I'm there also. I've got to start paying attention to arrival time at meetings to determine which group, "The watch wearers" or "The other ones" are consistently on time.

I don't like to wear watch with any of my dresses. I always prefer mobile phone to see the time. Actually watch is not looking good in full sleeve T-shirts, it looks good when you wear a half sleeve T-shirt or shirt with shorts.

Not even something elegant like this on a night out?

It is good to be out of the closet. Any watch in silver or gold will compliment any dress.

I wear a watch 365 days a year.

But I'm a snob.

So ask yourself, are you satisfied with being a wanna-be?

  Wonderful point. Watch tells how good a man is at fashion. I have actually made a habit of wearing it now.

When I do wear a suit especially for a formal occasion I don't wear a watch. But to each his own..

I have a question which is actually different to this topic if anybody can help..... In actual real sense, tie and waistcoat should be matched to which part of the dress in particular?

Wearing a watch is a bit like wearing a tie - functionally unnecessary but beautiful.

I have been wearing watches since I was 8 or so (I am now 41) and feel naked without one. Must be a generational thing.

Don't forget cufflinks. I have one set (from Token & Icons) which is made from miniature watch movements, and Tateossian has fully functional watch-cufflinks.

Expensive watches does worth the money, when you can pass on to the next generation and they definitely will wear it. Unlike many another things which needs a lot of money to maintain

 

You must be joking. Mechanical watches require periodic overhauls, which can be very expensive (I paid nearly $1000 for the last one on my IWC Flieger, although the cost of replacing a leather bracelet certainly factored in it).

Since the smartphone can do everything, now I can choose not to wear my watch. I just look at my calendar and I'm all set for the whole day.
