ok, not really a wedding present! it's an engagement present--- we are getting married next year (summer 2013), but for now we are having an engagement party, which is sort of a cultural tradition....big engagement party, the woman gets an engagement ring, the man gets a watch. it's also all supposed to be from the parents. so this is a gift to my fiance from my parents.
my fiance prefers formal dress watches, with leather wristbands (black or dark brown leather), simple/pared down black or white faces, thin watch hands, and minimal branding (no in-your-face logos).
keeping his criteria in mind: i really like the junghans x max bill. http://www.mrporter.com/product/327395 it also seems affordable and good for an engagement gift, as they'll likely get him something else for the wedding.
but as i have less than two weeks now to get this done--- where can i buy this watch, or something else fitting his criteria for a watch in toronto? i just don't have the time to be spending trolling the malls looking for something, or to order online.
my parents were actually supposed to make the purchase, but they have a different aesthetic, and were not quite able to find the watch that i told them my fiance would wear, so i have now taken it upon myself to find and purchase this present. within the next two weeks.
