Great pics guys! I've always had a soft spot for moon phases on watches.

In your all's opinion, is the Yachtmaster a dressier watch (to pair with a suit and tie) versus a DS or Sub?

DS? As in deepsea?

Either way, I don't see the Yachtmaster as any dressier than a sub.

I agree with tifosi in that the YM is not different than Sub, SD, GMT or any other Rolex "tool" watch.  You get a little closer with the DJ then finally the Cellini as the Rolex dress watch.

It's not dressier imho - the silver dial would be more obvious for a dress watch than black, but the extra colour takes it back the other way.  But if it's not dressier, it is flashier.  I think.

Thanks for the replies. I just saw that one posted and wondered what the consensus was around its use as a "dressier" watch, given it's dial color, which I thought gave it a look more suitable for a suit. I understand it's not a dress watch per se, but given the arguments against (and for, in some cases) of wearing a SD or Sub with a suit, I was curious to know everyone's thoughts.

For a bit of back story, I'm new to the watch game and when looking at making my first real watch purchase, I'm sold on the Sub no-date. The only problem being that I wear a suit and tie to work and worried about this watch's flexibility in those situations. Luckily, I'm not an attorney and my office isn't conservative, so I doubt anyone would even really notice. Not to mention I know a lot of folks on this board wear their dive watches with suits proudly.

I guess in the end, you have to do what you want and what works for you.

Gasp

Are you sure those VC&A cufflinks are ok to wear with that green monster?

You don't want them to be outclassed by the watch...

 

Kidding of course. Looking killer as always Frilly.

To beat the dead horse of suits with Subs a bit more, I personally don't like the look at all (I actually feel far more strongly than that, but who really cares). That said, I'm likely in the minority here who feel that way, and if I'm in the minority on SF, that means a huge majority of people wouldn't notice or care if you wore a Sub (or Sub like watch) with a suit in the real world. So to stay grounded in reality, I wouldn't let versatility keep you from getting what you want since almost everyone you run in to on a day to day basis won't notice/care (depending on profession I suppose).

Yeah, not trying to stir that debate, but your point about others noticing remains true. Thanks for the feedback.

I'll wear my SD or YM with SC and tie but would go with something else if I were to suit up.

I think the YM is "dressier" relative to the sub or SD.

I generally do not like Subs with suits, but I would not go so far as to make a rule out of it. This goes for watches and sandwiches.
