It’s mornings like these that I can’t help but notice the subconscious choices I make to integrate my daily life with this hobby (obsession???).

What do you do to make watch collecting a pervasive passion?

I’ll go first, I’ll admit that I like to watch/outfit match. Today’s entry is a blue suit to match my blued seconds hand:

Been down this road before. Before I retired (13 yrs ago on July 1st), I picked my boots first. That determined whether I was wearing blues, grays, etc. or earthtones. Then the watch was chosen based on strap and/or dial color. This process also determined which pair of glasses I wore that day.

I just can't wear black frames and a black strap watch with browns and tans, just as Ican't wear brown frames and a brown strap with black and dark grays. Just can't do it. I made things a bit easier by wearing a lot of olive because I could wear black or brown with it. Life is easier now that I primarily wear jeans or olive chinos.

Love the arabics on that dial, and the BOR is like Lebowski's rug, it ties the whole outfit together. Sorry that you have to suit up on a Sunday though.

There was that one time I was wearing a black shirt and dark grey washed jeans and I felt the need to take off my navy blue watch... but that's pretty much the only time I've thought about it.

I do try to be appropriate to the occasion. I won't wear something dressy to go swimming or wear a diver to a wedding.

I might as well mention one of my other matching quirks. I worked in buildings with fluorescent lighting. As some of you know, lighting affects color greatly. One day I took out a new pair of olive slacks to pair with a beige shirt and olive patterned tie. The combo looked great in incandescent lights and in the sun, but as soon as I walked into my building, the lighting turn the olive pants into pea soup green. sat behind my desk until lunch and then sped home to change my slacks.

I went out that weekend and purchased a fluorescent light for my walk-in closet so I could know how the colors would work at work.

I do coordinate my watch with my outfit…the problem is then I feel it necessary to have a bunch of different colors in my collection…it is probably crazy…but hey some call my watch obsession crazy!

I usually pick my watch for the week, following a set rotation, and stick with it form Monday through Sunday. If something comes up during that week, I will change the watch to match the activity (casual, business, etc.) That's about the only time I'll change a watch that's in rotation.

I think we can all agree, nobody cares what watch you're wearing and do it more so to match the event.

Always cognizant of matching my watches with my clothing, but sometimes is picking watch I want to wear first and then matching my clothes to the watch.

Since I have been WFH for over a year, I match stuff when I get extremely bored

Once upon a time I enjoyed subtle matches, such as grey business casual shoes with a grey dial watch.
