There are times when I wear a watch that I like but I find myself eager to change it at the end of the day. These are no longer going to be kept. There are currently eight I own. Nice watches but just not a perfect fit for my tastes.
I realize that not every watch is appropriate for every situation. The ones I wear on a fishing trip are not going to be the same ones I wear to a wedding. Now, if I had the coin for some of the higher end watches, they could be, but that's not happening at this time. The best example I can give is a friend who wears only one watch, an 18K Rolex Datejust. He can and does wear it no matter what he is doing. From afar it is magnificent. Up close the gold is gashed, cut and worn. He will wear it until he kills it then just go buy another. It is the ultimate utility/dress watch for him. I just don't have the coin to NOT baby an expensive watch.
That is the way I treated my Titanium Luminox. Never gave it a second thought and it was worn 24/7 for over ten years, no matter the situation.
When I wear a watch, I want to know that if it were the only watch in my collection that I could wear it daily and be happy with it.
Does that make sense to you guys?
