When it comes to female fashion and high end fashion, few fashion industry observers have not heard of the name Michael Kors. Indeed, after several years of success in the apparel industry, the brand power of Michael Kors has spread beyond female fashion. Now, the Michael Kors imprint can be found in all sorts of accessories including female handbags. It is important to keep this in mind when reviewing the Michael Kors Quartz MK5191 Womens Watch. This model, and most MK watches embody the distinct philosophy of this designer. What philosophy is that? Accessory versatility.
Michael Kors watch design philosophy stands out from the competition because it is aimed at working in context with whatever else you are wearing. This should be the focus of accessories. Unfortunately, many watch designers may have missed the memo and it is not unusual to find women’s watches that have designs that scream out or otherwise try to hog the limelight. Talk about getting the whole point of accessorizing wrong. Accessory pieces are team players. They make your whole look appear better. They don’t hog credit. They don’t make a mad dash for attention that causes chaos with the rest of the items you’re wrong. This is why it is no surprise that Michael Kors is making such a powerful impact on the women’s watch market, he gets how apparel works. Again, it is not surprising given his background in decking women out in the very best clothing.
With its relatively thick wrist band and its its thick-looking face, the MK5191 sends out signals that it means business. It accessorizes women’s business suits and other official apparel quite well. If you going on a night out on the town, this thicker time piece design also looks good if you are wearing a coat or decked out in thick clothing.
It is easy to design the design philosophy behind this watch-it is both practical and good-looking.
Movement Type: Analog Quartz
The analog quartz element of the MK5191 harks back to and refers to more expensive watches of its class without the hefty price tag. This unit is practical and can run quite a while without you having to swap out batteries. While not as classic or as high end as purely manual or automatic winding systems, this model’s analog quartz movement doesn’t clash with its design and market compatibility.
Special Features: Water resistant and chronograph
The MK5191 has some surprising ‘extras’ that add to its appeal. First, you don’t have to freak out if you happen to wash your hands or dip your hands in water when you are wearing this time piece. It is water resistant up to a depth of 330 feet. Think of it this way-if this unit can handle water pressure at that depth, it can easily handle situations where you accidentally dip your hand or watch in water.
Another great extra feature for this watch is its chronograph. This element definitely adds a level of sportiness and daring to this otherwise sleek piece.
If you are looking for a great looking time piece fashion accessory that comes with one of the most recognized fashion brands on the planet and you don’t want to break the bank, you can’t go wrong with this unit. Keep in mind that this time piece is an accessory-it is not a one-size-fits-all watch for all your wardrobe pieces.
