    Yes, minusplus is right.. a sporty one is much preferred I believe. Soething like Explorer II or GMT II will suit him...

    Advisable to get diamonds a not ? I think it looks classier :P or it's the woman thing. I need some men's opinions
    I like with diamonds...more classy..some guys think it's girly though

    My hubby is a shirt-pants guy for work, mid-30s, probably a daily wearer (he dare don't wear....heehee ).

    I am glad to find such a helpful and useful forum
    can consider the sea dweller, sporty, solid watch, with date, classic ( like the submariner ), can get more discount than the sub-date. Got mine for $7150 brand new.

    hope it helps

    I tend to agree with minusplus.

    A Rolex Explorer I would fit the budget. The Rolex Price List (as at July 2007) listed it at $6500. If you could get a discount from an Authorised Dealer (AD), it could possibly be below $6000.

    Personally, I find the Explorer I having a subtle classy look, if you don't want the sporty look.

    great to know that this forum has information to assist potential buyer where to go for a better chioce such as the one mentioned.

    however, i would put caution in the wind where he scouts around for couple of other shops such as one along beach road where the owner spends hours chatting with rather than selling the watch. some other possible choices are listed in the online shops thread
    Any comments about eBronzeage, Hobbylink, Passions & MonsterTime?

    If not convenient, PM reply also can

    Hi Ms Wife, nice to see a lady member to create some balance in the "yin-yang" environment.

    if yr budget allows it, dun get pre-owned. stretch a little and get a polar exp II, it's a lovely watch. think it's abt 6.5k after discount at THG.

    Yeah hard to find female members here. It's like 99% male and 1% or even lesser females here.

    Err...Polar = White face right?
