I do agree. I won't be wearing a business suit today (or an Army uniform), retired 15 years ago, but when I do I have watches for a coat & tie. Also watches for daily grunge wear, beach & swimming, for formal evening dress (in either gold or silver, depending on my other accessories), watches for casual & informal dress, etc. I also have several different eyeglass frames that coordinate with the watches (or is it vice-versa? lol).
I once had a BF who, the first time we went together to a black-tie event (I think an art opening at the museum where he was the president, followed by a VIP reception & private dinner), he wore his daily bulky black digital sports watch. I was appalled that a gay man with his background, wealth and social position did not have more watches, and none dress. Better to wear nothing on your wrist under your French cuff.
So for Christmas I gave him an elegant thin analog tank watch with metal mesh band, in silver to match his favorite stud & cufflink set. And thereafter whenever we wore black tie I made sure he remembered it, since we usually dressed together, me doing his bow tie, another thing he inexplicably knew nothing about, previously making do with a tacky clip-on.
BTW, today I'm wearing a bulky sports watch that's 100% solar, no replaceable battery, its date/time set by radio signal from the US atomic clock in Denver, Colorado.
