    Wearing a tux next weekend for a wedding. First time I've dressed up "black tie" since my own wedding almost 10 long, long, long....I mean wonderful....years ago.

    Planning to wear my SG AW with my 3rd party black milanese loop band. Was playing with the faces last night, trying to decide which is the "classiest."

    I'm not in the wedding party and hopefully won't be in that many pictures.

    To be honest, I would buy a very simple black watch with black band that is super thin and has just the time and maybe date. There are perfect examples on Amazon for less than $100. But, the Apple Watch would be utility with nothing but the time and black classic leather.

    As a guy I do not even think about matching my Watch face with my tux.

    Are you that self conscious that you worry about your looks to the point you are worried about your watch face matching your tux? Reallt?

    I would say you are kidding but then this is McRumors.

    Wearing an active AW to a wedding is like having your iPhone out the whole time (i.e., tacky). If I were to wear it, I'd put it in Do Not Disturb mode so if you have a nice mechanical you might as well wear it.

    Assuming your tux, and dress shirt, have sleeves, unlikely anyone will notice. That said, I'd go for Simple - hands and date. And make sure your cuff links match your SG AW ;)

    i'd have my watch and phone on silent, for sure. will have a baby sitter at home so DND isn't really an option.

    similiar story - i attended a funeral a few years ago. i had a fitbit at the time. for that instance I was self-aware about wearing one for such an occasion and left it at home.

    meanwhile 2 of the 3 speakers at the service were wearing their own Fitbits at the service...

    I think the AW is a great fashion piece but the SG one may stick out a little more from a look that isn't as classy with a tux versus a space black or stainless steel. I'd rock it and go with the simple face in the first pic.

    Yes, it's still an option as you can keep your iPhone active and still have the AW in DND, if you set it not to mirror the iPhone (just for the occasion; you can always turn it back on).

    Makes sense. In that case, definitely lose the cuff links. They'd look silly on a T-shirt.

    I pick the top right but would take off the weather and the time below, it has the time already, seems redundant.

    That would tell me that I was worrying too much about what others think about me and what I wear.

    Not sure what's wrong with wearing a fitbit at a funeral...

    As a guy? What does that have to do with anything? If he cares more about the way he looks than you do, so be it.

    Personally, I would wear a different watch. I've worn my Apple Watch to a more casual day wedding, but I've worn my other watches to evening, more formal ones.

    Right, a "dumb" fitbit is really no different from a dumbwatch, and the worse one can get from wearing a dumbwatch to a funeral is "How much longer is this damn funeral going to be?"

    However, a "smart" fitbit (one that is capable of notifications) would be considered just as tacky as an AW unless put in DND when worn to important events such as a wedding, funeral, etc.

    To me, this is an example of a tuxedo or black suite watch for formal events. Though I would prefer with hands - this was the first one I found.

    Definitely not the chronograph face, and I'd remove the date, too. Simple dress watches don't need a date window.

    Here's the face I used when I wore my aging tux to play a concert a couple weekends ago. Utility, with as few markings as possible, and no complications. I thought the hour mini-ticks gave it a nice little detail while aiding legibility. It proved useful, too, for giving me driving directions along the way. My vintage Omega doesn't have the ability.

    Oh yeah, the black sport band didn't look as out of place as I feared. I would have preferred a classic black leather buckle strap, but I don't have one yet. The polished steel helps it look a lot better than anodized aluminum, IMO, and would have matched my studs and cuff links (if I had found them.)

    Just saying that women care more about how the look at special occasions. It does matter to them and a few "metro" types. I know of no guys who worry that much about their watch matching their outfit.

    But then choice is good.

    Plenty of men worry about their appearance, it's not just women or "metro" types.

    --

    Personally for a SG Sport with a tux, I would use the black leather loop. But personally I think the stainless steel with a black classic leather band works the best with black tie.

    Nope; I'm right handed, but I like having the crown on the left so I can scroll and click with my thumb.

    Watches, ties, and other trinkets are the only accessories we've got. ;-p
