Had the exact comment on when I wore a Speedy (not even sure which Rolex it would look like).

It’s probably all meant to be a compliment but just a reminder to us that we wear and collect watches for ourselves 😊

I’m curious, I Just had a Canadian company reach out for a remote recruiter role. Upon asking them for their benefits package specially since they have no physical presence in the US, I was told they don’t share that unless they are closer to making an offer.

Is this normal ? Most US companies share their benefits package with pride usually upon your first meeting. What’s your take on this? Would you invest time interviewing and not knowing what kind of benefits you will get ?

Sorry for the specific random question - but I inherited a Rolex datejust w a jubilee bracelet. The clasp is loose to the point of not staying closed on my wrist. I’ve seen online that you can gently bend one of the panels of the clasp to fix this issue. Has anyone else faced this issue / does anyone have insight into how to fix or if this fix is a good idea? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
