    Opinions Needed

    Hi guys,

    I just saw this a while ago and had a chance to try it on:



    Generally, I don't usually bother checking non-autos or even Japanese 2-tone watches but this caught my eye.

    I like the look. It's sporty-elegant and it's just the size I'm after.

    My question is, is it WIS - "taboo" to wear gold accented Japanese watches?

    ***Let's forgo the usual "Wear what you like" thing here and talk about possible negatives/positives.

    For example, diamond/ruby/sapphire-bespeckled watches are "taboo" for WIS and even moreso if it's an Asian watch. Does this fall in that realm of taboo?

    Or do you guys think this is perfectly fine?

    I'm a jeans and shorts kinda guy, just to let you all know. And the only reason I'm even looking at 2-tone is because my wife commandeered my Rolex Datejust and I find that I kinda miss 2-tone.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    If you like it why not?

    Many of my Citizens have gold accents which I hardly notice. One thing is a big gold plated blingy watch and a different one is a steel case with some gold parts.

    You can change the strap, and make it look more sporty. Here is mine, a similar model.

    I think it looks stuffy and gaudy. And the gold plating is going to wear thin over time.

    I'd pass.

    I think it's the gold frame around the date that sets it over the edge for me.
