    Watches of occasion

    I had a question?

    Do you think you need a certain watch for a certain occasion?

    Do you need a Patek Calatrava for a wedding?
    a Solid Gold Rolex to go be a bouncer?
    a IWC Aquatimer to go destroy a South American drug lord?
    a Omega Seamaster to be a super-spy?

    Or will a Rolex Submariner, etc.. suit all your needs?

    Uh, yeah. Next time I contract a beautiful FBI agent to fly me into Columbia on a clandestine mission to take down a drug cartel I'll be sure to buy an AquaTimer beforehand.


    Yes, certain watches should be worn for certain occasions. A Submariner is not a formal watch no matter how many TV & movie super-spies were one with their suits and tuxes. Now let me get the popcorn as we take a slightly new take on the same old argument.


    oh, and no bouncer would wear a solid gold Rolex that I know of - and I'm in Joizey. Bigger ss Rolexes or a Breitling are the watches of choice. The club's boss wears the gold Rolex.

    All of the above, and,

    I wear my G-shock when I am taking out the trash.

    My Russian mechanical when doing a shady oil deal.

    My Big Pilot when I'm dropping bombs on civilians in London.

    But I never wear a Panerai. I have standards.

    welcome, this is a question often asked by new members; with that established most here own various styles of watches. many of the members of this forum collect watches to fill niches and occasions eg. dress watches, sport pieces, chronographs, divers, etc..

    the unofficial mantra of this forum is "there is no perfect watch, that's why we own so many."

    man, i don't know what the bouncers around your area earn, but I vertainly didn't have enough $ for a gold rolex when I was doing the job. plus, you have to take your watch off to tussle, so I never wore one to work.

    As I have commented in the past, it's a matter of comfort. I like something light and thin(ner) to wear under a shirtcuff. Considering what others do, if someone wants to wear a Ploprof with a tux I'm not going to worry about it.
