Peers don’t notice or comment on my Rolex. Clients always seem to notice and spin up conversations around it. 🤔

What with us consultants wearing fancy watches, clients are likely thinking they pay us too much!

Technically if they’re paying a lot they want someone who’s doing well on their project right? If I rocked up in a Casio they’d be wondering why they even paid me to be there.

M1, I think the idea is having dough and being humble enough not to brag or show.

I’m a slight watch guy. I’ll likely notice what your wearing but wouldn’t say anything.

Datejusts/Day-Dates with fluted bezels, obviously anything with yellow/rose gold, and Submariner Dates are going to be the most recognizable by the widest audience. I suggest knowing your client before wearing one of these, since it can certainly be bad optics. Just about anything else is fair game. I’ve had way more positive interactions by being able to find another “watch guy (or gal)” at the client, or even on my own team. Just don’t make the assumption that someone with a nice watch is actually a “watch person”; that can be embarrassing for either you or them or both.

Anyone on your own team who has an issue with your watch likely just spends their money on other things, is insecure, and/or is uneducated in the world of horology. I typically just let them gently weep while they watch my BLNR float effortlessly over the supple keys of my Lenovo (haha, jk, but I do try to turn them into watch people).

Most Rolexes don’t scream look at me unless they are yellow gold, so it’s normal not to get comments. Do clients make you feel awkward that you are wearing a more expensive watch than them?

Nobody’s ever noticed or commented on my Polar Explorer II 16570. I have an orient Mako II that I wear a lot on a colorful nato (casual client). I get comments on the orient ALL THE TIME 🙃

Is Jomashop fine to buy watches thru, especially watches sub $1k? Also, any thoughts on this piece. I have never bought a “real” watch and know this doesn’t hold a candle to what most of you post, but I like the design and figured it could be a good starter? I’m eyeing a Tudor Black Bay for my wedding present from my babe which will officially be my first “real real” watch.
