Two personal examples here. My wife bought me a 40 year old Rolex for my 40th birthday, and a ten year old Speedy for our tenth anniversary. I think it's neat that these were made (roughly) when important events in my life were happening. I'm not massively interested in the watches' own history, or that of their previous owners, although I sometimes wonder what adventures the Rolex might have had before we met. I just like wearing something that's as old as I am (in the case of the Rolex).
Now, if I happened to buy a second hand Pepsi just because I liked it, I really wouldn't care less about its history and I'd want it in as good condition as possible so I can start adding my own history to it.
Can your wife call my wife and discuss how awesome it is to own a watch from your birth year? If she wants to nudge her in a direction a Yellow Gold Nipple Dial Submariner from 1985 would be the bees knees. Arguments for the purchase include: 1. My wifes birth year as well; 2. Yellow Gold will match her wedding band and engagement ring; 3. It should fit both our wrists!!!post #41510 of 483123/4/15 at 8:17ampost #41511 of 483123/4/15 at 8:26ampost #41512 of 483123/4/15 at 8:32ampost #41513 of 483123/4/15 at 8:57ampost #41514 of 483123/4/15 at 10:06am
Also vying for wrist time is an older acquisition on a new look strap.
Previously look on shell strap.
