Watches for the X5?

Is there an official watch of the X5? I mean... there has to be a perfect watch to compliment the styling... what do you wear and what feels right with the X5?

LOL.

Do you expect people to recommend a rugged watch, because you can go offroad, or a dainty one because ladies can complete the school run in the car?

Today I'll wear a G-Shock whilst driving, change to a JLC when entering the office building, a Rolex in the shopping mall and a Patek for the opera.

You sure they don't make you drive a Land Rover to wear a JLC? Or do you also switch cars with your watch changes?

I have several JLC. The Deep Dea for the admin days and the Reverso when presenting to the team.

I also have junior members of said team follow me in my fleet should the time arise my car and watch don't match.

In another world I buy the watch i want and the car I want. Oddly, taste does resonate through those choices. My F90 is big, loud and brash, as is my AP ROO Diver, as am I.

I'd say only a hublot can match the douchiness of this post

I do wish they still offered the oyster bracelet on Batman but jubilee is growing on me.

I am not a fan of jubilee bracelet on Rolex sports models.
