    Name a watch to compliment either a Sky Blue Safari Suit and pith helmet?..or clogs and flares?

    Hey folks,

    I'm heading to another 'Bad Outfit' fondue soirée next Friday night but want to put in a decent effort. I have my genuine super slim fit sky-blue safari suit and my uncles pith helmet on hand...but I think it could benefit from a watch of some kind....of which I don't have.

    The other option is an outfit with clogs, brown flares, and a terylene shirt...but a matching watch would also be great. (Shoe ideas also appreciated).

    Any other ideas or photos much appreciated, cheers.

    A field watch of some sort? Maybe on a hideous baby blue NATO?

    Yes yes or even a pocket watch of some sort? I'm looking into what these guys used to wear. I'm not sure if there was such thing as a safari or explorer or hunting pocket watch?

    Personally I think of British colonialism so a large (preferably gold) pocket watch with a scene engraved or cutout from the front cover. Alternately, a Reverso. Either way, having a monocle that also makes an appearance as you squint every time you go to check the time is a must.

    You may have to make an emergency request for the Blue Whale...

    Just reading the title I immediately thought AP Safari ROO but I am guessing that might be a tad over budget for a theme party... In the real world I would say a Seiko SNK80X on either a worn NATO or some really exotic looking strap like a hornback or one of the snakeskins.
