    I think you are overestimating the general public's interest in watches. Who would care if it's a homage or brass razoo?

    +1 Citizen Women's FC0000-59D World Time A-T Eco-Drive Mother-Of-Pearl Dial Watch

    I wanted to get my wife a nice automatic watch but we realized that she couldn't be bothered with fussing with one. I ended up buying her a Citizen FC0000-59D and she loves the look, but more importantly she loves that she doesn't have to worry about setting date, time, daylight savings, etc.

    Well. Some of these... Ball .. preowned. second one is a GMT. Preowned gives you so much scope.
    Tritium gives always on visibility.

    I have not read all the previous post, but she definitely need a GMT time of watch. No doubt about that ! GMT watch would be super duper useful ! Too bad I don't see any GMT Grand seiko for ladies on the japanese website.

    Someone posted the Oceanus above, and I'd be inclined to source out one of the white dialed versions of the S100 series. A little more feminine and still elegant.

    There are a few models, but some might be JDM and hard to source:

    OCW-S100-7a2jf - all white and silver, has romans at 12 and 6

    OCW-S100-7ajf - blued hands and indices

    OCW-S100P-2ajf - same as above but MOP center

    OCW-S100G-7ajf - rose gold hands and indices

    Pro - titanium and lightweight, 90g will feel like a feather.

    Con - titanium and will likely scratch easily if banged up.

    Do you have a model that is? I can't find it on Ball's site.

    No. They are discontinued. This is one of the Engineer Master II series, the GMT. If you want to buy it from me you can always make an offer.

    Another vote for the women's Citizen World Time AT. They aren't nearly as gaudy in-person as they are in photos. Got my wife the stainless/mother of pearl/blue jobbie and it's her go to watch. AT syncing means it's correct to within 0.002sec, basically all the time (it auto syncs at 2 a.m. every day). Sub dial for showing home time. You can switch between local/home time on the main dial with a single button press. Keeps track of DST too. Wears big, but thin, which is another plus.

    Aaaaand - they go on sale quite often so you can get a pretty good street price.

    My wife wears it every trip she goes on (last year was 100+ days on the road) and it's stood up to all the airports and factories and test labs it's been to (she's a mechanical engineer).

    They're ridiculously cool watches at the price.
