I'm a field researcher...therefore a field watch is a must. Ahem.No!
There is a tacit understanding that even if a WIS is at their desk balancing financial accounts in a skyscraper, they could be called out IMMEDIATELY to a 150-meter dive expedition for sunken Spanish gold.
That's why watches always need to have the correct straps.
In the same vein, I cringe at the watch/NATO combinations that some people with otherwise good tastes are proud of.I look down on people that put inappropriate straps onto watches, according to the function of the watch.
For example, putting leather straps on a diver or a mesh bracelet on a pilot watch. Shows a lack of common sense to me.

People stay indoors when I wear a rain jacket. If you wear your Arc'Teryx in the rain, will the pockets hold water?
Right...I've been there. I imagine they have a rain flap too, but with the pocket open, in the rain; will the pocket hold water? Or are we talking Robson St. Raingear?I was born in Singapore...Vancouver rain has NOTHING on the tropics.
Arc'Teryx have waterproof zippers.
I know what you mean. My Nomos tangomat is irritating like that with a short pr and non quickset date. Runs out so easily so I find I either wear it all the time or give up on it for periods as well.Sometimes, I forget to wind my Nomos on long weekends, it stops. I get mad and flip to my Stowa.
Damn this TO2 is oversized and heavy.
