    Gift for the wife, what you guys think of this one?

    My wife always was good with me buying my watches. Some of which I purchased the last few years that were expensive enough Im sure some wives would of kicked husbands out of the house for . She used to wear quartz designer brands like Kenneth Cole and such. I always wanted to get her a few notches up but she didn't seem to care , but I did. As a WIS I simply could not have my wife go around with these watches LOL. We found an outlet store last year that had huge discounts on Movados, a brand I started out with many years ago and still have a soft spot for. We wound up getting her a quartz 800 series which runs great, highly durable, sapphire crystal and water resistant. I still wanted her to experience owning a mechanical watch. I know she would be upset if I spent multiple thousands(originally looking at 2nd hand Rolex or new Tudor models, because she is a little clumsy she said she would be too worried to wear it and she isn't an enthusiast about watches anyway. So the hunt began for a ladies automatic watch from a brand that has a little history (important to me) for a good value. Not as easy as it seemed. Always thought Hamiltons were a good value. Automatic movement and even a display back with diamonds under 1k! Feels like a pretty solid watch. So this came in the mail today. Going to save it for the weekend and wrap it up. What you guys think?

    Nice watch.

    But better buy sth she cares, or its just another your watch on her wrist.

    There is no such thing as a collector's watch.

    Really nice watch - reminds me quite a bit of the Seiko SARB Cocktail time, which is a good thing.

    It looks too glosse which makes it look little cheap.

    I think its a really nice choice. As mentioned by others, it has a nice balance of sparkle and elegance.
