But I'm thinking for when my best friend from college graduates law school in a year I'll get him a real nice watch. He's not into them like me, which is why I figure I'll get him something conservative and simple that he can wear for anything, but is nevertheless very well made: Swiss Made.
So this kind of puts me into the realm where brands offer automatic movements. But for a non WIS, would serving an automatic watch include a side of confusion and inconvenience. he'd have to deal with :
1 Service cost, in a few years it would be a nasty surprise at like $500
2 Winding down, don't wear it enough constantly set it
3 Accuracy, he's not used to normal time keeping variations, which can be noticeable
Would you restrict yourself to giving quartz?
What do you think?
Or, if there's a lawyer in the house, what's a gift you would have wanted/found useful as a new lawyer? (and don't say money for student loans, he's on a full scholarship to the Ivy league, he wasn't on the short bus wearing a helmet like me was).
