The problem with having the ability to size watches is that would probably be a two-way street. She's pretty casual about wear and tear on watches to the point that I don't want her wearing my Royal Oak or my DDII (the Sub or Panny take a beating pretty well and those don't bother me as much). The patina after a year or two on the PCLs will be impressive, I'm sure. The other one she's eyeing is the RG Daytona--I shudder at the thought of what that bezel would look like over time. LOL

I just buy my wife other stuff. She has a Reverso to keep her occupied when it comes to watches.

That's a sound approach and was historically my plan too. It had never been a problem until we started looking at the same damn watches!

This. I dont even think I have ever heard of a DB kop.

Also, great pics, TC and RFX. Damn.

Excellent choice!

I took a look at it the other day and cringed at how much wear she's put on it. Granted, I gave it to her like ten years ago, but still. The back of the watch has a ding in it. How the hell does that happen?

Had to google images that one. Outstanding.

A ding on the back?  Wow...that takes some effort!  I'm pretty lucky that my wife is fine with my hobby and a few of my watches were gifts from her.  She has a Rolex and a Cartier (the Cartier is her daily wearer and it has taken a hell of beating), but in general she would much rather have jewelry or high end handbags than watches for herself.

Not exactly a glamour shot, but puts the size of the Tank LC Extra-Flat in better perspective than the typical close-ups I've been posting.

My wife has a rose gold Jules Audemars hand wound and a Datejust. She really really loves the Datejust and would like to a Cartier Tank at some point... Unfortunately her wrists are really tiny (both her watches are 26mm) so we can't share. She's pretty gentle on her watches, thank the gods.

EDIT.

Just for fun, here are the photos of her AP. The movement is delicious...

The whole thing is fantastic but that strap really sets it off. Soooo nice.

Gorgeous!! I've not seen that model before, it's quite impressive.

My wife's first was a 36mm SS DJ, which is the smallest of anything I'd ever consider wearing, although I've never worn it. She still wears it from time to time but prefers larger watches these days. She's probably wearing this one the most:
