Michael Kors Chronograph Watch Review: Gold, Stainless Steel, Glitz, Silicone, Acrylic; Bracelet, Strap

Updated on January 10, 2015

Michael Kors Chronographs

Michael Kors equip many of their watches with the quintessential chronograph function. It lends the timepieces more precision, allowing the micro-management of time, and it influences the aesthetics as well, forcing the addition of subdials (resulting in a different dial) and of push buttons – which change the contours of the case.

Most collections – Goldtone, Glitz, Ceramic (and other materials), and the dressy White Hot – offer at least one chronograph model; each line, however, renders the chrono timepiece different from its kin from parallel sections:


Goldtone chronographs resemble classic high-end Swiss watches, for instance the Patek Philippe Calatrava, Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars, or Vacheron Constantin Patrimony.

The resemblance, of course, is strictly visual, as those luxury brands employ solid gold instead of the lighter gold plating and automatic mechanisms instead of the quartz movements. It's important to stress that Michael Kors are a fashion house, not a watchmaking company: their goal is to create an appearance, and they succeed in it consummately. Yellow and rose gold.

Ceramics have become a hot material in the watch industry during the last twenty years, with the peak only approaching as such top Swiss, Italian, and American brands as Rado, Chanel, Emporio Armani, and others feature it in their watch selections. Black and White colors remain the most widely used; most MK ceramic chronographs will add at least one additional tone, golden or transparent (in the form of crystals).

Glitz and White Hot

The dressiest collections, they incorporate acrylic, silicone, and ceramic, chronographs often playing only a secondary role to the visual effects of the materials and the dial organization. When the watches arrive with crown and push button guards, the architecture reveals clear sports intentions – thus giving the center stage to the chrono function. It's not surprising that in these particular timers, the auxiliary subdials are notably larger.
