I met a friend for a coffee the other day and it was just after he'd been to the gym. As he was running late he didn't shower and instead just came into the cafe in gym clothes. As he sat down he pulled on a hoodie and then slipped on an omega speedmaster professional.
Now, this might ordinarily look out of place with such attire but I have to say he pulled it off well. It reminded me of how Rodger Federer always puts on his Rolex Oyster as soon as he finishes a match. I personally think, as he was clearly just out of the gym, the speedy looked superb with his sports clothes! To me it looked like a cherished item that he was eager to put back on as soon as he could.
A lot of you may also have read the article, linked in another thread, about the guy with the battered rolex who had worn it constantly for nearly 40 years. Whether appropriate or not its another example of 'one watch for every occasion'.
So this got me thinking, what do you guys think is the best watch for every occasion? I know some of you might not think a speedy is an appropriate dress watch but personally I think it looks great with a suit. I guess this is a slightly different slant on the 'one watch for life' threads, but I'm very interested to hear everyone's choices. I'm asking for completely subjective personal option, so there are no wrong answers!
