Luxury Watches

I’m sure this has been asked but what is/are the reasons for your interest in watches/timepieces? For me, I’ve always worn watches even as a wee little lad to make sure I was on time (or maybe I was

I appreciate watches as objects of permanence in a world of throwaway goods.

I started wearing good looking quartz watches a couple of years ago because I think they make business dress look much more put together. I only recently got into mechanical watches because A) they’re cool, and B) like everything else I take things way too far with items I am into.

For me a fine mechanical watch is about the only accessible, physical, concentrated dose of human ingenuity applied at human scale. Just marvelous.

More fashion forward than I thought). Now I appreciate time more than ever and just marvel at the intricacies in some of these complications. Also as a form of expression a watch can say a lot about someone...

I was in my late teens when cellphones came to India and it was in my very early 20s that I could afford one. Till then it was always a wrist watch for time and now I feel naked if I don’t wear one, even though I rarely use it to check the time.

Never cared for watches, but was gifted a sub for my 20th birthday. It took a couple months for it to grow on me and I haven’t taken it off ever since... I’ve bought other, more expensive, watches but I always gravitate back to my sub...

always liked watches since my first casio (early 1980’s). now watches are still a fascination and I feel like it is the only acceptable big jewelry purchase as a guy. father had a rolex datejust when I was growing up then he got a sub. when I got married my parents gave me a zenith el premiero and when I turned 32 my dad gave me his sub as he had upgraded to a yacht master. I love the sub (two tone) - recently had rolex refurb and service it (came back like a new watch).

All my cousins are in the watch business and growing up I used to help them. Got to learn about them early.

Saw an interesting role but trying to figure out how this will affect my earnings and career trajectory if I leave consulting (currently 2nd year consultant).. What's the salary band for an Associate Director at AbbVie? Is AD considered the same as Snr Manager at other firms? Should I be pushing for a Director level role? Any advice?

If we have a prolonged recession because COVID lingers much longer than we had hoped, won’t the consulting be kind of fucked for the next 1-2 years? Like no travel benefits whatsoever, long hours, no learning from being at client, limited project opportunities for most industries, always worrying about utilization, layoffs, etc.

In tech consulting are technical MS degrees valued / higher compensated? I’m sure it is not as big of a difference as an MBA for strategy, of course.. but nothing?

I started a new job a few months ago and the female lead on my team told me on my first week that I should have come in two levels below the level I was hired for. She then told me the only reason I came in at the level I was hired for was because of my salary requirement and I would not get promoted easily/quickly (keep in mind I’m not thinking about this during my first week lol). Since then she has never brought this up but I still feel weird about it.
