Yeah I think that's why it's considered most elegant not to wear one: the correct time to leave being when one's lady wishes to do so.
And the absolute incorrect form being to check one's watch frequently, while muttering "how long are ballets supposed to be anyway?"post #43278 of 483125/1/15 at 11:44amQuote:

Actually, no. It's been a while since I took a lady to the ballet, but it was she who fell asleep.
Also, I fancy this simple item for a technically-incorrect-black-tie-watch:
Yes, with second hand, day counter and all.
Five watches is the new four.post #43281 of 483125/1/15 at 11:57ampost #43282 of 483125/1/15 at 12:12pm
I wish this idea would die already. Couple years ago I tried to research it and the best I could tell there was one tongue-in-cheek article done 60+ years ago that everybody picks up on and espouses as the rule.
Tons of vintage pictures from the 'golden age' of formal wear have the men sporting proper dress watches.

"John Mayer's Wrist Is a Wonderland", from yesterday's NY Times:
Made it about a quarter of the way down the page until I was suffocated by the douchebaggery. The guy who bought many? dozens? of fake/Frankenstein Rolexes and others is a "watch nerd icon"? He should just stick his head back in the cardboard box.post #43284 of 483125/1/15 at 12:15pm
Not trying to change your opinion on him but the watch wasn't fake in the sense you're probably thinking. The Rolex he bought had unauthorized or fake parts used during service and therefore Rolex wouldn't touch the thing themselves.

Either way I'd expect a guy who is so obsessed with the hobby and can certainly afford to be fully informed… to be fully informed.post #43289 of 483125/1/15 at 12:27pmpost #43290 of 483125/1/15 at 12:31pm
