There are two kinds of watch-wearing guys. The shiny stainless steel wristband guys, and the subdued leather wrist band guys. Most men turn to the shiny stainless steel wristbands when they’re looking to buy a new watch. It’s almost like it’s a default setting that’s buried deep within the male subconscious.
If you’re looking for a durable metal-band watch, but also don’t want to risk blinding anyone in a 20 foot radius of you on a sunny day, then this might be a good pick.
The bezel allegedly bounces a bit more light than you’d think, so beware of that. But… the flashiness of this watch is kept to a perfectly subdued minimum. It’s a second-glancer. At first glance someone won’t know what it is, but will be intrigued enough for a second glance. And after the second glance, it’s doubtful they’ll
think it cost you less than $60.
There’s something to be said for purposely not standing out in the crowd, but yet at the same time, somehow still standing out in the crowd. I realize that sounds like something Yogi Berra would have said, but… hopefully that made some kind of sense. This watch does just that.
