Yeah, I don't have a problem with that watch, especially given the more casual nature of that suit. It's not exactly a tux he's wearing.

This is a really strong look IMO. I'm a bit undecided on the PS, and not a fan of ticket pockets in general, but those are minor nits--this is really strong.

Thanks guys - I appreciate all of the feedback. I will definitely be wearing this suit with various tie/PS combinations. I think a solid pale blue shirt works best, so I am not sure I will stray from that, but what do you think?

Some could argue that the Speedmaster is too "large" or too "heavy" for a true business look. I tend to disagree, and think this particular watch goes with just about every occasion. biggrin.gif

But overall darn good.

Purple - green isn't my overall favorite combo but everything us sedate enough that it works pretty well.

1. watch is excellent.

2. purple and green is nice. i think gdl even recommended it to me once.

3. i like ticket pockets.

4. i agree about wanting more tie space.

again, a great fit.

I think no watch technically goes with every occasion. In fact, I think wearing a watch is generally the biggest area of tacky sprezz, and generally a huge fail. Right under pocketsquare fail.

Personally I never wear a watch. I'm not an evangelist about it though.

I don't think a Movado museum watch with a leather band could possibly ever be in poor taste.

Surprised at the Speedy hate. shog[1].gif

People are just saying random crap. It's a fine watch. Looks fine with a suit.

Unless you wear your watch Agnelli style or seemingly halfway down your hand (I'm amazed how common this is), I think the classic Speedy is A-okay at least in the present day*.

* and if you're time travelling, you've really got bigger fish to fry.
