The former. I refuse to acknowledge the latter.

Not stressful, just a practiced discipline. Beyond that, getting shot by a thug kills you a lot faster than stress. If being an alert human stresses you out, it's still a better option.
Me too. Fuck it. None of my kids care much for old watches, so I might as well enjoy them.
What’s on my wrist at the moment.
Hahahaha after reading about this 6ft 5ins giant MP in the numerous Reacher books it's hard to reconcile with Tom Stump as my missus calls him
Almost as convincing as the tough soldier of fortune, South African mercenary Danny ‘DiCaprio’ Archer. I have met a couple of real ones and their faces could crack open a walnut / they took XXL in body armour (if they bothered with it ;0)
Now you've got me started
As an ex boxer, even a lowly amateur I've always found Sylvester Stallone totally unconvincing as Rocky.
I watched the first 2 films but gave up nd didn't bother with the rest.
When the first film came put there had never been a southpaw heavyweight champion, only one champion shorter than he and the likelihood of another White American champ was very very remote.
He didn't look like a boxer, move like a boxer or punch like a boxer.
Roberto Duran said Stallone was the slowest human he'd ever been in the ring with and Duran uncharacteristically pulled his punches.
What really really p1ss1s me off about him is that he's more famous in Philadelphia and America as a whole as a boxer than hundreds of all time greats who're my heroes.
Rant over, thanks.
Are other brands such as Omega even safe to wear now in the UK? I wore my Omega when I was in London a few years ago, no problem and that was before all this theft and murders happening. The last thing on my mind at the time was me getting robbed, especially for my watch. For my next coming trip to the UK, I'm seriously contemplating if I should wear my Omega. Getting ridiculous to be afraid to wear a watch to a certain location.
Will most likely wear my SM300MC on the nato strap which looks really below the radar and no bling to attract attention unlike the AT or maybe the SMP.
Way to go. I wear my Rolex Milsub everywhere on an old green NATO. Nobody has noticed.
I don't think anyone would notice my Air King if I waved it about shouting "Look a Rolex!!!!"
I've never given it a second thought but I don't go into cities very often and never been to London.
The short answer is yes it is fine. You just have to be aware and be sensible. Being too flashy, being on the wrong street or tube late at night, not being alert/aware of people taking an interest in you - then it is a different situation.
Would it be fair to say that the main watches being targeted are the more flashy Rolexes such as ceramic GMTs and Subs? Those things stick out like a sore thumb. I can't imagine an Explorer or OP getting as much attention as they are more likely to fly under the radar. Except maybe the Tiffany dial.
If the damned thing is all iced out with sparkly shit, you’ll attract attention and probably get what you deserve….robbed!
The last time I was there, it was winter and my watch was most of the time hidden under the sleeves or jacket. Always a good thing to just wear long sleeves I guess.
I've worn my CK859 multiple times when I'm London for work. Pretty sure it's only hype pieces or particularly blingy / high value watches. It's about being sensible I think. Driving a bugatti and wearing an RM is asking for attention, not all of it positive...
Regardless of whether or not it was prudent to wear a watch like that in public, I don't think that anyone "deserves" to be attacked and brutally murdered by a sociopath with a hammer. That's like saying that an attractive woman with a short skirt deserves to be sexually assaulted. Crime is crime. You don't blame the victim.
I was of course joking, the stirring and grinning emojis might’ve been a hint
I mostly agree with the sentiment but there are exceptions….
