No one cares. Wear whatever you feel like.

The only time to be a little careful is if you’re going to some manufacturing site expecting to cut heads. Maybe leave the Rolex at home for that one. Otherwise no one cares.

The point isn’t being cut because you’re wearing a nice watch, it’s you doing the cutting while wearing it… implies the company has money to spend for expensive consultants while engaging in cost-cutting which is never a good look

I’ve been wearing my Daytona since 2018 and a total of 2 people have noticed.

To provide some useful advice, I think it depends on your level within your company. As much as people won’t admit it here, I’m sure many would think negatively and “family money” if a fresh out of college kid was wearing a Daytona or Nautilus. Use your sound judgment. If you tell us your watch you were thinking of wearing, we could give some thoughts. Most likely it will be “wear it and enjoy it”

Somethings in life are earned!

Your professional image around the office and to clients should be carefully managed, and it will depend on the environment. What people think of you is based on your work, but also how you present yourself. What you say, how you say it, and what you wear.

At home I wear a stained white T, gym shorts, and my sub, cuz IDGAF. The C suites at my old gig were all watch guys, so I’d wear a luxury watch daily there.

On the other hand, if I’m meeting a cost conscientious client, or in trial trying to say my client is a small mom and pop, maybe I don’t wear a watch that costs more than some juror’s cars. Hell, I’ve rented budget cars before to avoid looking too ostentatious. Other times I expressly wanted to look like an overpaid shark. But if I’m going to Mexico City or Brazil you can bet I’m leaving all bling at home…

To company office, I wear whatever. To client site, I play it safe to start.

This. Know your audience. If I’m going to a construction site I’m not going to wear x dollar loafers and X brand watch amongst people who may look at me like a trust fund baby(I’m not) vs if I’m meeting c suite executives in which case I’ll toss on the nice watch etc.

Bankruptcy, restructuring, layoffs, etc. leave the recognizable watches at home and probably stay away from two tone/ gold. Everything else wear whatever

As a fellow Kearney person, I just assume anyone who’s below prin with a nice watch either spends their money poorly or has wealthy parents - or both

Compensating for what lol. It’s a luxury good, of course it’s not a good use of money, it’s about enjoying the piece.

Do you not own any watches since you’re a manager?

likefunny

What I wear is no one else’s business but my own. I don’t flash it around, that would be “rude”. And if someone judges me based on what watch I am wearing, then the problem is not with me.

It’s a personal preference. For invicta, it just they way they price their watches. It’s ridiculous. As for TAG, it really has nothing to do with their watches. They have some good looking piece. It’s more of how they market their watches. Breitling is heading the same way. 😢😢.

I have a manager from another team who micromanages nearly everything I do. She seems to intentionally question my work and throw blame on me in front of other coworkers when it’s unwarranted. Unfortunately, I’m left trying to defend myself on a regular basis. HR and my manager have been involved, but the manager’s behavior stays that same. What can I do to help get the target off my back?

Advice needed: I have a manager that I do PM work for, including metrics, and often get asked to “re-run the numbers” but this is an incredibly complex process that takes a lot of time to make accurate in excel, even though it’s a single-figure output on a team/teams progress

Is there any way to make them realize the effort that goes into it on my side? I’ve stated before but they mostly brushed it off - worried I backed myself into a corner by not making it sound hard enough the first time
