    Looking for a watch for my girlfriend

    My girlfriend has started taking an interest in watches after seeing a few of mine. Looking for a ladies watch is a tougher task than I expected.

    At the moment, she really likes my vintage omega pie pan connie.

    Here are the criterion:

    silver dial and silver markers
    relatively thin
    28 to 34 mm
    priced from $200 to $650.

    She doesn't care too much about movements. Also, I guess the watch should be somewhat dressy.

    You'll have better luck bringing her along to choose.

    Watches are too personal to buy for others.

    When i bought my Panerai, i had no idea she would like it so much that she kept borrowing it from me. Eventually, it became hers and i had to buy another one.

    My point it, you'll never know. Rather than spending the $$ and get a disappointed look, why not buy her one she picks?

    Gifting your own watch to her would be a much more meaningful gesture than picking a new one from the store.

    Wow. Thank you everyone for the response!

    The dilemma is that she likes the vintage look, feel, and build, but she wants one brand new. I tried offering her the connie, it's worth the investment if I am allowed to expand my watch collection LOL, but she doesn't want to take it.

    The Tissot is nice, but she said it looks too "modern". I will keep looking and will update this thread with pictures and info just in case some lady has the same criterion.

    What about something a little more timeless. I'm not sure if it would look to current though.



    Or;


    Just a couple Omega suggestions.


    Tudor makes some really nice ones as well.
