My wife is coming up to a pretty significant birthday soon and she would like a watch which, as I too got a rather nice watch for the same landmark, seems a rather good idea. The challenge is finding that perfect watch for her. The requirements I have are:
Gold or at least partially gold in colour, she wears very little silver so a steel/silver watch won’t really work
Budget of around £1.5k, maybe a touch more if pushed
A quartz movement. This is blasphemous as far as I am concerned but she doesn’t wear a watch all the time and I know her well enough that she won’t like the faff of an automatic that needs the time setting when not worn. This sadly rules out the vintage Longines/Rolex route I had originally intended to take.
Not too small. She currently wears a Fossil watch which is 38mm ish in size. I think something a touch smaller would be best but I don’t want to go much below 32mm or there abouts.
So please STW watch aficionados, can you help?!?!
