Not really. I work in a casual techy environment, and even as a consultant they expect to get a creative/geeky looking guy, even tucking my shirt is over the top But I do find my smaller and thinner watches extremely work -and everyday-friendly, more and more. The MUT Moon gets a lot of use in the summer, just as perfect with jeans/chinos as a with a suit. My watches (and their owner) tend to thicken out a bit in the dark months (which to be fair, are 9 out of 12 in my northern corner of the world). Larger chronos and tool-watches are perfect with sweaters. In summer, rolling up my sleeves, I enjoy my smaller watches, 38-39mm is perfect.
So basically it's just a matter of lust. This too
Both fantastic watches (as I think we've discussed elsewhere in TWAT?). The rose gold has a kind of old world chic to it; the grey dial is very distinct and handsome (given that many other dress watches tend to have silvered/white dials or black ones). I can see the lure of trading in one of your existing watches to fund this purchase. What else do you have in your collection and how does this stack relative to your other watches? For example, if you have another dress chronograph or moon phase watch, it doesn't seem unreasonable to turn one of these over for a really top drawer 3 hander like this.
Hm, I better go back and find that discussion!
I have a PP 5712 with a moon phase, and it is certainly versatile. I also have a SS Daytona, a "dressyish" chrono at least. I think perhaps I bought the JLC Master Chrono in a fit of "I can't find the rose gold chrono I want the most". Which I now have, in the AP ROC. (Famous last words of course.)
The thing is that I'm not really looking for the perfect dress 3 handed dress watch. I have a Pie-Pan Constellation and an heirloom Certina that sees most of the serious suit action. I like the understatedness and class of the VC, not necessarily for its intended use.
