How often do you wear your most expensive item?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm going to assume, right off the bat, that you spent a lot of money on an item that's also likely to be your favourite, be it a watch, shoes, or suit. Chances are, you want to wear the item everywhere, as long as the situation is appropriate. Yet, with this much use, you're exposing it to safe and rough environments, hence increasing the chances of damaging the item. What do you do in this dilemma? Limit the use of the item, or just rough it?

My item is a watch. It is suitable in a business environment (except the more uptight ones that call for a more understated time piece), but casual enough for everyday wear (my definition of casual is button up shirt, slim jeans, and a pair of boots or basic white sneakers). Naturally, I want to wear it everywhere since I enjoy it so much, but I'm always concerned about going too rough on it.

Rolex Submariner 114060 and I wear it almost every day but usually not while I'm just sitting around at my apartment. I try to be as careful as I can while not limiting my ability to enjoy the item.

My brain and I carry it to enforcement authorities and/or Courts all the time in order to earn more money.

Per the OP, how do you keep it safe in rough environments?

I got an attache made in carbon fibre for people who had loss their control.

In other times, making "fair submissions" also helps.

Whenever I want and it is appropriate to the moment.

I figure if I can't afford to use it - be it a wristwatch, a car, a sofa, a pair of shoes, etc. - I can't afford to own it.
