My wife wants one also. I like a lot of their watches. Particularly the Legend Diver.

My wife is after the Master Collection 25mm with the Arabic dial and blue hands. She wants it for a daily.

I don't mind the his and hers idea, in their respective sizes.  However, I wouldn't want to wear the exact same watch as my wife, in men's sizes.  But that's just me.  I know lots of guys think it looks great and cool when women wear men's watches (Subs, GMTs, Daytonas etc).  I think women wearing mens watches up to about 36mm looks fine.  Beyond that I don't particularly care for the look, but that's just my personal taste.

But I will definitely keep looking....and Dino, I believe yours is a limited edition, right? It's got that sweet "Paris" on the dial, and also an exhibition back, compared to the current offering from Cartier....do you know the actual case size on it?

Hi Keith,

 

yes, my watch was part of the Collection Privee (it says Paris on the dial and has the exhibition back with rectangular movement).  Only 200 were made in rose gold and 50 in platinum.  I believe its case measures 39.2 x 30 mm.   I'd advise you to try on any rectangular and square cased watches that you are considering, as they almost always wear larger than similarly sized round watches.  There are so many variations of Tanks that I'm sure you will be able to find a manual wind model version to satisfy your desire to own a Tank.

But I've had no problems or complaints when I went out with my wife and she wore my 3970 in yellow gold and I wore my 3970 in platinum. 


Guess that doesn't qualify for "identical" since the metals are different...

Actually I think the fact that the metals are different (and the straps) make that a very different case for coordination--it actually sounds pretty awesome. Obviously it would make sense for one of us to get the gold one but that's 3x the expense. frown.gif

I'm not gonna ask the Duchess for her opinion as it might plant the seed to some serious expense. smile.gif

Yes, we were out having drinks last weekend and she decided to try on the 15400. It immediately became "the one." I resized my SS Sub for her to wear and that only added fuel to the fire. She don't do hand-me-downs.

I'm with you, I gotta talk her out of this or distract her with something else. I think I would feel ridiculous. She's getting revenge on me for always wearing the same colors as her when we play mixed doubles (which I think is pretty funny).

Well, the problem is she is dead set on the AP bracelet, and her wrist is much smaller than mine, so sharing is not really practical. I even tossed out the idea of a Daytona, but nope, she just has her heart set on AP. I considered giving her mine and getting something else but there's nothing I like in this price range as much as the 15400, not even close.

Was it the Borg that said "resistance is futile"?

Nice little off shoot here. While not looking to deflect from it how does the 'better half's' watch, regardless of compatibility, shape up to yours?

She da poor relation?

Well, prior to my two very recent acquisitions, she has had the nicest watch in the house for about the last 5 years (SS 36 mm DJ, white dial romans with WG fluted bezel on jubilee bracelet). I had sold my Daytona around 2007, and was primarily wearing my SS Sub daily and my PAM 112 on weekends. I didn't think that a new watch (or 2) would draw that much attention or envy but apparently she has developed a new passion for watches. LOL

i fail to see any problem with this idea whatsoever.

well if size is good, and you are cool with quartz, why not?

No problem at all, TC. I'm glad your wife has gotten the bug. You guys can continue to enable each other, which is good for future postings on TWAT icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
