Fashion question for all the MR crew. I've been thinking for awhile about buying a nice watch for myself as a graduation present after grad school. I've seen a lot of hype about nice watches in the usual places like GQ, etc. which I'm sure are largely motivated by the nice-watch-making industry. So, my question to girls and guys here on MR is, how much do you actually notice what kind of watch a person has? I tend to take pretty good care of things; see: excessive care with Powerbook and Revo glasses, so I'm not worried so much about losing/trashing one. Thanks for the feedback, and if there are suggestions or links to nice (but not ridiculously nice) watches I'd appreciate it too. Up to/around a grand is doable.
