you’ll probably be fine. As you will also be if you’re planning on snorkeling in relatively shallow waters.

Scuba diving and anything more involved in deeper waters is a big fat no-no. We wouldn’t even risk it.

How Much are Michael Kors Watches On Average?

Sadly, there is no concrete answer. However, you’ll see on our list that we only included Michael Kors watches for men that retail for as much as $300 to $500. You’ll also find on the other end of the scale that you can get good quality watches for lower.

Even with many of the frills and features, you’ll find some watches going for around the $100 to $200 mark.

With pricing, particularly with watches of this kind, it really comes down to what you need from it. If there are particular features you need, such as smartwatch and activity tracker-style functionality, you have to accept that you’ll need to pay a little bit more.

More than you’d possibly expect to pay for a model that’s more or less a fancy watch with no bells and whistles, at least.

With the Michael Kors branding on a watch, whether it’s a budget-priced model or one of the high-end releases, you can be sure of one thing – quality. Michael Kors is known for producing products of high-quality across their price ranges.

Where are Michael Kors Watches Made?

Now, this is probably the most interesting question of them all. Although you may think that it’s simple. Michael Kors, after all, is an American sportswear fashion designer.

Yet it really is a lot less simple than that. For one thing, Michael Kors watches are not actually made directly by Michael Kors or his fashion label.

They’re made with the Michael Kors branding by Fossil.

Fossil claims that most of their products come from international sources. For watches, they’re sourced from Hong Kong and Asia. This isn’t to say that they’re bad quality, because we know what a lot of people think when they see Made in China.

Now that you’re more clued up on the ins and outs regarding Michael Kors watches for men, let’s take a look at the beauties we’ve gathered together for you.

The watch has a brown stainless-steel band, slick black dial, and black stainless-steel casing. To be honest, it’s really awesome looking. This is yet another one of the Michael Kors watches for men we just had to rave about. As all the markings are white, they sit nicely against the black and have the added bonus of being luminous.

That means, when you’re in poor visibility, you’ll still be able to check the time and your chronograph dials. As normal with most on this list, the water resistance rating is only 330ft. Of course, this means you can swim and snorkel with it on your wrist, but it won’t cope with much more.

The brown and black is what really sells this to us because it brings with ita sophistication.
