    hope I'm not in the dog house...

    So, I'm getting married in October. My soon to be wife, who I love dearly, has made it clear that watch buying is not the best way to spend money as we are spending a lot on photographer, catering, etc... I sort of promised I would not buy any watches until after the wedding. However, I plan to buy a Seiko diver 009 (after the wedding) and I just bought a red, white and blue nato strap in preparation for the purchase. Now I'm getting nervous that she'll be upset. It's just a strap, right?! At this point I don't think her issue is about the money spent but the principle of the matter. What do you guys and girls think???

    I think you should re-think a lot of things.

    So you're stressing out over buying a $10 strap?

    It sounds as though you and your fiancé may not be communicating clearly with one another. That is a good way to have a short marriage.

    I think if your future bride were to get upset over buying a watch strap, or, you're even concerned about her getting upset about it, you might want to reconsider your nuptials

    You know that it will only get worse as if you're like most of us, your hobby will not go away.

    Better to ask forgiveness than permission.

    Uhhh, I really don't see how buying a NATO strap could compare in any way to the amount spent on a wedding... If it's what you needed to hold you over, sort of a fix if you will, until the SKX, I see absolutely no harm in it.

    Forget the 009. Buy a MM300. Now! This is your last chance.
    Get yourself a GS too.
