Thread: Christmas.... Yeah, I know. Sorry...

    Christmas.... Yeah, I know. Sorry...

    Would like some advice from the ladies in the forum please. Thinking ahead to Christmas and thinking of getting the Mrs another Rolex, particularly this one:

    Obviously quite a feminine model, which is a little outside of my usual area of expertise. I want it to be a surprise, and I know she likes this dial. With Rolex there's a bunch of configurable options (straps, bezels etc) and I would be interested in general opinions of this configuration.

    Thanks.... Getting quite excited actually!

    No worries. Yes, she definitely likes that dial configuration. I don't think they're actually hour markers looking at it face on:

    Do they come in any other dial color? flowers and grey doesnt seem to be cheerful combination..

    some time mother of pearl dial seem to be more feminine... with that much money and future investment, hopefully you could discuss with her so she could help to pick the one her heart desire than a surprise gift that she wont wear to much and spend most of its time in the drawer.

    with several watches that i bought for my lady, the ones she choose seem to be the ones she wear most.. some of my surprise gifts well, resides in the drawer..

    Goodluck on pleasing your wife with a delight Rolex mate!

    Thanks, good advice (which I would often give myself) about checking first. I know for sure she likes the dial. She has pointed it out herself.

    Not my first choice for sure!

    Its the bracelet and bezel combination I'm considering.

    I actively like that dial, and think this bezel most in tune with its cheeky character

    To be fair, its pretty hard to tell its white gold from the stock photo

    (though don't be an idiot dA, did you think they were going to embed diamonds in steel?!?!)
