If you are totally well-dressed from head to toe, is it possible to be up to the style forum standards (insert chuckle here) without wearing a watch? I actually prefer not to wear one sometimes, but I wonder if this is a bad idea.

What do you guys think of not wearing a watch?post #1 of 976/21/12 at 1:46pmThread Starterpost #2 of 976/21/12 at 2:00pmI don't wear one. I am actually in between watches. I sold my last one a few months ago and have meant to get another one but haven't found the time (or the money). Honestly nothing has caught my eye. So, in the meantime, my wrist remains naked. I'm sure I'll be back in the watch game soon enough. Actually planning on restoring one of my grandfather's pieces in the near future I think.post #3 of 976/21/12 at 2:06pmpost #4 of 976/21/12 at 2:08pmpost #5 of 976/21/12 at 2:10pmpost #6 of 976/21/12 at 2:14pmThread Starterpost #7 of 976/21/12 at 2:19pmpost #8 of 976/21/12 at 2:21pmpost #9 of 976/21/12 at 2:27pmpost #10 of 976/21/12 at 2:29pmpost #11 of 976/21/12 at 2:58pmpost #12 of 976/21/12 at 3:24pmpost #13 of 976/21/12 at 3:30pmThread Starterpost #14 of 976/21/12 at 5:55pmpost #15 of 976/21/12 at 5:56pmYou can choose not to wear a watch, but keep in mind that it's the watch that will identify you into an iGent category.
In light of the fact that everyone is wearing a soft-shouldered, minimally padded, spalla camicaca jacket, paired with a grenadine tie in a FIH configuration, while rocking flat front pants with 2" cuffs and a pair of double monks (unstrapped of course for maximum sprezz), the watch is the only thing to tell us whether you are a wanna-be or a true baller.
So ask yourself, are you satisfied with being a wanna-be?
