Obsession: Rose Gold Watches! Get one for less! I paid $20!

8) Fossil Rose Gold Chronograph Bracelet Watch $135

Have you jumped on the Rose Gold train yet? This past Spring, Rose Gold became a new obsession in the fashion world. From handbags to shoes and accessories, it’s been the total rage. With the abundance of this pale copper colored metal, many watches have been launched in this girly hue. Just about every watch brand has a few Rose Gold options, but you can find the biggest selection of styles from Michael Kors. The average retail for a Michael Kors watch is $250. Some styles are a little more expensive, and a select few may be a pinch less. Out of all of the department store brands, the least expensive one I’ve come across is from Fossil. Number 8 in the above photo is a very cute option for half the price of a Kors at $135.

Now, if that’s a lot to invest in for you right now, you have other options. When I’m low on funds, eBay is my best friend.

If you search eBay, sorting the search results by the lowest price first, you’ll see a lot of results for Rose Gold Watches from Hong Kong. I have ordered jewelry in the past from Hong Kong, but I dread the lengthy shipping time, especially with something I’m really looking forward to receiving. Yes, I’m very impatient.


So, I searched within the US and found a seller that only sells watches and watch accessories based out of Texas. The seller has a pretty decent variety of watches that are available in Rose Gold. To view the full selection, click HERE.

The design I went with was the “Matalic Designer Style Fashion Watch – LDS9201“. There were 19 different colors to choose from, but of course I picked Rose Gold. The current price for the watch is $16.99 with $3.50 shipping and handling. So I paid $20.49.

I’m really happy with the watch. In the photo on the sellers page, it didn’t state what brand the watch was, but it turned out to be a Geneva. You may or may not be familiar with Geneva Watches, but they are trendy wholesale watches that are sold pretty much everywhere – even Target. I recently even spotted them at Forever 21, but they sold out extremely fast. (You can refer to Cheryl’s post where she mentions her F21 Rose Gold Watch HERE) What’s great about them is that they are very inexpensive and the quality is pretty good for the low price.

The watch is a really good fit. Typically watches come a little loose, and you may have to take out a couple of links, but I don’t have to take any links out for this watch. I sometimes prefer a watch to be a little loose, but it’s very good if you have small wrists. I wouldn’t consider myself to have small wrists.
Here it is on my wrist. I paired it with a three thin gold bangles (I believe they are all from Forever 21 last year) One with peach-pink detailing which I think is a color that looks fantastic with rose gold. (I apologize for the green reflection on the watch, I took the photos outdoors and the watch is very reflective)

I purchased this watch Sunday night (the 14th) and received it today Thursday the 18th. I’m very happy with the shipping time and I would purchase more from this particular seller in the future.
What do you think about the trend? Love/Hate it? I personally am loving it and can’t wait to shop around for more accessories. I love that it’s so versatile and can be matched with silver and yellow gold!

  1. I have #5 from your first pic🙂 LOVE it! it was worth the splurge
    word of advice – do not wear jewellery on the same arm as the watch.. it gets really scratched (it breaks my heart when it happens)


  2. What a great post! Rose gold is really popular right now and I've been wanting a Michael Kors watch but have been dreading the price. This seems like a great option, thanks for doing the research and providing the helpful links.

  4. That looks freaking AWESOME! I never really paid attention/saw any rosegold watches out there, but you make me want to go searching for one! I love how you paired it with the bracelets. Looks gorgeous.



  5. I absolutely love these rose gold watches.. Being half hispanic, my skin tone has a reddish tint to it, so this type of gold looks fab on my skin color.. I'm glad its finally coming back into style! YAY


  6. FYI: Fossil makes Michael Kors watches. Rose gold clashes with the yellow undertones in my skin, but they look fab on everyone else!


  7. OMG thank you soooo much for this post hun!! Have been wanting a MK watch for ages but the price tag makes me wanna weep!! Will def check this seller out, thank you!

  8. Heya i'm for the first time here. I found this board and I find It truly useful & it helped me out a lot. I hope to give something back and help others like you helped me.

  9. Just an FYI cheaper watches like this look just as pretty as expensive ones BUT if you wear a watch every day then you might want to splurge a little. I just started my freshman year of college and I needed a watch because none of my classes have clocks so I bought a rose gold Geneva watch from the mall, and yeah it looked beautiful, but I have been wearing it every day for the past month and its starting to turn silver and making my wrist green. I still love it, but I am buying a more expensive watch from fossil pretty soon. Just letting everyone know.
