So... I’m not really sure how this will be taken around these parts, but I’ve now sold off basically my entire collection and kept only my new G-Shock GW-5000 (square).
I just found it so freeing to not have to think about what to put on in the morning, not worry about banging it around at work, not worry about water resistance when swimming, not worry about setting the time/date, etc. I feel like I’ve gotten a big piece of my life back! Maybe someday the bug will strike again, and I’ll be back to buying a different automatic watch for every possible situation, like I had before. For now, I’m enjoying thinking about other things.
My dilema is, I’m getting married in September. I can’t very well wear my G with my suit. I need something else. I’ve always thought about buying a nice watch as a “wedding watch”, maybe having it engraved with the date, etc. The problem is, I have no other use for a dress watch. I probably won’t wear a proper dress watch again for 10 years or more.
Do I invest in a nice wedding dress watch knowing I’ll rarely wear it after the wedding?
Do I buy something I might actually wear again and make it work for the wedding, even if it’s not super dressy?
Do I buy a cheapo that just has the right look for the suit to wear at the wedding and basically dispose of after?
What do non-watch people do for the special day? Not wear a watch? Wear whatever they have and not worry about it?
Anyway, some life coaching here would be awesome from you seasoned pros. Thanks in advance!
