I don't see the benefits of spending a large chunk of cash on a "dumb" watch if you can get al the benefits of a sportswatch for much less....
All basically true and I do not own a "good" watch - or even a sports watch. BUT I see the appeal of a truly fine watch. I will often notice and admire someone else's watch. I just can't justify it for myself. I guess I'll say that's a good thing but YMMV.
