Pick a Saturday watch…

Post by missF »

This feels like such a Saturday watch

Tell me which of your watches is a great Saturday watch. Or which one that’s not in your collection that you’d like to own for Saturdays :thumbup:

My Saturday watch is usually whatever I was wearing on Friday and will probably wear on Sunday. I normally wear a watch for at least four or five days, and the day and time I swap is quite random. Today it’s the Twelve Ti (since Thursday). Last week, Speedy. Next week, :?: :?: :?:

Usually, one of my casual / beater / tool watches as it's the weekend and often with a brand or model name that rhymes with Saturday for a hash tag description.

Today is the turn of my Australis Sea Shade 'Seahawks'.

I agree with casual, but am enjoying being slightly dressed up for #SuedeSaturday. :lol: 8)

To a certain extent for a gentleman of leisure there is no particular distinction between the days of the week.

The watches I wear are more informed by where I am, who I am with and what I am doing.

However to go with the spirit of the thread, my thought process is…

If we find ourselves at home on a Saturday doing nothing…

- any watch is suitable for listening to the radio or podcasts
- any watch with a second hand is suitable for making coffee
- any watch with a bracelet is suitable for spending a few hours preparing and cooking our evening meal
- any watch with a bracelet is suitable for pottering around in the garden

However one of my favourite doing nothing watches is the one in the middle…

It wasn’t suitable for timing coffee extraction and won’t be worn for cooking duties, but otherwise it will perform admirably today as a “busy doing nothing watch” for other activities. A true Saturday watch. The other two in the pic will also be worn today.

Ally watches fall under the casual category even though for me anything with a leather strap is dressy. For this Saturday went with this. Image

As Neil says, days of the week take on a lot less meaning for us retired blokes.

It’s a grey and wet Saturday here, so while I had on a Harrison earlier, I’ve switched to the Fjorde in Magma from Feynman. The color has gotten me more lifted than I expected.

I am rather envious of your biking adventures. :thumbup:

I keep thinking that if I tried taking that up again at my age, it wouldn’t end well. :(

Mind you, as I work from home on a very irregular schedule, a Saturday does not much change things for me outside of errands. :) I could just as easily pick a dressier watch, which I often do.

Neil, I hadn’t been on a bike for the best part of 40 years when I restarted in 2018. I must admit, it’s a big part of my life now - leading to new friendships, involvement in training and charity work etc. best thing I ever did, and with appropriate training, there’s no reason it should end badly - at any age.

ever since the pandemic and working from home most of the time, i find it harder to distinguish between weekdays and weekends for watches. i'm generally wearing jeans/shorts and a tshirt 6 days a week. and that 7th is jeans and a collared shirt. so i'm wearing anything anytime at this point.

but this today.
