When I first placed my order for the GMT I let me wife choose which version we got. I was torn between the “Topazio Crema” and the “San Marco” and this tie was broken by her selection of the “San Marco”. After 8 months of waiting we now get to find out if the end product matched the photos!
Her: “Ok, so show me which two I had to choose from.” I pull up stock photos of both the San Marco and the Crema. “Are you sure I chose this? I don’t even like red!”
Me: “Yup, you were the tie breaker all those months ago and here is the result of it!”
Her: “Well let’s start this off with I regret this decision; I do not remember making this decision; I should have chosen the other one! [Topazio Crema]
Her: “It’s disgusting; I hate it; I hate everything about it; well everything on the outside at least; the bezel; it’s like a cafeteria tray after a preschooler has smeared it everywhere.”
Her: She is about to keep tearing it apart but stops dead once she flips it over. “The back is cool; the back is better. The back looks nice, it’s more intricate than this one [the Nereide 2.0].”
Her: Flipping the GMT back around she takes a closer inspection of the details commenting that, “The red and yellow bezel is just ugly. Does the 2.0 have this pop up on the bezel [the lume pip at the 12 o’clock]? This one is going to scratch people!”
Her: Picking up our infant she shows him the watch and asks, “How about you Oliver? Would you eat it? He won’t even look at it!”
Her: “I regret choosing this one; are you sure I chose this gross McDonald’s mess? You know what I like more than this watch? Paw Patrol! And you know how much I hate Paw Patrol!”
And that’s it; I concluded some time ago that my wife is not a big fan of certain colors, but I had expected that since she had chose the San Marco that she would have liked it.
