My wife's 30th birthday is coming up and I would like to buy her a nice watch.
My budget is $2000, which limits me as far as higher-end timepieces go, so I am willing to buy a used model if it is good condition (Timezone, etc.). I am thinking of something a little chunky (so she enjoys it now), but timeless and not too trendy (so she enjoys it in 20 years).
I have narrowed it down to the following for now:
- Rolex Air King (used Datejusts seem to be out of my price range)
- Omega Aqua Terra (36mm)
- Cartier tank (overpriced for a quartz watch) or Roadster (probably out of my price range)
- David Yurman Thoroughbred (lacks the watchmaking reputation of the other brands, but know she likes this)
I know there is good value in the German brands (Sinn, Stowa, Nomos, etc.), and I have a Sinn 356 myself, but I don't think any of their models are appropriate for a woman.
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? I would appreciate your feedback.
