Yeah, Im sure. However you want to excuse it. Better get the ring. I'm on your side. I want you to be happy.Both must be one-watch lover, the wedding watches must be worn 24/7 so preferably bracelet & automatic. Meaningful & romantic than rings as it has movement, it is alive.
Aren't you one of the heads of the forum? Shouldn't you be saying yes get an engagement watch, bridal shower watch, meeting with the wedding planner watch, rehearsal number 1 watch, rehearsal number 2 watch, bachelor party watch, wedding day watch, a new watch, a used watch, a blue watch, wedding band watch pair, driving off watch, honeymoon flight watch, etc, etc . . .There is a lot of symbolism and tradition behind an engagement ring that a watch does not have. And showing a ring to girlfriends, mom, sisters, etc., is pretty important. I'd say leave the watch for a first year anniversary gift and stick with tradition.
