Weird question (please don’t judge). Do any of you “display” your watch boxes? I have two Rolex’s and currently, the green boxes live in my closet. I bought a brand new home office desk and was considering “displaying” the boxes on my desk. Is this pretentious? Does anybody else do this? Thanks in advance for answering a weird question lol

Yes it is pretentious. If you really want to "display" your watches then get a winder, still pretentious but at least practical

Makes sense thanks! I’m 28 and just started making good money (grew up in a low income household in Africa) and I’m still trying to learn what is considered pretentious and what isn’t in American culture. Thank you

Mine are stowed away. Never know who will walk through the house. I’d rather “display” the one I’m wearing, because then at least it’s safely on my wrist. The rest are hidden away in the closet/safe haha.

Under a bunch of clothes in my closet. I don't need cleaners or similar walking off with one or all. I don't particularly think anyone will steal them and the watches are insured but there is no reason to leave $30K+ in a conspicuous spot.

Unfortunately, the boxes are decorative and meant for presentation, not daily use or storage. They wear and fade very easily. They should be in their white sleeve and put away out of the sun and heat.

Just landed a full time gig, looking to get some furniture so I’m not working on my parents’ kitchen table during this remote period. Any recommendations for desks and chairs? I’m hoping to find something that’s easy to assemble and break down for when I need to move, and something that won’t cost an arm and a leg.

I know everyone has a different kind of setup that works for them. I currently have a laptop, drawing pad, second monitor, and a desk riser.

My new job has a $500 wfh stipend I need to use within 30 days of my start date. I have a button standing desk, an ergo chair (it’s not Herman Miller but I’ve never noticed discomfort), a monitor that’s an older dell model with off color accuracy and sits on a stand. Have a keyboard, mouse, intuos tablet, iPad. I do motion graphic illustration etc. Any suggestions? An Apple Watch? lol

Need for travel has been one reason why some of our jobs could not be outsourced to remote delivery & low cost off-shoring. If travel is fully or >50% eliminated, it can be a real threat to management consulting as we know it. So there needs to be an “optimal ratio” of travel to client locations, home office, and WFH, to protect our consulting models. Since we need some face time with clients, and some interaction with colleagues, the optimal balance should be possible. Share your thoughts.

Question about white gold watches:
I've been fantasizing about the day I can afford a PP 6119G (which is still likely a few years away). Like with other jewelry, does the white eventually wear away to yellow? I assume it can be replated(or whatever the usual jewelry process is too get it back to white), but does that impact value at all if it's not "original"? I love the white/grey look of that watch, but curious about long term wear considerations
