Watches from the American brand have long been the staple finishing touch to many an ensemble. And it's easy to see why: The chunky chainlink timepieces in covetable shades of rose gold, yellow gold and silver function as an eye-catching accessory, as well as an affordable time-teller. Sweet.

Giving the popular accessory an update this season, Michael Kors introduces five new variations and styles for spring: The Jaryn, Kempton, Hartman, Kinley and the Slim Runway — all boasting a sleeker body than their predecessors. As for the straps, discrete chainmail (Kinley and Kempton), 
traditional chainlink (Hartman and Slim Runway), and classic leather (Kempton, Hartman and Jaryn) offer a variety to choose from.

Which are our favourites? In line with the brand's current minimalistic code, we're fans of the Kinley which does away with all hours markers for an ultra polished exterior. 
Want a taste of the original Michael Kors aesthetic while embracing the svelte silhouette? That's the Slim Runway and Hartman for you — a gorgeous mash-up of the old and new.
