    Finding the Right Tool

    I find myself in the market for a tool watch. Yes the most overused term.
    I've long gotten bored of my fitbit (FWIW).
    Maybe Dress Sport is a better term for what I am looking for but here are the candidates.

    Rebel in me wants this...but it lacks versatility

    outlier decision:
    get this and spend the rest of the money elsewhere

    the Casio is easily the best watch but it lacks a certain gravitas.
    It lacks the Veblen goods feature.


    Bracelet is preferred. Comfort is a HUUUGE consideration.
    I've thought long and hard about the Rolex Explorer I (241270) but I would quite literally feel sick to my stomach and nauseous if I actually spent THAT much on a watch (at this point in my life). I would think of the free time I could have instead

    What about the Tudor North Flag? Great tool watch appearance and can be had in the low 3's.

    a smidge more than I'd like to ideally spend. I'll see what price I can get for it.

    Sinn 556, GS auto, Omega Aqua Terra quartz, or Casio Oceanus. In that order.
    The Sinn is about perfect at the price point. Get the bracelet, too.

    556 doesn't have tegimented tech, GS Auto is way above budget.

    Pity.
    I don’t like it. I’d prefer the Burgundy, Black and Blue.
