We went to New York this weekend to see a show and we were early for dinner. We had some time to kill and my hubby was interested in a watch for himself, and so I suggested we walk into Tourneau. We were looking at Pateks and there was one watch he likes and apparently there is a 4 year wait list for a watch that just came out...so we passed by over to the Rolex section. He was looking at some stuff and I got a bit bored and so I was looking at the women''s watches. I neer really loved the typical Rolex, from my high school days, which was the small two toned presidential with a dark face...it just was not my style at all. Then a couple years ago we were in St. Barts and I got an all stainless mid size Rolex, with a flat bracelet and smooth bezel, and a pink gold face. I really like it, it is casual and just right for me. Anyway, I asked to try on the 34mm (midsize?) ladies white gold pearlmaster with the two rows of pave around the bezel and the mother of pearl dial with diamond markers. It was gorgeous and I joked to my hubby, if you want to get me a little holiday gift feel free! So, as he was discussing the watches he liked with the sales guy, I took the watch off and put it on the tray, and wandered around a bit. Next thing I know, I look over at my husband and see him handing over his credit card. I walk back over and ask, which did you get? He tells me all of them, but I still think he is completely kidding. Then the guy comes out to size it, and I am so shocked I cannot even respond! He had them sent since we were going right to dinner and the theater and had no place to put them, so I do not have it yet. I am really excited but it is such an extravagant gift and I a bit nervous about it...it is heavy and substantial and I love it, and did not expect it at all...which I think is what he liked!
