Do you tend to notice when a man is wearing an expensive "luxury" watch that costs thousands rather than hundreds? If so, does it lead you to formulate an impression of that person?

I'm especially interested in opinions on more subdued designs and normal-sized watches rather than large gaudy watches that are designed to attract attention.

(I have my eye on a watch that I find beautiful and would be proud to own, wear, and pass to my son some day, but do not want to draw attention to.)

I edited my OP in response to this. Does it change the answer?

Not every expensive watch is large and obnoxious looking. The best watches are actually quite understated.

Here’s a Rolex Daytona. It retails at $12,400.

It’s a handsome watch that’s wonderfully balanced. It’s definitely eye-catching to anyone who appreciates watches. But to the average Joe, you’re not going to notice it. People who wear these watches are typically not trying to flaunt it to brag about their wealth. They simply appreciate horology and watchmaking.

I think the watches that you’re referring to are the ones that are the size of a baseball and blinged out with gold and diamonds. Those are just silly.

Update: I see that the original post was updated and the entire premise of the topic has changed! Just to add, don't buy a watch because of concerns of what others think about it. Buy the watch for how it makes YOU feel. That said, what's the watch that you want to pull the trigger on?

That's a nice watch. Love the red on the seconds hand. The blue sunburst dial is very sharp looking as well. As far as pilot watches go, this is definitely a solid choice.
