Is that what they were doing? Trying to locate a Rolex AD with stock?

I'd happily keep the blue BB58 without question.

Well in that case I would probably just sell or re-gift it. No sense having a watch you won’t wear.

I would be honest and say I hate this, but I really appreciate the gesture. Maybe we could go out and exchange this one for something we pick out together that I'll like and wear often.

Then you can always associate whatever you get with that memory, and have something you're proud to wear.

I've done this with gifts from my own dad. I find people are usually glad to accommodate exchanging a gift for something you'll like better. Unless your family dynamic is very different.
