Challenge Accepted.
Imagine you were forced (or for some weird altruistic reason volunteered willingly) to serve food to the homeless in a Soup Kitchen.
The Media (useless as they be) will be there taking pictures and it might appear on the front page.

What watch would you wear?|>

Probably the G-Shock, because I would expect it to get banged around some. When I go help at the soup kitchen/food pantry, I usually get put to work picking up the larger items and toting them around lol

Maybe it wouldn't really be that altruistic if you were more concerned about the media taking pictures of your watch and obsessing over what to wear instead of actually thinking of helping the people who were the users of the soup kitchen...
Ha! I never said it had to be altruistic.
Wow we have a lot of volunteers here.

I actually have this thought pretty regularly. I contract with non-profits and often spend time at soup kitchens, shelters, food banks, etc meeting with their staff or board members. It is a dilemma; I want to look professional because they are paying for my time, but on the other hand I don't want to dress too nice when the environment I'll be in is full of folks who are down on their luck. I feel embarrassed to wear anything ostentatious or showy, which I think is the OP's question. I usually go with something low key like my Khaki Field.

You know Shaggy, i agree, i find this a very tasteless blog and sad for a whole host of reasons.
On one side of the fence youve got guys struggling to survive and on the other side youve got the bloke writing blogs about what watch he should wear because somebody might take a picture of him, dead set ive heard it all now on WUS, OP i was going to ask if you are taking the piss but unfortunately it seems that your not.
Theres plenty more observations to me made here, i'll refrain as i dont want to insult the OP, how about just use your common sense OP, you look like a big boy, im sure you can make the tough decision on your own if you really try hard.
Cheers

It started with a thread about guilt when wearing a nice watch. That turned into thread about what is the threshold watch for feeling guilty. This thread is the natural progression.
I'm not actually seriously debating about what watch to wear to a Soup Kitchen. I only really have one watch I wear 95% of the time anyway.
