Swiss mechanical watch or Apple Watch for daily use?

Sounds like personal preference. Apple Watch has practical benefits but a nice Swiss Watch will tell you the current date/time AND double as a piece of jewelry. My preference is Swiss watch with a metal band— looks good in a full suit as well as with shorts and a t shirt.


Preference is Swiss Watch.

There’s something uniquely beautiful and satisfying about a mechanical watch


First, decide the Job to be Done for your watch:
Functional: what it actually does for you (telling you the time/date, how it fits your short cuffs, etc.)
Emotional: how it makes you feel about yourself.
Social: how it makes other people feel about you

The Social aspect will be highly variable: a watch that will earn admiration in one group may get either blank stares or hostility in others.


You missed my point: each of us needs to decide the job they’re hiring a watch to do. It’s perfectly fine to ignore the Social aspect if it doesn’t create value for you.

That said, the vast majority of global watch sales are driven by social signaling

A real watch. Not a digital watch. I’ve had two generations of apple watches and they’ve all been crazy underwhelming

I just bought this as an everyday work watch and I love it. Solid brand that is part of the Swatch Group. Can be found online for much less than retail.

Had an Excel assessment yesterday as the second to last step in an interview process. I was using a new computer and long story short, had some technical difficulties (or maybe just my own incompetence under stress) and ended up only getting through half of the test. I’m on the fence about emailing my recruiter and explaining the circumstances/asking for a retest. Don’t want to come off like I’m complaining but also don’t want this to be the reason I don’t move forward. Any advice appreciated…

How do you stay confident in a situation where you’re seeing someone new who is a terrible texter, but shows a lot of interest/effort otherwise? Whenever we see each other in person it’s great, but his texting habits (i.e., taking hours and hours to reply) sometimes makes me wonder if he’s losing interest. I don’t know if A) I’ve been conditioned to think text frequency matters in dating when I shouldn’t care about it or B) I am a fool being strung along.
