I am ambivalent, sometimes I'll wear a Sea Dweller or Crosswind Special with a suit, sometimes I wear my IWC on a leather strap or the Solotiempo on croc band, just depends on my mood.
How many watches have you got?
I have 10 watches in my current rotation:
On metal bracelet:
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore
Rolex Sea Dweller (black face)
Rolex Daytona 14k/ss (white face)
Rolex Submariner ss (blue face)
Breitling Crosswind Special (black face)
Breitling Crosswind Special (blue face)
Tag Heuer F1 Chronograph (black face)
Omega Seamaster (blue CF dial)
On leather/croc strap:
Bvlgari Solotiempo (black face)
IWC Pilot's Chronograph (black face)
A sub in steel with blue face?
At least have the same style...
You do not like particulary Rolex but you own 3...
Serously what is the need to have 2 same Breit with just a difference of color?
Can you post a picture of your watches?
Sure, I'll post pics of some of the watches when I have some time.
I got the Daytona and Submariner as gifts, the color choices weren't mine, and I would set them up a bit differently if they had been.
I bought the Sea Dweller at a dealer for a very low price, Rolex is not my favorite manufacturer but I do think they are a great quality watch, albeit overpriced.
The watches that I primarily wear (and have here at my place in CA) are the Breitlings, Bvlgari, Omega, Sea Dweller, and F1, I have some of my other watches stored as I don't like having $70k in watches sitting around here.
Where are the others?
What is a sub ss in blue? I do not see...
I have some of them in my safe deposit box.
Submariner, stainless steel bracelet, blue dial.
As long as it's not too horrible looking, I don't see a problem wearing a sport watch with a suit. It kind of gives you that "I may have to hit the silk/deck/water at any moment. The devil take the 7 fold tie, at least I'll make the rendezvous on schedule" look.
I've heard that you really shouldn't wear a watch to a formal event as you're supposed to be having so much fun that the hour shouldn't matter. Or is it to demonstrate that you haven't double-booked another committment since this is where you'd rather be?
drizzt--I'd be careful about so much detail--one of us may come looking for your watches. Back to the original question, I think sports watches, even expensive ones, should be used for sporting occasions. Used to really bug me when Bill Clinton would show off his sport Timex with the black, rubber watchband.
I am under the impression that ladies are to never wear a watch with a ballgown. Othwerwise it is becoming more acceptable for the rest of us except to old school types.
Think of all the poor children you could have fed. Oh well.
Or all of the shirtmakers and suit makers he could have fed?
Money that exchanges hands eventually feeds poor children (in the way of income and sales taxes, of which about 40% goes towards poor families in the way of welfare programs).
I would have probably spent all of that watch money on downpayment for a real estate property (for income), but hey... it was his choice.
Trickle down theory? Instead of watches I'd have steered it into a luxury barge in France, complete with my own watchmaker (doesn't have to be cute) and personal masseur (has to be cute).
There is no Sub SS with bleu dial but gold/ss
