    Question COWBOY watches?

    There is the function issue, but there is also the "look" aspect.
    What sort of watches do cowboys wear? Field watches?

    I ask bcz, unlike divers and pilots, cowboys wear the same outfit they did since forever.
    After all, cowboying is not a technology-based work. Not really.

    So, I am thinking. what goes well (looks good) a cowboy hat and boots?

    Sometimes I wonder if you're a programmer who wrote a forum random topic generator. Maybe you're just software generating conversation. A bot that forum owners buy to populate forums.

    LOL!

    A cowboy has to have a water-proof field watch. It should be a chronograph.

    If they wore one it at all, it would be hard to argue against a G-Shock or even an ABC watch. Can be viewed at night, has various timers, alarms, etc. From an analog standpoint, I think a simply infantry field watch or perhaps a diver with a timing bezel.

    Montana Watch Co... if they are rich cowboys (and a little gay)!
    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    Friends Don't Let Friends Buy G-Schlocks.

    That reads like a bad punchline, but you get a like anyway.
