I crossed the Michael Kors Runway Watch off my wishlist this summer. With a 38mm watch face, the watch is not dainty, which is great for those who prefer an oversized look (relative to one’s wrist).
The “Runway” is a classic style that rarely goes on sale but is often included in F&F sales or can be discounted using sign-up bonuses.While it is a solid offering by a reputable company, for $250 you are still paying (at least) a 40% markup for the brand name. For those who are indifferent to Michael Kors, you can probably find a watch of similar quality for less.

For those who like smaller watch faces, the “Mini Runway” watch is 40% off at Nordstrom (33% off at Macy’s in gold; also in rose gold).
Michael Kors retail stores will resize all MK watches for free but require the owner to sign a waiver in the event that the watch gets damaged in the resizing process. As shown here, the watch had six links removed.
