    Now that would be something to put in the "things that impressed the opposite sex" thread.

    Paul Fussell, in his witty Class: A Guide Through the American Status System, observes the following about watches:
    The general class rule about wristwatches is, the more "scientific," technological, and space-age, the lower. Likewise with the more "information" the watch is supposed to convey, like the time of day in Kuala Lumpur, the number of days elapsed in the year so far, or the current sign of the zodiac. Some upper-class devotees of the Cartier tank watch with the black lizard strap will argue that even a second hand compromises a watch's class, implying as it may the wearer's need for great accuracy, as if he were something like a professional timer of bus arrivals and departures. The other upper-class watch is the cheapest and simplest Timex, worn with a grosgrain ribbon strap, changed often: black ones for formal wear are amusing.​
