My friend is looking to buy her husband-to-be a nice watch for their wedding coming soon. She asked for my help, since she knows I'm a WIS lol.
Anyhow, after showing her lots of options, she definitely prefers a simple black dial design. Her budget is $2000 roughly. The two watches she's really liked so far are the Citizen Chronomaster and the Ball Fireman Victory (random pics below). I would definitely recommend the Citizen, but the problem is her fiancé only presently has a random Armani watch from a mall kiosk. Like, obviously it's just a fashion watch (I assume it's quartz, but am not sure).
Given that he doesn't presently have a decent watch, and given that I believe every man should have a nice automatic watch, I'm having a hard time definitively recommending the Citizen. The thing is, for her budget, the Chronomaster represents the BEST quartz in production on Earth. She could have the very best for roughly 2k. Whereas the Ball represents a very nice watch, no doubt, but in no respect the best (obviously).
You can see from the design aesthetic what her tastes are. So I am wondering if I'm missing anything? What would you recommend?

And just FYI, I received this in the mail about 20 minutes ago!
