It’s a good day for Tudor. Hodinkee app stays on my phone, mostly because the audible seconds watch setting sub-app is still useful.

Articles like this fail to differentiate between suits and tuxedos. (How often do any of us wear a tux, really?).

Even in a tuxedo context, if I see someone at the Oscars with a day date on, I’m not shaking my head in disbelief. Same if I see a groom with a nice watch on a bracelet for his wedding day.
 

And do these rules apply equally across genders? 🤔

I am the third generation of professional curmudgeons who wear watches on bracelets with suits. If I go through old photos of people with style and class, this also wasn’t unusual for them. I’m not sure when this rule ever came about, but it seems like a recent contrivance to me.
