Battle of the Brands- Wotcher There!

Hello fellow fashion frugalistas! Here's a new post in my series, "Battle of the Brands!" Today I will be showcasing 5 different watches in rose gold. I don't know about you, but I am IN LOVE with rose gold nowadays. It is a soft gold color with a tinge of chrome/penny/pinky color and seems to go with just about any outfit and is a nice departure from the standard silver or gold. 

Before deciding on which rose gold watch I wanted, I did some research into the manufacturers of the various brands, focusing mostly Michael Kors, Relic, and Fossil. Those were the only three quality brands in my price range. GUESS WHAT?  I was pretty surprised to find that all 3 of those brands come down to one manufacturer: FOSSIL! Read the article here. So, I had no trouble picking the gorgeous rhinestone-studded rose gold watch from Relic. Well actually my boyfriend gave it to me as part of my Christmas gift and I absolutely LOVE it! :)

Again, from priciest to cheapest...let the battle rage! Which watch would you buy, knowing what you know now? Let me know in the comments below!
