Which Marc by Marc Jacobs Rose Gold Watch?

So my 24th birthday is coming up really soon (3rd August) and I wanted to buy myself a gift. At the moment I am lucky enough to have my boyfriend, my mum and my dad chip in to buy me this Marc by Marc Jacobs Pixie bag that I wanted and I am very excited about it, although I feel bad since it’s quite expensive (to me anyway). I don’t usually buy myself gifts, but I thought it might be nice to this time around.

I’ve had an increasing obsession with watches and I’ve always loved rose gold. I saw these two watches on Shopbop a few weeks back and fell in love with them. I saw the left one, the Blade Chronograph, first and was sure that I wanted that one, but then I saw the Henry Glitz a little while after and thought I wanted that one instead. I’m now stuck deciding between the two! The Blade Chronograph is chunkier and more manly, but I think I like its simplicity, where as the Henry Glitz is more feminine due to the crystals and I feel it looks more lighter. It’s a really tough choice and I don’t know which one to go with! What would you do? Hopefully you can all help me decide! Deep down I’m thinking I should go with the Blade Chrono though, as my boyfriend pointed out it would probably go with more things. Comment and let me know!

    Both are beautiful but I think I like the right one better. Looking forward to see which one you’ll choose. xo, Christina

    if it were me, I’d go for #1 the blade crono~ it’s more versatile, and does have crystals like the other one but not on the dial. more durable, and just a little more understated elegance. xO!

    these are both beautiful 🙂 but I am more of a Blade Chrono Girl 🙂

    The second is so pretty but the first will indeed be more versatile. If it was me I would consider which one it would be easier to get a less expensive version of that would still look luxe and go for the other, but wither way you can’t go wrong. They’re both gorgeous, loving the rose gold.

      Thanks Sophie! I think that’s true, getting the left one would be best as I can wear it with most of my outfits, the other one might be a bit too dressy for most of my every day outfits and it is quite an investment piece really.

    Hi Lorna!

    I love the Blade Chrono! I’m absolutely in love with the rose gold watches. The Michael Kors ones are really nice as well. I’ve just got one of those for my upcoming birthday…but I know your a Marc Jacobs fan! btw- I know we emailed a couple months ago and I spoke of how I’d love to go to UK after living in Orlando for 18 years….well I’m going to London next year 🙂 super excited to some back to what I’d say is home<3

      Hi Jolie 🙂 Oh yeah I like the Michael Kors ones too, I’ve seen quite a few of them! I just didn’t find one that I was really attracted to like I was with these MJ ones, if there was one I liked more then I would most likely go with that. And that’s exciting you are coming over here next year! How fun! Have you made plans already for what you are doing to do here?

      Thanks Clara, I’m not 100% sure what you mean, but I think it’s supposed to be a compliment, so thanks!

    Love the Blade Chrono…the other one is gorgeous too but I feel like the Blade Chrono looks so elegant!

    On first look I prefered the one on the left with the crystals, but then when I studied harder, I think the one on the right just looks that little more feminine xx

    • Lorna
      July 21, 2012 / 12:07 am

      Thanks Ali! So which one do you think you like the most then?
