DKNY Watch Review
In today’s DKNY watches review I’ll be covering a few points about the history of the brand, the quality of the watches, and who actually makes DKNY watches. As always I’ll be finishing things off by taking a look at some of their most popular watches currently available.
Is DKNY A Good Watch Brand?
DKNY or Donna Karan New York as it’s also know is an American fashion brand that began back in 1984. They originally started off selling clothing but ended up making the natural progression to accessories which of course included a large range of watches. DKNY is a leading brand for designer clothing and accessories with a huge popularity around the world. So to answer your question; are DKNY a good brand? I’d say it has to be a yes. You can learn more about the brand on the DKNY wiki page.
Are DKNY Watches Any Good?
Next up we’re wanting to take a look at the overall quality of DKNY watches by answering the question, are DKNY watches any good? The DKNY watch collection focuses on offering a wide selection of styles and designs to their customers. The watches often combine elegances and functionality to produce beautiful affordable watches that double up as fantastic jewellery pieces.
DKNY pretty much focus on women’s watches, whilst you will find a few men’s DKNY watches available they will be in the minority. Their watches tend to be affordable with pretty designs that are aimed at people who are after a watch more for its looks than anything else. These affordable DKNY watches are still well built, just don’t expect extremely high water resistance ratings or shock resistance etc.
It might come as a surprise to learn that DKNY watches are actually made by the Fossil Group. It turns out that Fossil actually produces watches for a huge range of brands including Michael Kors watches, Marc Jacobs, Burberry watches, and Armani Exchange watches. You’ll find the quality of the build of most of these designer watches to be on a par with each other.
