Tungsten Watch...Too Flashy (literally)..as in reflective?IB
So I have been toying with the idea of getting this Movado watch for a while. It is made out of a substance called Tungsten Carbide. For those of you that are unfamiliar with it, it is perhaps the most scratchproof metal you can get it a watch. I have a ring made out of Tungsten, and you simply cannot scratch it. I have taken a pair of pliers to this thing, and it will dent the tool without leaving a mark on the ring.
I want a watch made out of the same substance because I tend to beat the hell out of my watches. With this watch, it will look brand new even after years of wear. The one problem is that it is VERY reflective. When you clean it, it shines like a mirror. That leads me to the main drawback. I just started work for a hedge fund that is straigt casual all the time. This means the watch will show all day long since I will be rolling short sleeves a lot. Anyone else think this might be just a bit too flashy for a work setting, or am I just being paranoid.
