I am not worried about the dings in this watch...but the leather strap is not the best choice for sweat.

Gotcha. I though you might have have been missing some sports related features in your watch. Personally I don't, and I run and hike wearing mine, though not when they're on a leather strap.

Because any reason is reason enough..."hmm...I have a reason, and it's cheaper than my other watches, so no guilt..."  The kop-monster rears its head.

 

(logic might otherwise have dictated a $10 NATO, but where's the fun in that?)

I don't like running or swimming with metal watches. That's where plastic comes in.

I'm wondering if every player get one. If so, what would Rory and Sergio do to their watches, since they are sponsored by Omega?

Rory was sporting his Aqua Terra when he ended his singles match.

i'm pretty sure Sergio was wearing a DSOM as well.

When it comes to shoes, Wade for instance is signed to a Chinese company Li-Ning but on his off days he still wears Nikes and Jordans.

 

I don't know about that. :D

DSOM?

 

I played a tournament today... I was 23cm, that's 9 inches, away from winning a Hublot. :(

Look on the bright side - had you worn it, you might have been expelled from TWAT. :lol:

Since it's been pretty quiet here I guess I'll share another possibility for a rose gold dress watch (preferably w/ black dial) I found and actually cheaper than the Moser, VC, Lange, etc...

Arnold & Son HMS1

All in-house and the movement is made specifically for this watch and case and not used in any of their other watches.

I'm not really into that kind of dress watch, so take with a grain of salt, but I don't find that design particular successful. In the rendering it looks like the crown could break off at the slightest contact (might not be an issue IRL). But more importantly, in the wrist shot, I find the design to be incohesive: It looks like it wants to be a dress watch (case material, time-only, exotic strap), but the size of the case, the minute track (I prefer the one in the rendering) and the chunkiness of the hands and hour markers work against it. IMHO anyway.

I'm open to all opinions as I am still on a journey. I post them because I'd like to get peoples opinion and open my eyes on things I may not see or considered.
