Packing for Formula 1 in Montreal this weekend

This weekend is the Formula 1 GP in Montreal.  This will be my first time attending the event even though I have been a fan since the late 80's (yes I am showing my age).  My late brother and I talked of attending a F1 event as it has been on our bucket list since we were kids. Unfortunately I had lost him in 2014 and vowed I would continue our passion for auto racing. I am very excited to attended this year (finally) as it was canceled when I bought tickets in 2019 for the 2020 and 2021 season for myself and son to attend. My question is this,  I am curious what kind of watch you would suit attending this spectacle?  As it's  3 day event would you bring just one watch or 3 ?  Something dressing for the night club scene? The first watch that comes to mind of course is the Rolex Daytona or is that the obvious go to choice?  I am simple folk with a modest budget that speaks more of Casio , Seiko but, I am curious for the race fans out there what would you wear? Please share your thoughts and photos. Thanks

Pagani Paul Newman homage.

Montreal is a great city and there are fewer sports scenes as fun as F1. Pick one watch for the weekend that you want to associate with the experience. Don't put much thought into our picks, nor do we even know what is in your collection.  It is your memory to make.

Strong words great advice , my collection is made up of Casio Edifice a few Seiko and a couple homages. Felt I want just one watch to spend the time think of that one watch collection idea. You are right not too much thinking. Thanks again.

I attended the 1989 F1 US GP in Phoenix. Bad street circuit but I got to see some legends. Senna, Prost, Mansell. 

Have a great GP weekend!

First off Enjoy!!! F1 is just an experience like no other. Being there and having fun pays the greatest tribute to your brother. So many brands are represented at F1 - RM steels the show for price and flash IMO lacks class or taste . Citizen sponsors a team Any watch you vibe is the right one

Thanks for the advice. I did notice some RM and Rolex present.
