Marc by Marc Jacobs Marci 36MM Rose Gold Watch

Beck, Modest Mouse, and Cage the Elephant--oh my!

I was recently in New York for Governors Ballmusic festival, and was lucky to find a great pickup at the Marc by Marc Jacobs store in SoHo. I've been on the prowl for a rose gold watch for a while, but I haven't found one that quite tickled my fancy. The Marc by Marc collection rose gold watches are very nice, but most of them have the brand name plastered all around the face of the watch in bright whites or in colors. Personally, I'd rather have something that is not as loud or self-advertising. I was lucky to have found the perfect watch in Manhattan!

This Marci36MM Rose Gold watch is discreet with its circular, mirror-like watch face, and same-tone brand name which acts in place of normal watch face numbers. It's also sleek with its linked-chain band. It's very comfortable to wear, and when worn in heat, it doesn't make you sweat too intensely. The band is smooth, the watch made out of stainless steel, and doesn't cause irritation, which is important as I have extremely sensitive skin. Overall, it's a beautiful piece, and is as eye-catching as it is discreet.

What kind of watch is on your wish list?
