K, so GQ released an article about affordable watches that celebs wear. I don’t care about celebs, but I do care about affordable.
And I was down. There was the John Mayer/G Shock marriage.
A word about John Mayer. NOT Ivy, but a remarkable guitarist. And a truly remarkable blues guitarist. He had the best line once. He is in an interview about blues guitar, and the interviewer asks him where he’s from, and he says, “Fairfield Connecticut, home of the blues.”
Steph Curry wears a Movado. I don’t like either. The 3 point shot is a party trick, and has removed defense from the game. Wait, I do like Steph Curry as a guy. Heard him on Smartless. He figured out how to game the game. No fault of his.
But then we get to Bill Murray and Timex. Which is why I read the article. Who doesn’t love Bill Murray? I do. And who doesn’t love Timex? I do. The Weekender WITH a Nato strap (no leather thanks, that is pre Covid) is perhaps the most Ivy watch of all time.
I’m all in. Until the picture –
… where you see him wearing a Timex that he can see on one hand and a Cartier he cannot see on the other.
