Hi everybody, I'm about to make a substantial purchase for my lovely wife as an anniversary present and she has tried both models but is still undecided. I have a friend who is going to Europe and he is gonna help me buy the watch. :cool1:

Size wise both can fit her hand but it seems that the Omega in 34mm is a size that is not too big or too small. However, she and her friends have the impression that Rolex is a more prestigious brand (largely due to their marketing strategy post 1970s) than Omega and wondering is it more worthwhile to buy Rolex since it is a substantial amount. However, it would seem that Omega is the watch that gives most value for money though. So we are in a dilemma indeed ! I hope that fellow WTF members can vote or give your valuable opinions. By the way, I have posted this thread in both the Omega and Rolex forums folks just to hear what the current Rolex and Omega owners opinions.

We are not considering flipping the watch over the long term irregardless of whichever we decide, the watch is gonna to be her lifelong partner just like me. :thumbup:

The Rolex gets my vote. It's far and away better looking with Roman numerals as a bonus, plus I have an aversion to arrowheads on any watch.
