    Do I Wear My Luxury Watch to a Neighboring Town?

    The lady LAT and I have plans to visit the farmers market in an adjacent municipality and after seeing a few ruffians skulking around the organic radicchio and kale, I'm nervous about wearing my bonobo-themed masterpiece amongst the serfs, lest they snatch it from my graceful, aristocratic wrist.

    Should I lock it in the safe or dare I flaunt it at the peasantry and risk some popinjay stealing and pawning it to fund new rims for his hooptie?

    Yes, you should wear it. There is a good chance you could trade up with no questions asked.

    The poors and ne'er do wells will never learn their proper place if they are not given the opportunity to see their betters out and about with their raiment and accoutrements. Leaving one's finery at home only sends the message that one is frightened and cowed by the chance of highwaymen about. When one travels away from one's manor one brings along footmen and horsemen so visiting a neighboring village should be perfectly safe and comfortable.

    You're exactly the sort of popinjay I was concerned about!
