Id check out Tissot first, and then maybe citizen if you can’t find anything on tissot

Tissot for sure. Seiko if you don't see a Tissot you like.

Depends on her style but if she’s never worn a watch before or if she has smaller wrists like my wife, I’d throw out Skagen as one to consider.

They are very small and simple Quartz watches but it would be a comfortable for her if she’s not used to having anything on her wrist and look nice for both casual and more formal settings.

My wife just got this one as a cheap travel watch and really likes it. The Milanese bracelet is surprisingly nice for a very cheap watch.

Their website list it as $135 but we got it for much cheaper when they had a sale for Black Friday and I think I even saw Macy’s listing them for like $50

Citizen is nice and cheap. I have a Rolex but I still wear my Citizen Eco-Drive sometimes. Gotta switch it up

Seiko

Also random unsolicited (and possibly unnecessary) advice, but as someone who’s wife is new to watches in the last couple years and having gotten to watch her progression and what she gravitates towards, I would strongly encourage going smaller, lighter, and cheaper for a first watch.

My wife loved the first watch I got her because it was very small (~31mm) and had a really adjustable woven perlon strap. Her next one she bought herself though and was at the limit of size she could wear on her tiny wrist (38mm) and needless to say I wear that watch of hers more than she does at this point because it’s just a bit too big for her.

I’m not saying that she shouldn’t get the watch she wants if it’s a bit big, but I’m just recommending you try to steer her to the most comfortable option size wise that she is still excited about!

Watches take time to get used to and there’s a decent chance she tries it and decides it’s only a once in a blue moon item to wear.

Good luck and try not to get too disappointed if she doesn’t grow to love watches as much as you, but she sounds like a keeper to express interest in a passion of yours!

My wife has this watch and loves it. The dial looks way better in person.

OP, most ADs will give you a discount bringing this watch under $400.
