    Which watch to wear with a charcoal suit?

    Watch newbie here who wouldn't have even considered this question until about 2 months ago.

    Just got a new charcoal suit and wonder which is my best choice from my limited (at this point) collection. I know now that an IWC Portugese would be best! Maybe next year.

    So my choices are:
    An old Citizen with gold (color) and band

    New Tissot PR100 with steel bracelet and blue face

    A fashion watch from 10 years ago "Prince - Paris" small case (maybe 35mm) with black face and black leather band.

    Pics of the first two:

    Colour of the suit doesn't really matter. I would wear something on a leather strap to be safe. That Tissot is a bit sporty for me and the Citizen a bit... 80s.

    Definitely the Tissot, and I agree with Kalessin that putting it on a black leather (or even croc) strap would be a nice touch.

    Also, if you really like the IWC Portugese, check out the Parnis (see www.wenping1970.com) -- they have a number of models that are very similar, typically under $100.

    The best watch to wear with any suit is the one that no one notices. Something on a leather strap would be nice but if the weather in your area is quite warm, the Tissot will do nicely.

    I assume a white shirt.....but will you be habitually wearing a tie too? Cuff links? I'm for the Tissot ....as long as you aren't planning on a red tie and gold cuff links! :)
