I like to see my watches on other people's wrists vs my own.

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.
I'm a field researcher...therefore a field watch is a must. Ahem.

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.
In the same vein, I cringe at the watch/NATO combinations that some people with otherwise good tastes are proud of.

while I hope to be done buying watches for a long time, I’ve realized that people who list a watch’s condition without actually listing the details of imperfections are usually hiding something. “Like new” suddenly becomes “hairline scratches on case/bezel and that bracelet that I said was unworn has scuff marks on the clasp”. Just be honest and let me decide if those imperfections are worth the price you’re charging. When selling, I tend to exaggerate the imperfections so that the new buyer is pleasantly surprised when they receive it.

I live in Vancouver, BC.
It's a temperate rainforest. Arc'Teryx is a local company here.
It'll never stop raining.
Children born in Vancouver are certified waterproof by the hospital. I live on the North Shore, rain is my natural environment.
People stay indoors when I wear a rain jacket. If you wear your Arc'Teryx in the rain, will the pockets hold water?

Regards.

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?

Regards

6 years ago I purchased an Omega Deville saying no to a black GMT Master................................................................. because for some reason I hated Rolex at the time and didn't realise how incredibly useful a GMT is when you travel.......................................... and now I have a quartz GMT to fill that gap..................... I suck =(

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.

My work phone and computer are set to the time of an office an hour off my home timezone. Sometimes I forget and set my watch to the work phone. Sometimes I just get confused as to the hour and set my watch wrong all on my own.

I do this despite having an Apple watch always on the off wrist with the correct local time. :-d

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.

I took three five-plus mile walks with my wife and dog this weekend (each to the auto parts store). Didn't wear a mechanical for any of them; wore the apple watch on the left wrist.

Answering a call on an apple watch is a really bizarre experience.

Oh, I did get the TAG Chrono back out to time steaks, so I'm absolved of my sins.
