    Kors got me fooled again, at Costco.

    So i am in Costco looking at watches and see this watch,

    It's not really my style but looks nice. I looked at the watch(but oddly enough not the brand) and my eyes shifted to the price and i see $139 and i am thinking "hmmmmm, that's interesting, wonder who makes it" and then i saw the dreaded name. Michael KORS.

    BTW, Costco now sells some serious watches, i don't understand why the website does not show all the watches they sell in the store. Good Seikos and Tags, someone in here wrote that their Costco has an IWC.

    What's so dreadful about that? A number of large design houses like Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Kennith Cole, Ferragamo, Coach and others offer decent quality, reasonably priced, nicely styled watches with Swiss quartz movements, some with Swiss mechanical movements, for those on small budgets. I was in Spain recently and such watches were very common with the ordinary man on the street. Nothing wrong with looking good for less, and bragging about price. And other design houses like Louis Vitton, Ralph Lauren, Bulgari and others have entered the real of truly fine timepieces, using JLC and even in house manufactured movements.

    We'd rather brag about Pateks, GOs, and Zeniths, but there is room for all.

    My advice would be to walk away, resist the urge to make an impulse buy and save your money to buy the next tier of watch that you really like the look of. Many of us have been there and done that and recognize that walking away from impulse buys gives you money to buy nicer watches. You guys newer to this sickness can benefit from our foibles. Jmho

    Good grief! If you like the style why not buy it and enjoy at that price??? What difference does it make whether MK or some other name is on the dial. It wasn't made by that company and it should be a perfectly good watch.

    I refuse to buy watch from a company that does not do them.

    Michael Kors watches are made by Fossil, and Fossil also makes Armani Exchange, Burberry, Diesel, Emporio Armani, Marc Jacobs, Michele, and Zodiac watches. They are decently made, and if you don't pay too much for them, then what's the problem? My wife and I have a few Coach watches, and she also has a Burberry watch, and they have been reliable, well made watches for the price we paid for them.

    Costco has been selling serious watches for years.

    That's just like not willing to date an attractive woman who happens to be your type, just because you think her name is funny...
