    I can't believe this!

    This place is so strict on every rule. Must only wear x with y. Patent leather for tux. Dress belt must only be be 1" to 1.25". Dress for the occasion. Etc. I'll agree with these rules for various logical reasons.

    But these same strict people don't want to wear a dress watch for dress and a sport watch when wearing sport (sport coat, casual, lounge, etc).

    Dress watch is meant to be worn with dress clothes. Sport watch otherwise. I know you love your deep sea diving 50+mm multi timezone sparkle metallic bracelets with 3 shades of gold, but it is way out of place much of the time. You cannot pair these watches with everything. It will often look tacky, no matter how expensive the brand.


    I disagree. I don't wear my dive watches when I wear a suit all the time, but on the times I do, it looks very good. I also wear a dress watch with my suit. Just depends on my mood on the day.

    This is a sports watch and I have no problem wearing it with suits.
