Well, our wedding anniversary will only be on the 23rd, but since I was sitting on these watches since May, and Monday we'll be traveling abroad, I decided to speed things up a bit:




Later on I'll make a more detailed post on my Retrograde, here let me focus on my wife's watch. It's quartz, with a 50 m depth rating (I think) and a JDM model. When I started looking for a pair of watches for us my habitual Orient dealer showed me pictures of it and I fell in love with the guilloché-like work on the dial. And in the flesh it looks gorgeous!

The best part is that my wife adored it, I was kind of worried because this is her biggest watch. But she thought it looks "casual chic", so I chose right. I was astonished at the size of the bracelet, it could easily fit my wrist before I removed quite a few links. I was wondering that maybe this is in reality an unisex model, but I really can't be certain. On me it looks ridiculously small, but being the first "woman's" JDM I ever handled who knows.

The important part is that she loved both of them, and we'll be traveling with them on our wrists to our honey moon ;) .

You "kids" I hope you have a great anniversary, were are you going for the Honey moon ?

My 42 cd coming up early November and in all honesty i just don't know were the years have gone, I still think of her as the beautiful young girl i saw at the local fair 47 years ago and she tends to think of me as the fat bellied balding grumpy old man i am ;) ;)

Nice watch choices for you both.

Thank you! Obrigado!

The best part is that I think she really liked the watch, since she's still wearing it non-stop since last morning :great: .
I was a bit apprehensive, since my wife is not a WIS, so there was a chance that she wouldn't appreciate it like I hoped she did.
