+1. I actually feel naked when I walk out the door without a watch.

I have two watches that were given to me as college graduation gifts over twenty years ago - Cartier Tank and a Rolex Tudor (entry level watch that isn't sold in the US). Both are completely different but have classic looks. The Cartier has a leather strap with a gold face while the Tudor is mostly stainless steel with touches of gold. The leather strap is a bit pricey to replace ($100?) so I try not to wear the watch too often in the summer when I perspire more easily. I think I've serviced them every 7-10 years. It's not cheap so I try to minimize the exposure to moisture and dust.


DD, let me understand this. You will drop a $100+++ on a wine in the blink of an eye, but concerned you need to replace a leather band every 5-10 years on a Cartier Tank. Razz Wink
