Until a few years ago I only wore one watch, a Seiko Kinetic I got for my 21st birthday. It was about all I had that was a “proper” watch. I wore it everywhere.
Due to a change in circumstance and a load of hard work I now have a small collection and have achieved my dream of a Tag (admittedly quartz), but my dad had one years ago and this month as a birthday present to myself a Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch.
But since getting the Speedy, I just always want to wear it, maybe it’s the novelty of it being new, or that I have a few different straps. But I find that it goes well with a suit and in almost all casual situations.
So it got me thinking:
How do you choose which watch to wear and when?
I tend to look at the situation for style, then try and pair the colour with other accessories and maybe change the strap if necessary. E.g. I may wear my gold accented Hamilton Openheart with a brown strap with a blue suit and brown shoes.
I have to say it’s a nice luxury to have!
