Michael Kors watch and diva kinda dupes (Aus)

I'm not the type that wears watches. Usually I just grab my phone to check the time through out the day. Recently, I've been loving arm candy and a watch with some hot bracelets can make a plain outfit more refined. I went into a mad search looking for an oversized watch. Michael Kors watches had a design appeal to me that out shined the other brands. The one I purchased is called the Ritz Chronograph Glitz watch (what a fancy shmancy name). What mesmerised me most is the subtle pearlescent face. 

Where to buy?
In Australia, we don't have a physical store that sells Michael Kors products but his watches are sold at Myers and David Jones. Buying it physically in one of these department stores is gonna cost you more. My watch is the MK5020 and it is being sold for $359 in Australia. The cost in the US is $225USD. You can purchase through Michael Kors official website through their online chat customer service or by phone. No online store is open yet. Shipping for a watch alone to Australia is $30USD. Still considerably cheaper than buying from a department store here. 

Kinda dupes for females
Not everyone wants to shell out that amount for a watch and when I was browsing diva I noticed the similarity of some of their watches to the Michael Kors range. Click image for link.

Not exact but the diva version (left; available in silver,rose gold and gold) is $29.99 vs Michael Kors Runway watch for  $225 USD.
