I was a very very lucky girl this for my birthday, amongst lots of presents, I got a gorgeous new Michael Kors, silver watch. I also own a chocolate brown one, but (first world problems I know) the face was so dark, and the hands were the same colour so it was practically impossible to tell the time on it! It also stopped working about 3 weeks before my birthday, so I was watch-less for ages, which is really annoying let me tell you! The amount of times I looked at my naked wrist to find out the time wasn’t even funny. I know, serious issues in the AG household during the month of March.
My MK watches are the only two I own. I mean, let’s face it, I don’t need to own more than one! I’m not the type of person who changes their jewellery daily, I wear my watch, bracelet and rings all day everyday. I occasionally add a necklace which will be big and bright, but the classic stuff stays on me all the time. The husband on the other hand is a serial watch addict, and would happily spend a bloody age looking at them. Let him visit The Watch Shop and that’s it, it’s like his drug. He will wander between Swatch to Swatch, Casio to G-Shock and he will be indecisive for days. We even managed to find ourselves inside a watch shop in Paris, because, you know, they’re different over there…!
Apparently I’m buying him a watch for his birthday, but I’m not. I will give him money and time to go and pick his own watch because I tell you, he’s worse than a woman when it comes to shopping and I’m not buying the wrong thing! They always say women will go back to the first shop they visited and buy the first thing they had seen, but my Husband will sometimes debate with himself for days over whether he bought the right thing. Days!
He’s always been a bit of a watch addict, I remember when we first got together, those and baseball caps were his ‘thing’. Could have been worse eh! The problem is, we differ SO much on style. I like classic, metal strapped watches, not too big but I do like them chunky, not dainty. He, on the other hand is off the wall crazy when it comes to his wrist wear. The bigger the face, the better. Almost always plastic straps, usually with the mechanics showing in the face and bright colours. We’ve been through yellow, blue, white, orange and I think the next one on his list is going to be a coloured one too. Which is why I would never in a million years be able to pick the right one for him!
If we were millionaires I would probably still stick with my Michael Kors watch, but I know the bloke would go for something like Breitling or TAG (which also happens to be his initials) and I’m pretty sure they don’t come in luminous plastic, so it’s strange that his taste changes the more expensive the watch gets! Although to be honest, he would probably be out buying a new one each month if we were that loaded, and I’d let him have all the time he liked to decide, because I’d be out buying new handbags! I always wonder which one of us GG would be shopping with because she is a watch person like her Dad, so I have a feeling I’d lose out there. Wonder if I could take The Boy handbag shopping without too many complaints?!
