Which Watch? [ETA: Thanks for Playing! Decided on the WildCard!]

I was hoping to add a few accessories to shake things up a little bit; and was hoping for some YLF wisdom as to what to acquire next as a watch?

Which one? #1 or #2? 

Watch #1 - Found this one on a Repli-Kate site after I was looking for frocks with sleeves, but this is a watch they suggested as an inspired look of Kate's Cartier. I won't be buying any Cartiers on my budget anytime soon, but I like the clean lines and the blue handles.

Watch #2 - I went into the Fossil store to look for this one today, but they didn't have any in stock (of course, it's Canada) - and so I'd have to order it from the US of A. I like the red second hand; it looks pretty special! The dial is a pretty size and I also like that it has a date feature. I don't usually use the date, but can be handy.

[ETA: Thanks to Echo's suggestion, I did check out the Bulova watches and managed to snag the Fairlawn for a song. MSRP was around $650, and I didn't think it would fit into my budget, but with some coupons and other codes, found it online from a reputable dealer for $123. - Pic #3. Love it to pieces. Ah, the magic of YLF. Love it!]

    #2 is my gut reaction. More different that what you have and prettier.

    My thought was that #2 was the most you. I really like #1 but it seems similar to the silver one you already have, and #2 is a different color palette than your other watches.

    Hm I like #1 for ME, but for YOU I like #2 :)

    Do you wear gold? If you do, #2 is lovely. If you don't, I would keep looking. To me #1 isn't a very good repliKate, and it's a bit heavy for your regular style.

    I love #2 so much!! I can definitely picture this on you... Plus it is just wonderful! :-)

    I like the Cartier look of #1 but it might be because I am more into metal bracelets these days.

    My vote goes for the Ballon Bleu look-alike. Love, love, LOVE that watch. I just bought a Bulova that's similar.

    Gaspy-gaspy - there is a Bulova???? *google plunge*

  • Gracie replied 4 years ago

    I second Aida, I'll take 1 if you take 2. Seriously, I love 2 for you, the colors and proportions will fit you nicely, I think, and it will expand your watch wardrobe.

    Found my lovely! Went with the Bulova Fairlawn; see ETA above. Love! Thanks Echo!!!

    Hurray! I am so glad you found one you love, and you got it at a super price! I chose a similar version with Arabic numerals instead, and I, too, found it for an amazing price. I bought it completely on impulse because the price was too good to pass up!

    I really like this for you!
