    Absolutely gorgeous, definitely one of my grails. I hope you wear it in the best of health, and when you are no longer in the best of health, send it to me :).

    Just kidding.

    But really, that is just an unbelievable watch. That is close to the end of my "to buy before I die" list.

    How could she not find that completely logical? At least you have planted the seed early.

    I have always been of the belief that if you repeatedly tell your SO that you are going to do something, and she never explicitly says no (implicitly, of course, does not count), then you are able to do such a thing with impunity. Now, with that said, I am currently singlin' and minglin', so it may be wise to take what I say with a grain of salt :stirpot:

    And now, some duometre spherotourbillon pr0n! Going to be honest, initially I thought to myself: "beautiful watch, but don't know if I would be the type to wear it." After having looked at more live pics, I really have to admit that I would wear the hell out of this watch. I love the white textured dial. And the watch is just beautifully balanced.

    I have found that it is much easier for a married watch afficianado to do something like this so long as the wife's desires are satisfied. The good news is that women needs lots of small jewelery pieces over time, rather than one expensive watch in one go.

    In baseball terminology: give her lots of singles and doubles, then you can get your home run when you turn 65 (she will even be happy to do it methinks).

    Such is life.
