    One Watch for Everything. What's yours?

    I was thinking about this today. If one were to have one watch for a life time and it had to be worn everywhere always, what would the requirements be? From there what watch is a true everything watch?

    A few things that I figured would be a requirement.

    1. Steel bracelet. You really shouldn’t get leather wet and you do need something that can go to a dressy event.
    2. Water resistance. I think 100-200 range is needed, I’m not sure where the line is. But you can’t have a watch you can’t jump in a lake with.
    3. Lume. I’m not a huge fan of it, but there is a time and place.
    4. Timeless. Clearly it can’t be a design that will look extremely dated with time.
    5. At least has a date. I’m not sure when I’d ever need a stop watch (though not bad to have) but I can’t imagine going through life without the date. Really useful stuff here!
    6. Simple design. This might go with being timeless but I feel a simple design is just needed for something that has to go with and be worn everywhere.
    7. Sapphire imo is needed for durability.
    8. And being serviceable anywhere seems important to me as well so ETA movements get a bit of a nod here.

    So after somewhat ticking this all of, I believe my Tag Link Caliber 6 does this pretty damn well. Simple desig, 200 meter water resistance, black and steal is pretty easy to mix….it doesn’t go with a tux and yeah it’s a bit sporty for a suit, but hell people wear Rolex subs with suits today.

    What are your requirements? Love that watch, but I'd struggle with the bumble bee seconds and the brown leather strap (I can't wear black shoes with it?)

    AquaTerra blue 38.5 mm or Rolex Explorer 39 mm

    Bought on bracelet, but with leather waiting in the wings for when wearing a suit.

    One question before I answer, when you say ALWAYS do you mean I can't take it off for activities that I would not wear a watch doing now. IE rock climbing, wake boarding and the like.

    Oh, I'm getting that déjà vu all over again thing. All over again.
    Over a half century of "just the right amount of odd."

    Either a two-tone blue-dial index-marker Rolex Datejust
    or a stainless-steel-case-and-bracelet Grand Seiko Quartz.

    Thanks,

    Well I think the obvious answer would be a Rolex sub, known for being the 'every situation kind of watch'. But for me it would have to be an IWC Mark pilot. I think it can be worn in any situation, case dimensions that should work into my older years, and a high quantity finish. Only think lacking is WR in my opinion.
