I thought of mentioning Breitling, but they tend to be very expensive. They are nice watches, although generally not simple enough for my tastes.



your exquisite tastes and refined fashion sense are increasingly hard to take seriously so long as it comes across as if from the very mouth of Zac Efron

is it ok for a women's watch to have gold accents? people seem so anti-yellow gold these days.

I would say it's fine on a woman's watch.

I like a watch that has both silver and gold (for women) because it's a piece which you'll likely wear every day, it needs to be able to adapt to whatever else you may be wearing (earrings, necklace, bracelet, bag and shoes/belt if they have visible hardware). Men usually don't have to wake up and make the gold or silver choice as their watch may be the only piece of jewelry they're going to wear, it's a little more complicated for us.

thanks for all the responses. i recently bought a (i think) tasteful two-toned watch and didn't want the fashion police to come after me. glad it is suitable.

doable and classy. still too much gold for me, but i feel like it could work and would be more versatile for the warmer-toned clothing (browns, neutrals, etc).

i prefer simplicity, single tone (or if multi: black and silver), and my clothing is decidedly less warm, so white gold/silver ftw. the extreme version of what i would do is probably movado:

Citizen makes some very decent watches right around that pricepoint. Go for their Eco-Drive (Solar powered). Silver in color. No plastic or rubber. The one I have has a dark blue background and is very classy looking (but no so classy you can't wear it with a pair of jeans). You can sometimes find them on sale at a Kay Jewlers (or similar) but not usually.

This is just personal preference, I guess, but I cannot stand the way gold and silver look together. I think it looks tacky. But, yeah, I understand that everybody likes different stuff. I'm not very "fashion police-y" either, but silver/gold jewelry makes me gag. bleh.

Getting back to suits, there is a Thai company, Masters Tailors, that makes really good custom-fitted suits (mine required 27 measurements...) for less than $300. They use the same fabrics as Versace, Armani, Prada, etc. You can spend up to a grand on a suit with them, but it's not necessary. Incredibly good suits for a really good price.

This is my exact watch, actually. I'm surprised I managed to find a picture of it, since it's several years old.

It's currently in the shop because I fucked up the crown, somehow. :(

Nice. I ordered their catalog to check out the fabrics. That seems pretty awesome. Maybe I'll put together a pretty cheap on at first to test it out. Thanks for the tip.

Haha well the measurements were a different story entirely. I got measured at a Jos. A. Bank, but the dude was so confused about what he was doing it ended up taking forever and I bought a few things because I felt bad. Thankfully their website has diagrams and instructions that you can easily pull up on a blackberry to show to the person doing the measuring (that's what I had to do).

If you take in a printout or a blackberry it's pretty easy to figure out how to do the measurements, I was just unfortunate enough to have a salesperson who apparently was uncomfortable with a measuring tape. All in all though, worth the hassle.
