Any recommendations on a women’s gold plated watch under $500? It’s for my girlfriend who doesn’t particularly care if it’s mechanical or quartz, what brand it is, etc. As long as it’s gold and circular.

Does she currently wear a normal analog watch every day?

If not, I’d actually encourage you to get her something that’s quartz. A vintage omega is what you would want. If she picks up a vintage omega and has to wind it and then set the time each time it goes with her outfit and she wants to wear it, she’s just going to leave it in a drawer.

Unless my read is wrong and she already wears a watch daily, I’d just get her something quartz that can handle splashes/getting knocked around and won’t stop if she doesn’t wear it for two days.

So she just wants something pretty? Michael Kors maybe? Go to Nordstrom or Bloomingdale's and see what they have. Fwiw, I don't see a lot of gold plated women's watches that aren't pretty ugly.

Lol I agree. I’m trying to steer her towards a vintage omega

Any recommendations for trusted websites that carry vintage omegas?

Tíssot has very nice ones gold plated and around that price point.

She’s interested in the Hermès Clipper. Any recs on good websites to look at? There’s a lot on eBay but I’m always skeptical of getting anything there, especially since I know nothing about the Clipper

I wouldn't buy anything "Hermes" off of eBay. It's a frequently ripped off brand, and what are you going to tell your gf if it turns out to be fake and you got it off eBay? If you're gonna get it used, at least look at a luxury fashion reselling site like TheRealReal.

I'm gonna be honest for a min: if your gf is pointing you to Hermes, she's not going to be happy with any $500 watch. She doesn't want that watch because it's a nice watch - she wants it because it's Hermes. I'd buy her something else with that $500.

I'd look at the realreal or tradesy for hermes

We need a lot of help with babies and kids, especially when both parents are working. I know this because i have a 4 year old. But i am still healing from the struggles of trying my best to raise the kid and keeping everything afloat.

While we are planning second, i don't want to be struggling for air like the first time. And i know its going to be even crazier with two kids. I am anxious

So, where and how do you find help? Did you do it on your own, if yes, how on earth without going mad?

Thoughts on convincing gf to stay? 27M dating 28F for ~1.5 years. We knew each other in HS and reconnected during the pandemic.

She’s unwilling to work on things. Such a genuinely talented and beautiful woman, but has trust issues and depression from being overworked. Thoughts on convincing vs surrendering / leaving?
