 If anyone can pull off that look it's you.  And I agree, blazers with denim jeans make people look like Jeremy Clarkson.
@kimmo I think that's where my mind is headed.  I'll pay a premium for ETA over Miyota or Seiko, but on an entry level watch, it doesn't seem to be worth twice the money.   @Kaplan that is an interesting looking thing in its own right, even though I am more interested in historical rather than fantasy swords.

Welcome back @Jazzmenco, be well!
