Really very seldom wear baseball hats; much prefer a brimmed had for sun protection after a minor bout with skin cancer.

I am very heartened to see the vast majority of the responses on here!

I am now less likely to wear my custom "my watch may look like SS, but costs 4x as much" t-shirt.

I wear one in my Tennis league, it is pretty ratty at this point. I keep a green one in my golf bag as my back-up when I forget a cap.

Are Rolex hats waterproof, and if so - to what depth, is it safe to wear in a hot spa, if I drop it on a tiled floor will it break - and lastly - and most importantly ... is it an investment ????

cheers

I'd wear one while running, I don't wear a cap at any other time.

I've worn mine a few times but perfectly safe here in Dubai or Abu Dhabi... wouldn't wear it in unfamiliar places though like parts of London or Manchester.

I don't wear caps, so everything goes to my Dad. He wears the Tudor cap a lot. Never saw him with the Rolex cap on. Of course, he has over 100, so plenty in the rotation.

I’d wear one on the beach in Florida, but that is about it. Don’t want to be a target after my elevator adventure.

I'm lucky enough to have both a M3 and blnr both came with hats. Nope, won't wear either hats or jackets. Just wear the watch. I did get a watchtime magazine with BLNR on front cover from AD though.

Uh nothing wrong with wearing cheesy advertisement, i wear my bmw M cap when its raining, And have sported anything every company that has sent me a vest hat or umbrella. My favorite is the patagonia ones. Oh and the tote bags and back packs love those.

Not a big fan of wearing hats but have a fairly large collection. If you do find me in a hat it is because it is raining on the golf course and it is a Titleist hat. I do use a Rolex pitch mark tool and ball marker on the course, which I know is cheesy but I like the tool.
