I like a classy watch, but not enough to go bust my bank buying one.

My watch, which I did enjoy wearing, got real scratched up so I haven't worn it in about 2 years.

Watches have 2 purposes:

1. To tell time
2. To display social status


My phone does the first one just fine and I couldn't care less about the second one, so fuck watches.

I've actually been looking into buying a watch for a little while now, but they're just so damn expensive. I want to get a "casual-esque" one with a leather strap.

It's hard for me to justify the coin on a really nice watch when it's going to be pretty much only for appearances.
#45
Stewie, I agree with you, but something about checking the time on a watch just seems more respectful to me than on a phone.

For instance, in a restaurant, I'd much rather take a look at my wrist than have to take out my phone. Could just be me, though.

Are pocketwatches disrespectful?

I would say not. I think I see where you're coming from, having to pull it out of a pocket, though.

I honestly can't explain why I see checking a phone as being disrespectful

Either one could be construed as disrespectful. Watch watching (lol) usually suggests that you're uncomfortable and eager to leave.

Because phones put you in contact with other people, implying the company you're in isn't good enough for you.

Same reason a person checking their watch (or pocketwatch) whilst you're talking to them is considered disrespectful.

As a general rule, don't check the time when engaged in conversation and you'll be fine. But a watch looks hella classier

Because it just is that's why. In some fine dining establishments, you actually give them your phone before sitting. Being preocupied with your phone is a sign of disrespect in many scenarios, not just dining.

Yea, I thought of this as well. My post was originally a mess. What ended up is a very condensed version lol.

This is something else similar to what I said in my post before I deleted most of it. He just worded it in a more straight-forward manner.

I also agree that you should avoid any distractions during conversation. Phone, watch, or otherwise.

It'd be cool to have a watch, but I have tiny wrists so watches always look ridiculous on me :C haaaalp

I've actually seen a guy pull out a pocketwatch mid conversation and it was rude as hell.

EDIT ^^^ I have tiny wrists as well. Just go to a watch place and have them stick in a hole on the strap for you, it'll cost ya like 2 bucks. And for god sake don't do it yourself.
#57
My father bought one that costs $30,000 a long time ago, he refuses to sell it, because he's an idiot.


I don't like watches. If I need to tell the time, I use a phone/a clock/other people. If I did get a watch, it wouldn't cost more than 10 bucks. Does it tell time? Beautiful, so it does what it should do.
#58
Why not just have a watch to look nice? There's only a handful of things dudes can wear to bling it up. Watches, sunglasses, shoes, belt if the shirt's tucked in. I want to buy a $550 pair of alligator skin Chuck Taylors just to ****ing have them.

When I'm buying a watch I'm not buying it for its time-telling capabilities. I'm buying it 'cause it's a sexy god damned watch.

I have a watch like that but with a dark face thingie rather than it being all light. It looks decent and I can easily tell the time. That's all I need.

I have a super nice watch too but I only wear it when I'm demonstrating my wealth to poor people.

That's actually a damn nice watch.

When I get more money, I'm gonna see if I can get a nice cheap smaller one. But I'll get one.

The one I'm on now is a bit too big for my tastes. Big tachymeter watch.

Anyway, definitely analog, looks so much nicer. I even have an analog clock widget on my phone

I don't just mean for the strap, but the actual size of the face of the watch emphasizes tiny wrists. It seems like nice watches always have a big face, whereas smaller faces belong to kiddie watches, or really colorful-weird-un-cool-hipster watches.

That's okay for you, because that's what you want. Shit, go ahead and buy a $2m watch, I couldn't care less, because it doesn't affect me. I'd love a nice looking watch, but "nice" shouldn't cost the price of two years' rent.

I think I've got a watch for Christmas from my brother. But I'm pretty picky when it comes to these things, it'd be annoying if it wasn't my style and I either had to exchange it or just never wear it.

That's exactly what happened with my 18th birthday gift.

I don't like that trait in me, it makes me feel like an asshole (no offence)

I'm the same with coats. Dear god no one ever get me a coat. I'm very picky..'cause if I don't feel comfortable in it, I become extremely self conscious.

I need to get links taken out of mine. It's waaay to big. Looks ridiculous.

It's nice though. It was a graduation present from my uncle so I'm not exactly sure how much it was. Probably 80-100 bucks.

I have a fairly expensive watch which I got for my 18th, and I wear it all the time.
I also have a cheaper (but still nice looking) Swatch for when I'm going on holiday and anywhere I could lose my good watch.

Never really cared for them. I just got a job in sales though and I reckon I'll get one to wear with my fancy clothes and make me look more professional and important.

I find them uncomfortable and my mobile tells me the time anyway. So no, I don't wear one. Haven't since I was 12.

I've been getting a Wal-Mart watch every year for like 6 years, but they look nice and tell time. Not the most durable things, but for like $20 they're good. I'm wearing an Elgin now, I'm not sure where my sister got it from (not Wal-Mart), but it's too big and I still haven't gotten a link taken out a year later and can't find kits small enough to do it myself. It's cheap, because she was going to get me MW3, but said it was too expensive, and I've had people offer up to like $200 for it, I'm not really sure why I never took the offers. I also got it wet, and the digital side with the military time and date shorted out, but it at least has a nice analog side that works great..

Gotta go analog, and anything other than a leather strap or something similar is too flashy and not as stylish (ie. metal straps). I like the idea of a pocket-watch, but I can't see it being easy to pull off without seeming too "try-hard".

Going with a vintage or a modern watch with a classic band is the best option for a stylish accessory. There a oodles upon oodles of examples, so I'm not going to post any. But I strongly believe that what I described is the most fashionable choice for the modern man or woman.
