Sensible, sturdy, professional. Not "compensating."
on June 18, 2014
These days, an expensive watch is a sign of a douchebag. Everyone has a phone/camera/computer/clock in their pocket, everyone knows that wristwatches are almost over. A guy wearing a Rolex or Tag Heuer now is like a guy who flashes a diamond-studded gold ink pen. Other DBs will be impressed, everyone else sees he's trying to make up for something.
At under $40 this is a sensible, sturdy, good-looking watch for a professional setting. Easy to read, easy to set, accurate. A two-toned design allows you to wear this along with most neckties, with black or brown belt/shoe combo, with gold or silver belt buckles, wedding rings, etc. The clasp is very sturdy and has an inset button-release so you're not torquing the latch a little every time you take it off. That's an extra star right there: I find the clasp is the first thing to wear out on a good watch.
Minor downsides: The face is a little busy, not sure this is the type of watch that needs a stopwatch with an hour dial. This is also a heavier watch and you'll probably want to cinch it -- if you don't know how, plan another $10 for someone to knock links off the band.
