I included matching because your watch(es) should match with you. They should match your activities, they should match your outfit etc. If you’re a truck driver you probably haven’t much need for dress watches. Maybe you could add one to the collection for special occasions but that’s probably it.
If you’re an accountant and you wear business suits all day you might think that a funky 70s diver looks great but truthfully a dress watch would look better with a suit.
When you match your watches to your person they will be a better fit and you’ll enjoy them more.
