    Yet one more Rolex "advice" thread.

    Want to buy a Rolex for the wife and believe the Explorer II would be perfect if they had it in 34mm white face. Even the 36mm would suffice, but again the black is too masculine for her.
    The DJ is a bit too stodgy I think.
    Obviously taking her to an AD would be best, but that is not possible. Discontinued model would be fine too.
    Thanks in advanced.
    use it!

    I know we're trying to avoid stodgy so I may be pushing the boundaries here, but I think this 34mm Air-King with the engine turned bezel is a fascinating watch:

    Also, while the stereotypical Datejust with the stick indexes could be considered...conservative...I've found that Rolex's Oyster Perpetual lines offers more eccentric and colorful dials than any mainstream brand. I've got this watch and it's the only one my wife likes. It's totally OK if you hate it, but her take-no-prisoners criteria is clever and snappy but not flashy:

    As was stated above, the 3, 6, 9 Oyster Perpetuals are a pretty good option too:

    I think the Air King could be a great choice, but when my wife chose one recently she preferred the 28mm Oyster Perpetual:



    Rolex has quite a range of ladies' watches, and smaller men's watches. OPs and Air Kings, Date Justs and OP Dates etc. although I do not personally like Daytonas, white face steel versions wears all and look good on ladies.

    Amazing what a little help from your friends can do.
    I searched for the answer before posting with truly no results. Post here and low and behold I get an abundance of terrific advice.
    YOu guys rock! Thanks.
    I'll post when I pull the trigger. Now I have some leads to research.
    Cheers!

    Re: Yet one more Rolex "advice" thread.

    Recently got a 31mm Oyster Perpetual as a gift for the girlfriend - she picked it out. Black face, smooth bezel, stick markers. The 31mm is a great size for her (roughly 5 foot/100lbs). Mine is the 36mm Exp I, for reference.

    Lots of options with the OP - dial color, markers, bezel.

    I'm not the world's biggest Rolex fan, but I really love it that they make cool watches in the smaller diameters. Examples posted above make the point.
