What watch does your significant other wear?

We all talk a lot about our own watches. We talk about the ones we love, our experiences of getting the ones we want, and the overall watch market. But what about your significant other? Does he/she/they like watches too? Have you tried to get them into watches? Or have they shown interest on their own over time? Has it been difficult getting what the way want? 

My wife doesn’t care about the specifics of her watch. She just likes it as jewelry. She asked for a Cartier Tank some years ago and last year I got her the Solarbeat in size small. Now we‘re waiting on the AD to offer us a 31mm Datejust with a black dial. We were offered a 31mm Datejust with a white dial just before Christmas but turned it down. 

Tell us about your SO’s watches and watch stories.

Don't laugh, she's not that into watches. She'll wear a couple others off and on. Her Mickey has faded. I found another in better condition and will have it cleaned and a new custom strap made. Black with red stitching. Valentines gift.

She thinks I need a 9 step addiction program lol. She's like why do you spend soooo much more for watches. They just tell time. Oh well!

Seriously she's great! My wife buys a couple a watches a year for me for those special occasions and they're watches  I "want".

Cheers!

She wears this old Hammy for dressier occasions and a Jupiter moonswatch on casual days.

Apple Watch if anything. She doesn't care about watches.

An Apple Watch. 🤮

It took an awful lot of wrangling to break her away from her Gucci quartz (ugh), but I managed to get her wearing a Tissot Le Locle Double Happiness, and she LOVES it:

all of the ones in her watchbox

Two toned ladies DJ from the 90s to match the one her parents bought me for our wedding though in the last few years she has taken to wearing a steel quartz Victorinox watch (also from the 90s) most days.

I tried to get her into watches and was showing her the usual and thought she was going to go for the Cartier Santos small but she finally told me to stop it and that watches were my thing, not hers. She opted for a handbag instead.

I got this Orient for my wife for Christmas v

And she’s also got this smaller Triwa for dressier occasions.

She’s not into watches at all and I’ll spend more on jewellery for her.

At the moment she wears this one from me every day (weaned her off her Apple Watch.) - I’ve tried suggesting upgrades - but she really loves this  one and doesn’t have the sickness. She would love a two tone Rolex Datejust one day.

·

My beautiful wife wears one of those ladies small, small SMALL things that I cannot even read the time.  Not a clue on the brand, she really  has no interest.

Might have to buy her something?

·

She has negative interest in watches, and with a fair bit of pushing, she accepted a cheap Timex. she still supports me on my deep love for watches, but she is satisfied with her little Timex.

indiglo is great but it’s a cheap watch, and yet is a well built, more or less durable watch that can be worn carefree. So good for her.

She wears this, but only occasionally...

Hands-On Grand Seiko Heritage 44GS 36.5mm Sakura SBGW289 (Price)

I think she only wears it to humor me, as it was a gift from me.  If she had her druthers, she would wear this...

Petite St Mawes - Women's Rose Gold & White Watch 28mm | DW

But, when she showed me hers, and told me that she really liked it, but that the battery had died, I scolded her.

The Tank, it was a gift for a new job + matching watch with myself. 

Usually she's wearing the Apple watch, though honestly she actually uses a lot of the functions so it's her tool watch I guess 🤷🏻‍♂️.
