Since several were nice enough to offer opinions I'll update... I've decided I can't make the decision on my wife's watch on my own, it's just too personal a decision and not really fair to her for me to decide. So, even though it could mean major pushback from her, I'll take the risk and I'll take her out one afternoon soon and just tell her she has no choice but to pick something Never thought I would spend retail for something like this, but this will have to be an exception.
I also decided on the Sub for myself... Now, Sub date or Sub... LOL.
Thanks for the help from everyone...
Sounds like you have made some good decisions. As for Sub Date or Sub...unless you specifically prefer the date, the cleaner look of the Non-Date Sub is very appealing. Not to mention, it will save you some money and be good practice for getting used to other watches you may own in the future which do not have a date
