It has been some time since I have been on the forum but I wanted to share. I got engaged several months back and of course gave my fiancé an engagement ring. We had talked several times about a wedding rings for me and I told her I don't like rings. She really wants me to wear a ring, so I said that is fine, I will wear a ring when we are married. She asked me what type of ring and I said I was find with a simple white gold band. She said that the difference in my ring and hers was quite large so she asked (knowing I love watches) if I would want an engagement watch? Well now we're talking! A few months have passed and we have both worked from home for the last 6 - 7 weeks due to Corona-19, only going out when necessary.
This morning like many others a package shows up for her and she rushes to the door and scurries to the bedroom and tells me it is something for her sister and I didn't think twice about it. Then she says she just received a call from a photographer she has been trying to get in with to take engagement pictures of us and he had a cancellation and could fit us in today. She asks me if that is ok and of course I say, that is fine, whatever you want baby! I take a quick shower and ask what to wear, she picks out something and hands it to me and I walk into the closet to get my shoes and she asks me if I will wear my Rolex?
Quick back story, I purchased a new sub in December hoping to fill a void from one I had stolen many years ago, It is not the same watch and it did not fill the void. I don't wear it and I don't want to, don't know why but just go with me here!
Back to the story, In the closet she asks me to wear my Rolex and I say No, I don't want to, she says she doesn't understand why I won't wear that watch but If I won't wear that one, would I wear this one and she hands me a Rolex box... I ask if she got my sub out and she said No. I opened it up and to my surprise it is a Datejust 41, with a white dial with the fluted bezel! I have been looking at this watch for a few years and today, thanks to my wonderful, smart, beautiful, loving fiancé, I now own it! Icouldn't be happerier and I am so lucky to have such an amazing woman in my life.
It just goes to prove, good things happen to those who wait!
