Thread: HEW for the wife - suggestions?

  1. #1

    HEW for the wife - suggestions?

    So I've created a bit of a monster when it comes to the wife and watches. She now knows most of the top-tier makers and is kicking the tires on a dress watch. Any suggestions gents?

    Rose gold, 30-36mm, 2 or 3 hander, simple and dressy. Mechanical only, but can be manual or auto. Big preference towards no diamonds. New or pre-owned is fine, but nothing too vintage.

    Fortunately, there seems to be a soft spot in the market for nice dress watches that were sold as men's watches but are now more women's sizing.

    Here's one such piece that she likes.



    What do you guys think?

    That's a nice one. If she would prefer indices, how about this one?

    Does that not have jewels inlaid all around the edge of the case?

    No, I don't think so. There is another model that does.

    Whoops, you're right. Although as diamonds go those are pretty low key and classy...

    Ha ha. My wife has absolutely no interest in watches (or much in jewelry, for that matter). I've suggested getting her a nice watch, she declined. Just lucky, I guess.

    How about this nice Piaget, then? At 38mm, it's on the large side for the ladies, though.

    I was also thinking Piaget. Extra brand cache of being a premier jewellery maker, while not skimping on the horology. Win win
