Michael Kors, an iconic sportswear designer, is one of the most recognizable names in practical American fashion. With six years of experience at a French fashion company, Michael Kors introduced his first line of womens-wear in 1981. That marked the beginning of a legend. Since then, Kors has grown to become synonymous with ready-to-wear clothing for men and women alike. Michael Kors watches inherit the tradition of sleek design while incorporating classic materials and watch movements. Popular collections employ trendy materials like rose gold and tortoise (as you'll see below), or introduce a cheeky play to boyfriend styles and classic bracelet.
Here are the 10 finest Michael Kors watches of all time.
