Hello Mark !
I also wear the watches as jewels more than technical accessories. To be honest, even when I wear my watch, I generally look at the time on my phone, which is ridiculous aha.
I think Jewel is more elegant one
Hey Mark, as a woman, I do appreciate technical complications, but do put more attention into the outside appearance and how the technique is serving the aesthetics rather than the opposite. So I think that I consider my watches more as jewels, than as a technical accessory. To me the technique is a tool to achieve the desired style and design. I am not very sensitive to men watched which resist to extreme conditions. I find my inspiration more in houses such as Hermès or Cartier.
