I have 3 Rolex' (2 submariners and Puder's pre-switch stainless Daytona) and bought the wife a gold president. Although she loved it when we bought it, she doesn't wear it all that often. She doesn't like having to keep it moving or reset it after leaving it in her jewelry case for a month. If your wife is a gadget person, she'll love the watch for a long time. If not, plan on seeing it in her jewel box more than on her wrist.
That said, anytime we're going out for the evening I get asked to reset her watch just as we're going out the door.
My advice, since she's a "wonderful wife" and you can afford it, enjoy. The only other thing I have learned is to have the jeweler ship it to you via US Post Office registered mail. If they ship it to you, you need not pay sales tax. This of course is assuming you don't buy it at home.
