Well Guys

You know me. The thought of it is nothing short of a horror story


I used to buy double-cuffed shirts. That was before my WIS days of course. Now I have a whole stack of unworn shirts I perhaps should donate to a charity shop. Some folk say cufflinks wont get in the way of watches but know what? I ain't hanging around to find out!!!

How 'bout you pals? Do you wear cufflinks?


Y'all be well now :001_smile:

Absolutely. Almost all my dress shirts require cufflinks. And to date I've never had any issue with any watch or it's bracelet getting damaged by them. And remember, I don't wear small watches... :wink: :lol:

I really don't see too many ways a cufflink can damage a watch. After all, most of the metals outside the cuff, not inside....

I will wear cufflinks with all of my shirts that require them, like Scott I have never had any issues with my watches getting damaged.

I do not wear cuff links, as that is one extra thing I have to worry about. Funny story though....... Was at a customer site, and one guy wore them. Unfortunately he forgot his, and used the pins in the hotel bathroom kit. We were eating breakfast when I saw them and I cracked up laughing. No one on site noticed though.

Hey pal,

You ever wear jackets with snap closures on the end of the sleeves? Or wear jeans & put your hand in the pockets (directly above is usually a rivit)? Or reach inside a jacket to an inner pocket with the watch hand (past the zipper of the jacket)? I think all of these items pose a much higher risk of incident (which is still very small) than a cuff-link....
Yea, they may eventually give a very minor scuff (not even a scratch). But that's what cape cod cloths are for... :thumbup1:

Plus, if your cuffs are tight enough to get the cuff-link near the watch, you need to buy bigger shirts - that's way too tight! :eek:hmy: :eek:hmy: :001_smile:

There is always a solution -- I generally don't wear a WRISTwatch with cufflinks



Cufflink watches

Set to two different time zones

If I need a third time zone . . . either this



or this

I prefer cuff links on my dress shirts, plus I wear western shirts with snaps on the cuffs with jeans. No problems yet.:cool1:

Hey Pal

I never put my hands in the pockets of my jeans - that's what cowboys do:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin: - no offense intended towards cowboys naturally ;)

Reach into an inner jacket pocket past a zipper

No Fear !!!


That's what Cape Cod cloths are for

Possibly but I hold by the premise that

Prevention Is Better Than Cure :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:


Cufflinks imho are an UNACCEPTABLE RISK
anywhere near a watch



Have a nice day now :001_smile:

Hi Zin,

I used to have exactly the same attitude as you. Infact with some of my watches I still do. My AT is still pristine. Maybe it's in respect to how you looked after it originally.

However, my attitude changed last year when I bought my brand new Breitling Super Avenger. All my other watches were in storage whilst we were moving. I knew the watch could take it so I wore it work (I often have my hands inside electrical equipment) and I did the whole move in it. It took a right beating and there are now multiple scratches and scrapes on it. But I thought, what the heck I love wearing this watch, it can take it and a Breitling service will make it pristine again.

Sorry to waffle on about a Breitling but it leads me on to my recently aquired Gemini IV Speedy Pro. I have been wearing this for work and general odd jobs. There again, I love wearing it so what's the point in having it locked up for nine hours a day whilst I'm at work. The Hesalite already needs a polish but that's no big deal.

Why has my attitude changed? I really don't know. Maybe I realised that I was pampering these watches when they were designed to take anything I could reasonably throw at them.

Still, that AT sure looks good in it's current state.:biggrin: Maybe I still need to have an immaculate watch in my collection.

Crikey, Sigmund Freud would have had a field day with me.:eek:hmy:

I've only worn cuff links with a tux, and that was before my watch-wearing days. Handcuffs, now that will do some damage to a watch :scared:
