She hasn't worked in 2 months because we just had a new baby and she probably won't go back to full time work for another year or two. All our money goes into two accounts. One savings and one checking (not including the 401k and 529 plans) Oh well, she means well... I do love the watch. Matches the interior of my car.
You're right, I probably couldn't have bought all that stuff with what she paid for the watch. I think retail for the watch if over $7000 and she got it on sale at Reed's Jeweler's for $4800 total.
BTW, how smoothly does the second hand go around on your watch?
Not as smooth as my Breitlings, but it doesn't bother me. It's COSC certified.
That's almost exactly what I payed for mine too. Nice work!
