    For the wife.

    Hey all and greetings from Kansas City, so i am looking at two watches for my wife's 50th. The two i have selected are the "Tudor Black Bay with blue dial on SS band" It can be had for $2195 new or t a used Roles date Just with blue dial on SS band from the year 2003,crown and caliber is asking $2950 I am really torn or which way to go budget is a little concern but for the money do i go new over used? Thoughts?

    imho, the Tudor is the winner.

    that upside-down 4 on the DJ would drive me crazy.

    The Tudor is a nice ladies watch. Very elegant.

    By contrast the Rolex is a baroque mess.

    My wife wears a 34mm Air-King and wouldn't necessarily restrict your search to the two sites you listed sites. My wife's wrist size is 5.75". As an alternative consider a 34mm Oyster Perpetual from David SW or even buying from a Rolex AD in your community.

    Either watch would be very nice. Very different.
    Would you feel more comfortable with a new watch . or . would a pre-owned watch be no problem for you?
    New Tudor BB with 2 year warranty certainly has appeal. My wife loves mine and has basically commandeered it for herself.
    The blue dial Datejust is a beautiful timepiece and totally classic. It's also considerably smaller than the BB.
    What size is her wrist? Will the watch size make a difference for her?

    Okay, now for the obvious question(s).
    Is this to be a surprise for her? . or . Can she be a part of the process?
    If possible, it would be great for her to try on a few examples to see what speaks to her.

    Either way, have fun !

    Without wanting to stereotype, but the look of a watch for a woman plays a far more important role than it does for a man. I would definitely involve her in the process, or at the very least, show her a bunch of watches and causally ask which she prefers.

    Re: For the wife.

    Those watches seem like what you think she wants through a man's eyes. It's sort of like her buying you a compact car when you wanted a heavy duty truck. Get her a quartz Cartier. I suspect she will end up being much happier.

    (seriously, did you really think women want Tudors? What's wrong with you?!)

    Take her to Meierotto’s, they have a wide, wide range of watches, including Tudor, Rolex, and pre-owned Rolex. At one point I think they had a stockpile of 26mm DJs, which probably aren’t too far outside your price range — a classic stick dial DJ would be much safe than that upside down 4 example.
