    I am jealous, these actually look great.
    It is certainly more contemporary and attractive to me than the Oyster perpetuals she wouldn't let go of.

    I like them too, although that's probably because they are not very feminine (the sharp lines are too masculine).

    All of them, except the white model, could be worn by men and nobody would ever notice that these are lady's models.

    That's the nicest lady range for a very long time.

    These are very nice. But my wife doesn't like them for some reason.

    I thought 36mm was Mogwai-size?

    Are they 36mm then? Good size for a lot of ladies.

    I asked the missus, she likes the watch, thinks it's a bit masculine, but looks good. However she hates the strap, thinks it looks cheap

    The possibility of being able to borrow it occasionally had not been overlooked! :). But for me alone... a) it's quartz, b) it's a 3 hand "Carerra", c) has "lady" in the title.

    First she liked, then when I mentioned it's for women she denied.

    My 15th wedding anniversary is at the end of August. The modern (as opposed to traditional) gift list deems 15 = "Watch".

    Mrs BA already has a nice two tone diamond Carrera (imagwai would approve as it's an auto) so I'm looking for something a little different. One of these could fit the bill nicely.

    But I'd really love to NOT hear the words "Have you got the receipt?" after unwrapping and I think I'm chickening out.

    I may end up wrapping an old Roamer I have knocking about (as a representative token) and then give her a little catalogue of models I have considered.

    I'm not surprised. Looks like a women's watch designed to appeal to men...

    Mmmm... others could say it looks more like a men's watch trying to appeal to women.
