    Many years ago, a local jewelry store had a special promotion, where if you bought a Festina watch, you got a free Festina Cycling Jersey. It was around the same time as the doping scandal involving Richard Virenque. So I couldn't resist. The watch is OK, but more clunky than I prefer, so I don't wear it much. But the jersey is really nice - one of my favorites.
    Insert something clever here:

    Does the watch or jersey cry while declaration innocents to the press?

    I'd rather see the return of those 2" wide leather watch bands that were popular in the 70's...(I believe that Cliff wore one in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood")

    Have any of you ever met anyone wearing a massive wristwatch that wasn’t a straight up douchebag?

    My wife got me this for my birthday. Company is called Binger and costs around $110. Nice size, nice weight and I like it almost as much as my Citizen EcoDrive, which was $700.

    I'm not sure where you bought that but they are about half of that price. I own 2 of them.

    UltracTrac mode will go much farther. I've been on the 935 and now 945 for years now and I don't like big watches...they don't bother me at all. :shrug:

    I had quit wearing a watch years ago after a badly broken wrist made it painful. For years I just wore my road ID on my wrist. My mom gave me a samsung gear fit 2 pro and it weighs 1/2 of nothing and my road ID slips right on the band. I ordered a 2 dollar band from China, put the road I buckle and tag on it and I have a reasonable device to track stuff (gps too) that is comfortable as well as being ugly!

    I haven't worn a watch in decades...

    TOG probably remembers this one.
    Chicago - Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is ...


    https://www.youtube.com › watch





    Lyrics
    As I was walking down the street one day
    A man came up to me and asked me what the time was that was on my watch, yeah
    And I said
    Does anybody really know what time it is (I don't)
    Does anybody really care (care about time)
    If so I can't imagine why (no, no)
    We've all got time enough to cry
    And I was walking down the street one day
    A pretty lady looked at me and said her diamond watch had stopped cold dead
    And I said
    Does anybody really know what time it is (I don't)
    Does anybody really care (care about time)
    If so I can't imagine why (no, no)
    We've all got time enough to cry
    And I was walking down the street one day (people runnin' everywhere)
    Being pushed and shoved by people (don't know where to go)
    Trying to beat the clock, oh, no I just don't know (don't know where I am)
    I don't know, I don't know, oh (don't have time to think past the last mile)
    (Have no time to look around) And I said, yes I said (run around and think why)
    Does anybody really know what time it is (I don't)
    Does anybody really care (care about time)
    If so I can't imagine why (no, no)
    We've all got time enough to die
    Everybody's working (I don't care)
    I don't care (about time)
    About time (no, no)
    I don't care

    When referring to large wrist watch, are you talking about the horizontal (diameter) dimension or vertical (thickness) dimension?

    As for the size of watch and the dude's personality, I didn't notice any correlation over the years but I did notice one on how obsessed a dude is with his wrist watch and his personality. I'll just say, it's not a pleasant one.

    Whatever...I kinda associate them with gold chain wearing coke-head types. And maybe a few realtors and car salesmen types. Definitely not the 'mountain town' chic.

    At least those are the types who wear them around here.

    Your preconceived stereotypes aside, most of us that like big watch just like the look or...have big wrists.

    A personal choice is just that and doesn't infer that someone has to be a douche because of it.

    It's more like observations than pre-concieved stereotypes. But sure, the big wristed get a pass.

    Another similar dynamic: people who wear white sunglasses.

    Why do you feel compelled to judge people? I love my Goodr sunglasses for running and pool wear and at under 30 bucks for polarized lenses they are a bargain.

    I am just happy to know that folks like yourself would see me on the trail with my big Fenix5X watch and my white sunglasses and make judgements, while I am busy enjoying running the trail.

    Have a super nice day.
