I personally think that the best gift that you get is a wife. Other than that, I wouldn't rally know what to ask for.

I apologize if I offended you in any way.

No, no offense at all Matt. In fact, I think you received a wonderful gift and your in-laws were very thoughtful to pass on a family heirloom to you.

I think an antique would be more to my taste. Preferably something from the 1920-1940 time period. And if she were to engrave something on it (I suppose that is her call) that would be lovely. I'm pretty sure she doesn't want anything engraved on her though!


oh shit here she comes. must go

I suppose that I should refrain from posting any photos of my belongings on SF, lest it be misconstrued as bragging and not the intended purpose which is sharing.

Hardly, Tomasso. But when someone asks for recommendations about a watch under $1000 and probably more likely around $500 and you talk about your $4000 watch (that's what I saw after a quick Google search), that can make you look like a braggart. Matt didn't look at the original post so didn't see the qualification, so I can understand that there was no offense meant. But if you do read the original and then still do that, it's as if you are simply lording it over everyone else. That is rude.

I think a watch would very nice and suitable for the occasion. More so than shoes.

Agreed. When I read iammatts post I assumed that he had misread the thread title(as I have been known to do) and I moved on. Your braggart comment just seemed a bit severe to me. Cheers.

A Hamilton or Gruen offers very fine craftsmanship for a very low price. The best Gruens were called Dietrich Gruens, which had the workmanship of the highest grade Patek or similar. There was also a 50 Anniversary Gruen with solid gold bridges, and everything.

However, I've seen white gold Hamiltons with beautiful workmanship for only about $500.

Zach, are you sure you want to post in public that a new pair of Lobbs would be better than sex with your wife?

I think that he may be ever-so-delicately implying that being married does not, in fact, imply 'sex on tap for the rest of one's life'. I believe that there is an entire genre of wry remarks that alludes to this unfortunate fact.

Would it have been more clear if I had added a ? How did writers portray emotion before the advent of the emoticon? (BTW, that one gets a also)

I knew that you were joking, but thought I'd do an AAAC-esque flourish of a response.
