    I know there will be some disagreement here. But unless you are in a punk band, you may be a douche if your watch looks like this.

    This is a Rochefoucauld, the
    thinnest water-resistant watch in the world.

    Singularly unique, sculptured in design, hand-crafted in Switzerland and water-resistant to three atmospheres.

    This is THE sports watch of the eighties.
    $6,955.00 retail.

    You got a receipt?

    Look, it tells time simultaneously in Monte Carlo, Beverly Hills, London, Paris, Rome and Gstaad.

    In Philadelphia it's worth fifty bucks.

    While we're discussing the accessories of the douche, can we all agree that a man wearing a white belt* automatically qualifies as a douche?

    Any wristwatch. In an era where everyone has a cell phone, what's the point?

    The answer is clear: this $300,000 watch that does not keep the time, just the date.

    they're the guys who get a watch that's specifically not a rolex so that they're not rolex guy - because amongst watch enthusiasts, rolex can be douchey. sometimes being an anti-douche is pretty douche.

    any Rolex - the Bose of watches. If your going to spend a bit of money on a watch at least buy a decent one.

    I am not really sure how a Rolex Submariner in solid stainless is a douche watch in any way. It is not gaudy, it is timeless and classy in design as well as functional. the first watch posted, or anything similar is probably the winner. Breitling is a good choice of douche watch unless you're a pilot. I prefer fairly understated watches like the Submariner, Ulysse Nardin Big Date Dual Time, Omega Seamaster, and the one somewhat in your face watch the Omega Planet Earth - bright orange. I will confess to feeling pretty douchey when I wear a Porsche Design watch, but WTH I love Porsche so I guess again guilty of douche.

    Would you still buy a Rolex if the name weren't printed on the face? What if it were the same watch, same band, same crystal, same internal parts, but they printed Timex on it and charged a few grand for it?

    Maybe you would, but I bet most Rolex wearers wouldn't.

    I'm a little saddened by the douche crowd picking up on Breitlings because I always like mine but its not quite as gaudy.

    There's a guy at my office that wears a watch like in the OP. He also has a black band for it. He wears striped, untucked shirts, $200 jeans, and shoes that are flat across the toe.

    You do the math.

    i'm biased, but i'm with texas007 on this - i don't see how a stainless & black rolex submariner is douchey.
