    What watch do you wear on first dates?

    TLDR: So what watch do you like to wear on a first date? What wouldn't you wear?

    I've been on a few first dates in the past couple of months which has been fun. I've noticed that I've fallen into a pattern where I have a couple of shirts I will choose between, but I always grab my best watch which is a 2500XL Planet Ocean. It fits me, looks nice, says I like nice things. I very occasionally get a complement on it but for the most part I think it flies under the radar to most people. Recently I've been thinking of getting my first Rolex, the BLNR, which is very blingy in comparison. That started me wondering if I would sport it on first dates or not.

    The IWC Mk XVI is my go to first date watch. Classy, but understated. I rarely wear the Rolex on a first date, mainly just to not potentially send a negative message. Most women don't care about watches, but I figure, why create an issue unnecessarily?

    Once I brought out the big guns and wore my holographic stegosaurus Jurassic Park watch; first date, which I was pretty pleased about.
    I love dinosaurs, and I wore my original JP film crew tee to match it and sadly neither got a mention by him. Such effort to dressing, and no remarks.
    Boys are meant to be dino-obsessed, too!

    Depends on who she is and where we are going. If she's Asian then something classy (Omega, Tag) or practical (G-Shock), if she's Aussie or European then something interesting (forum project watch) or cheap (Seiko 5, Komandirskie).

    I get matching a watch to where you are going, the clothes you are wearing but to your date's ethnicity? Any other ethnicity pairings you left out or have you limited the field of play to what you mentioned? Would love to know the rationale behind this "system".

    I agree.. depends where I am taking her, whether it's night or day and what I am wearing.. dressed up or more casual. Date's ethnicity? umm ????

    If it were day date, lunch or some kinda day activity probably wear my IWC pilot chrono on canvas. Night time date, either my PAM005 or Speedy

    I haven't had a first date in 8 years.
    I would wear a Nomos Club because it's my favourite watch.

    Last time it was the Seiko SKX013, but that is going to be sold as it has been replaced by an Rolex Explorer 1. So going forward, it will either be the Explorer or a vintage Speedy. Neither are for showing off or a conversation starter, but if commentated upon, both reveal a lot about my personality that I can then share.

    Interesting question and I hope we will get some equally interesting thinking/rationale behind other people's choices.
