I don't like the wording, but don't consider it a deal breaker.

It's such a minor detail, but it ultimately detracts from the overall aesthetics. I really don't like it either.

Heading to Chicago this weekend - any watch related attractions or stores that I should add to the itinerary?

Great shopping and great restaurants...although the sales tax there is brutal...its about 10% in the city IIRC. 

 

The watch store I remember the most from my visiting Chicago in the past was Swiss Fine Time (they are an AD for AP, Panerai, Breguet, GP, Journe, Parmigiani, RM etc.)  They are on Michigan Ave.  CD Peacock was the local AD for Rolex, Patek, Panerai and a few other brands.

There is also a Torbillion right by Swiss Fine Timing. If you head up north on Michigan a bit there is a Tourneau which usually has a few interesting preowned watches on hand. A little bit further north is the Omega Boutique.

Enjoy Chicago!

North Michigan AVE, or the Miracle Mile and you'll hit most of them.

I am having bad, lustful thoughts about a non-approved watch.

 

Actually, about many watches, approved and otherwise.  I think I might be about to do a bad thing.

Between cigar aficionados, we have a saying: "like what you smoke and smoke what you like". If it pleases you, then there's not need to be ashamed that it doesn't meet the criteria of some unknown Internet strangers, because ultimately, you're the one paying for (and wearing) it!

A principle I have demonstrated often on SF, especially in shoe threads!  

 

The more burning issue is that actually I lost my job two weeks ago and haven't yet agreed a settlement, with a  long court case looking increasingly likely.  And I'm booked for a big holiday with the kids next month.  But, I hate to see this opportunity slip by...dammit!

I don't see popularity as being a minus, but then again it's not the deciding factor either.

I am.

Just discovered I have (developed?) a gold allergy. My dad gave me the watch above a couple years ago and now I can no longer wear it without irritation. I was hoping for some suggestions on alternate bands. As of now thinking cognac alligator may be best, but really haven't done any thinking/research on the matter. Thoughts? Suggestions? Makers I should look to? Ideally I don't want to spend a mint but also don't want something that will look bad or cheap. TIA.
