Watch Out

I did online window shopping for a watch today. The two-toned Guess watch which hubby bought for me as a birthday gift during one of his business trips to South Korea already turned 5 years old. The Fossil Charm watch that I bought at a duty free shop in Subic is turning 3 this August. So I guess it's time for me to buy a new watch. Specifically, I want a mid-size yellow gold watch with stainless steel material. Below are are a few choices I bookmarked.

Timex Dress Expansion Watch- price not available

I am normally tempted to buy a watch whenever I pass by a Timex store, but ended up buying for someone else instead of buying for myself. See HERE. I like the fact that Timex carries an affordable watch collection and they have stores anywhere in the metro.Next time that I drop by a Timex store, I swear I will buy this dress watch for myself if they have a stock.

This is a very lovely watch. The size, color and price is perfect. I really, really want to have it. However, I have a bit of a problem on how to purchase it. First, I am not sure if I can find it here in PH. Second, if I buy it in the US, I have to handle the tax plus shipping fee and wait patiently before it reaches my hands. Ugh, what to do?

This is it! This is really it!! I mean, just look how lovely this watch is. I'm gonna save every penny I earn online just to buy this watch. Oh please, I need someone to help me buy this in the US because if I buy it here, I think I'll have to pay more, and again, not sure if they have the same style here. Helllppp!!!

  1. ill go for michael kors and fossil :)... 250$ wow jingke.. the price is reasonable.. here is so expensive...:( same style... buy na :P

  2. Same here, sis! I also want a new gold watch, yung malaki ang prefer ko. MK chrono ang isa sa pegs ko but my budget can't afford it. Baka I'll get na lang a Casio gold watch, may nakita ako sale sa mall. :)

    1. Saan may sale ang Casio sis? Like ko din yun. Magandang alternative. Magkano nalang? :))

    2. SM Manila ako nakakita sis. I forgot the name of the store, hindi Time Depot eh, yung isa pa, basta puro relo ang binebenta nila. P1,500 to P1,800 ang range ng silver and gold Casio watches na naka-sale. :)

  3. As much as I want a new watch myself, the one I'm using is still okay pa naman. And I've had this for more than a decade already. Iba pa rin talaga if you wear a watch rather than rely on your mobile phone for the time. But these are pretty fab watches.

  4. Try to go to Lucerne or Secondo in Makati, they have fab watches there (the best of the best) at a more cheaper price. I actually saw this when I was looking for a place to sell my Rolex. There's also one at greenbelt I forgot the name sorry, watch store pre-owned and brand new watches, most of their clients are the upper class..


  5. wow such a watches., because of it, I have thought that I need watch too.. but not as expensive as those.. ^^ remember,im just pooritamirasol

  6. the one with pink detail :)) so cute!
    by the way, I hope you could join my giveaways.. they're easy to join naman :)


Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day!
