Whilst the presenters (being on big bucks contracts) certainly have ?500+ watches that most of us couldn't afford (or could but would rather pay our bills first ) here's a brand that I reckon is close to the TG spirit (if I can call that) and that has a wide range of models for not that expensive prices, Fossil.
Anyone agrees, or has any other suggestions of the same kind?
Funnily enough, I believe James May has a Fossil watch, a Phillipe Starck 'Veiled' one.
I was quite surprised, because I bought one myself in the summer, and several of my more observant friends immediately made the comparison (I generally wear men's watches). And then I went to the toy fair the other weekend, and he was indeed wearing a watch just like mine (which I hastily removed before I got my book signed, because I didn't want to look like a mad fangirl... and also, it's always a bit awkward when people turn up wearing the same thing :lol: )
i fully believe it's like having more then one pair of shoes, you need a work shoe, a play shoe, a winter shoe, and a dress shoe. your watches should be the same. I'm not going to go to a fancey dinner with my grandparents, or even on a date to a nice restaurant wearing a digital Indiglo watch from the 90s.
just as i'm not going to wear a pair of work boots to this same restuarant.
someone said earlier that a watch and a car represent a gentleman, this couldn't be more true, even today.
things like watches are representations of yourself. there should be watches for different ocasions.
And there I was this morning thinking I sleepwalked, switched my computer on, went on the forum and replied on this thread.......... :?
Then I realized it was scoops' post.
Sport on mate, I couldn't have said it better!
