Michael Kors has designed a new Limited Edition Runway Watch, inspired by the city of Paris. The watch debuted on Oct.15, and is the second addition in a series of destination-themed watches, following New York.
Since working in Paris over a decade ago, Kors says the city has a special place in his heart. Last year, he opened one of the biggest Michael Kors flagships on Rue Saint Honoré.
Taking a cue from the athletic yet glamorous Parisian lifestyle, the watch is very on-trend with a sporty masculine look. It features a chronograph rendered in a rose gold tone, a diamond embellished number 12 and the word “Paris” in script on the dial.
The case-back celebrates the romantic City of Light with an etched graphic of the Paris skyline, including the Eiffel Tower.
The #MKTimeless social campaign has already caused some buzz, with people Tweeting and Instagramming photos of their Michael Kors watches.
Canadians can buy the limited edition piece online at michaelkors.com. The watch will also be available in Michael Kors boutiques across the country.
