    Looking to get wife durable daily wearer, any suggestions?

    I was thinking a 36mm datejust would be ideal. We have 2 small children and hope to have another one soon. I am thinking the steel datejust would fit the job but open to other suggestions.

    I'm looking into getting my other half a reverso. It looks pretty classy and it's got rich history. Also, she thinks the mechanism is pretty cool too. I'm specifically looking at a duetto so there's two faces, but maybe for you one face is good enough.. that way she could flip it over if she's going to be doing baby things and get it banged?

    Thanks for the suggestions. Can't go wrong with any of them. I have a reverso I wear daily, would be cool to have similar watches.

    Bought this for my girlfriend last week and she is very happy! She likes quartz, this is big enough to read easily, yet still very elegant.

    I am just going to take her out to try on a few and see what one catches her eye the most. I think the datejust will withstand the most abuse of day to day life. I like the fact that it is all steel.

    Re: Looking to get wife durable daily wearer, any suggestions?

    Lots of good suggestions in this thread. Does she want a mechanical time piece? My wife has a few automatics but most often wears her quartz Aquanaut and then the cycle of keeping that on because the time is set begins and she'll go weeks without touching her datejust.

    Definitely let her try on a few. I have a buddy who bought his wife a DJ36 and she never wore it because she thought it was too big. He relented and decided to get her a DJ31, and when they went to the AD she fell in love with and left with a DJ28! At first he was upset with the fact it wasn't the trendy and "in the now" choice, but she hasn't taken it off for months.
