So I did a thing... it might be good, it might be bad.
I am an Engineer from a blue collar background. I am about 10 years into my career, and find that I must occasionally don a suit. I did a good thing by heading to a men's tailor and taking his advice. My wife says I look "professional" all cleaned up in my suit.
Watches have become a hobby (read growing obsession ). Until last year my only watch was a 10 year old casio g-shock. I picked up a CWC G-10 for a home beater and was wearing the g-shock in my very industrial workplace.
Then along comes a suit. And I realize that my 2 watches make me look like a bit of an ass in the suit. I did the noble thing and (gasp!) abandoned my timepieces while in the suit.
I bought a Seiko 5 SNX427, a bead blasted military watch. I removed the surprisingly nice nylon band and replaced it with a leather calfskin strap. Bango, instant dress watch. I wouldn't wear it with a tux, but hey it passes.
So my questions are...
1 Will I get away with this?
2 What should I do for a nice, but not bank breaking dress watch?
