Need some advice

My wife is graduating later this year and her new career enables her to use a watch more frequently. Here is a picture of the watches she currently uses or has used in the past. 

  1. Old Fossil ceramic that she very seldomly uses

  2. Garmin smartwatch that no longer holds any charge

  3. Mini Casioak. After the dog chewed the strap it hasn’t seen too much use.

  4. My throwback colored CasiOak that she usually borrows.

I would really buy her a vintage Air-King or a Cartier but she’s not that kind of a woman and not comfortable with that expensive watches.

Currently thinking of showing her these two and seeing if these resonate.

Any ideas for this dilemma?

Don’t force your hobby to your wife…cuz you will lose more watchbox space for hers 😜… the moonswatch is more fun IMO…

It has been over three years and there are no signs of her to be excited about watches.

Take her on the town. Ask her what she wants and go get it with her. It may not be a watch. End it with a fine dinner out.

Cheers and good luck!

possibly a used Tudor blackbay <36?

Nomos models?

This is a good idea. There isn't too good selection in local watchstores so I'm pretty sure we would end up getting something else.

Good suggestions. She hasn't shown any interest into mechanical watches yet. Quartz might be the way to go.

12 years ago I worked for a Seiko company and every year I’d buy my wife a watch (huge discount annually and before I was collecting, oh well) and today she has none of them.

My experience and after being married for decades, ask her if she’d like a watch as a grad. gift and if so, let her choose. If she’s part of the decision she’s more likely to see the value (not just cost) and appreciate it and feel it’s truly for her and not for you.

Would she want something else?
