That's gonna be a no from me dog.

Always loved the reverso but not sure of the optics. Maybe a sub? I also love the polar explorer ii but would love suggestions. Not trying to come in looking like a snob

I dress it down all the time. On a brown strap it goes great with jeans and a t-shirt. Also have a perlon strap for warmer weather / dressing down

Ming 17.03 if you can find it. Ethos of the watch will resonate with start up life

Does the brand name of the firm really matter? Comparing offers between:

2. Top of Mid Tier (think GT, RSM) FDD + Valuations
