If you’re looking for a watch to take to a job interview or a casual meeting, you might want to put the MK8372 high on your list. This imported timepiece is understated without lacking personality or impact. It connotes class and restraint. Exactly the kind impression you want to project in casual or job interview settings.
Pennant Brown Design Type: Men’s casual
Sporting an analog look with imported quartz movement, this watch would go well in all sorts of casual social settings. In fact, it’s hard to screw up with this watch. Why? It sports a tried and proven design that would fit settings ranging from job interviews to first dates to meeting your partner’s parents for the firs time. It gives off all the right signals without bowling people over or making its wearer look like he is trying too hard.
The MK8372 has a two piece strap that is both understated and quietly elegant. Overall, this watch’s design gives the impression that the wearer is comfortable in his skin. You’re not trying to grab the spotlight nor are you trying to obviously be perceived as something you’re not. Still, this watch has enough firepower as far as impact is concerned to prevent you from becoming forgettable. While not exactly the best of class watch for its category, the MK8372 is a credible rendition of a ‘go anywhere, be anywhere’ men’s casual watch.
MK8372 Movement Engineering
Part of the reason why the MK8372 watch seems so familiar is because it uses a classic automatic design. Let’s just say that it uses a design that’s been tried and proven for many decades now. Those older models, produced by more expensive brands, have opened doors this watch’s wearers can now comfortably glide through. There is a sense of ease and familiarity to this watch’s design that radiates comfort and convenience.
The best part is this timepiece is able to convey those classic timepiece qualities of sophistication without the wearer having to take a hammer to his piggy-bank. That’s right-this watch will not burn a hole through your pocket. Of course, a big part of why this is the case is its selection of movement type. Not only is this watch powered by cost-busting quartz technology, this watch also uses batteries. Put these two factors together and it is no surprise this Michael Kors-branded unit gives all the right impressions at just the right budget. That’s no small feat, if you ask me. Why? There are too many timepieces out there that look obviously cheap. Not this watch!
Special Features: Water resistant to 165 feet
In addition to looking classy, calm, collected, and comfortable in its own skin regardless of social setting, this watch also packs quite a surprise. It is water resistant to depths of as low as 165 feet. While I don’t expect too many wearers of this watch to want to hunt abalone or harvest oysters, this water resistance is definitely a welcome feature. Sure, this watch is designed for people who wish to look appropriately accessorized in a wide range of casual indoor settings but contact with moisture is always likely.
Whether you’re boiling a pot of pasta or simply washing your hands with your watch on, water contact is always in the cards. Accordingly, water and moisture resistance is a nice added touch. At the very least, this special feature definitely make this Michael Kors unit more versatile. I suspect that this water resistance would make this timepiece a natural choice for men who do a lot of cooking or other indoor activities that involve moisture or a chance of contact with moisture. A very welcome feature indeed!
Overall value of the MK8372 Watch
Given its movement type, versatile design, and price point, the Michael Kors Men’s Pennant Brown Watch MK8372 is definitely a great buy. You get a nice ‘go to’ watch for a wide variety of events. The time you save deciding on which timepiece to wear to an event is reason alone for taking a long hard look at this watch. Does this mean this timepiece is perfect? Absolutely not. There are always give and takes in any kind of watch buying decision. I am happy to report, however, that whatever misgivings people may have in picking up this timepiece is outweighed by the value it brings to the table.
