    Wife hates my cheap looking watch

    So I'm at the airshow two weeks ago with my kids and I see a few pilots and alot of soldiers on base wearing these watches that say G-Shock on them. I get home and pop G-Shock into google and WOW tough watch nice price.

    So two weeks and four G-Shock watches later I'm proudly wearing my Mudman out on a Costco trip with the wife and we get out of the car and she looks down and says "Why are you wearing that cheap looking watch?" My pride taking a hit I begin to tell her about it being worn on shuttle missons, frozen, kicked ,slammed etc.

    Well she asks to see it again and said it looks like a watch out of a box of Cpt. Crunch and maybe thats how it got into the space shuttle . Dohhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Oh well I'm very happy with my G-Shocks and plan on getting many many more.

    That sounds all too familiar. My wife says mine look like something I got out of vending machine. I just told her what your wife said about Cap'n Crunch and she's greatly amused!

    Solution: This will be very hard... pay attention for a couple of weeks to her clothing/shoe/handbag... etc. whatever she buys for herself. When she asked for your approval reply with "Why are you wearing that cheap looking [wife item]?" For a coup de grace ask if she saw them on Oprah.

    Result: If your lucky, you get to sleep on a cot in your own garage! Repeat as necessary until your manly bits toughen up.

    Alternate solution: Find a pic of her favorite actor wearing a G. Worth a try, nothing to lose.

    Welcome. We've all been there. Probably even some of the ladies here too.

    Not a problem.

    You tell her 'hey listen I just like the look but eh you're right they suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure are el cheapo watcho'.

    That way she has no problem when you own 50 of 'em and there's a weekly/daily delivery of more.

    LOL, welcome mate.

    I get that all the time from people who say I'm wearing toy watches.

    I love all the bright cool G's.

    Thanks for the welcome messages Took the wife to dinner tonight and wore my 9052-1V, she told me she likes the watch much better since I took the red buttons off. So now I wonder how much she will like me when she finds out it's not the same watch
