    I'm just about your age, but haven't had this particular issue yet, thankfully.

    The Gen 1 Dynamics were supposedly designed to avoid the bony protuberances of the wrist, I really enjoy the look of them as well.

    I was also surprised how comfortable my Seamaster 600 is, even with a BOR bracelet on it. Light weight equates to comfort for me.

    Whenever I’m wearing my Richard Mille it feels like I’m not even wearing a watch. :thumbsup:

    Not quite casual enough for a jeans day though.

    Easily so, I often carry a 16s Hamilton. Many brands of jeans have watch pockets but the sizes vary. I have found that Wranglers have some of the most usable watch pockets while Levi's are nearly useless for anything larger than a 12s.

    Leivi’s pocket is ideal for a Zippo....not that I’m endorsing the daily use of a Zippo...which I do...bad-bad.

    About 100 years ago, when men dressed up in slim fitting 3-piece suits, patent leather shoes, spats, wingtip collars and bow ties, the wrist watch was still not de rigueur for men. Pocket watches were still popular. The problem was that there often wasn’t room in a vest pocket for many watches. A style of watch called an “opera” watch appeared on the scene. These were basically a wrist watch movement fitted to a case adapted to accommodate the small movement. The opera watch was usually about the size of a pocket watch, but notably slimmer. The one I show comes from family on my wife’s side. Interestingly, this watch was to have been buried with its original owner. But after the funeral, the funeral director removed it from the deceased vest pocket, and returned it to the widow, after interrment. The widow was furious. Case is 14-karat white gold.

    Roger that...for multiple pocket watches [more than two], I recommend utilizing pocket watch holsters.

    Pictured below...Hamilton 992, 992E and 992B respectively...

    Stretch bands...trust me.

    I'm in the same boat, most bands don't feel right, except a stretch band.

    Could you expand on that?

    No, seriously, what do you have in mind?

    He's totally serious. I'm surprised there isn't a Speedy visible on one (or both) of his wrists in these photos.
