I want to buy dp a present for his 50th birthday and am thinking about a watch so want ideas.

If lots, a Rolex is a fab gift.

Snobby maybe but mine wears a role

Me im happy with a cheap £5 one from the market but men are funny with watches.

My dad will only wear brightling (sp)

I like omega ones

He doesn't wear one. He looks at the position of the sun to tell the time

brimfull Wed 19-Aug-09 16:35:45

I bought DH a Tag for one anniversary. It's the sort that don't need batteries. It's his main watch, and he only wears his old, cheap one, when we go on holiday.

DP has a really nice one we got in France, Henry something or other I think. Sorry that's a bit vague isn't it blush

I bought my DP a Tag for his 30th. He bought me one once and was very keen for me to repay the favour!

ilovetochat Wed 19-Aug-09 19:31:48

dp would love a tag but we are going on holiday for his birthday and im paying so cant spend that much on the present. just want something for him to keep off me and dd.

He has two Bell & Ross watches and a Reverso. He decides what to wear depending on rest of outfit.

I got dh a blancpain for our 10th anniversary

very tasteful, very discreet and hideously expensive ...

MarshaBrady Wed 19-Aug-09 23:19:34

Gosh those Blancpain watches are lovely.

DH wears a second hand (or 'vintage') rolex which I bought him when we got engaged. You can get some of them quite a bit cheaper than new. I searched eBay for watch dealers and then contacted a couple directly to let them know my budget/style wanted etc.

My DH got an Omega for our 25th Wedd Anniv. He chose it himself as there are so many to choose from & a watch is soooo personal. Went to a jewellers where they specialise (the kind where you ring the doorbell to go in & then they lock the door after you & keep all the beautiful watches locked up ALL THE TIME) in Rolex etc. Twas fun & had a nice day out as we went to a town about 1 hours drive away. Anyway DH very pleased and wears said watch every day.
