A wrist watch is a priority in the daily ensemble of successful business people, men and women. Business people who wear wrist watches are generally perceived as being more organised, reliable, and professional. Here is why!
Sporting a quality wrist watch, professionally or personally for prestige, is something that dates back centuries. In today’s modern world, with the popularity of smartphones and smart watches, it appears perhaps that the humble traditional analogue watch may have been relegated to the back seat. Or so it seems.
Here are a few solid reasons why people who wear a traditional watch are considered more successful. Release the hounds!
Managing time is one important aspect in the lives of busy business people and industry professionals.With the ubiquity of mobile phones and popularity of Social Media you’d realise that you’re a notification away from being distracted anywhere, more importantly at work. Imagine a brain surgeon half way through an operation seeing an email come through!
In recent times, especially with the number of connective devices we carry about daily, it could be argued that productivity in the work place has taken a nose dive. This has prompted many companies and businesses to outlaw the use of smartphones and social media during work hours. Except for ‘work related’ purposes.
Besides this, it makes you look unprofessional. To your colleagues, you might appear to be checking your email or Facebook stream. Whereas you just checked the time!
There is a solution to stave off these endless distractions. During work hours, change your smart tech to a traditional timepiece. It does its job well, without distracting you with endless notifications.
They Are Always On Time
For those of us who are repeat offenders in the art of rushing, especially prior to board meetings and the never-ending worry that goes with it – what if this happens or that happens or my phone battery dies on the way – then investing in a quality timepiece would be a rewarding exercise in its self!
In addition to that, it again could be argued that professionals who wear a wristwatch in comparison to their colleagues who don’t, simply have one less thing to worry about.
They Appreciate Good Quality
Successful people know the importance of buying, using and surrounding themselves with quality in their business life and in their personal lives as well. This penchant for going after quality items stands to reason it will rub off in their work ethic as well. Striving to deliver quality work in business and projects that they work on. As a mark of their style, they take the effort to purchase quality timepieces crafted as a mark of success.
It Shows They Are Organised
Wearing a watch shows you are a responsible and organised person. It also makes you appear reliable and marks you off as one who values his or her time. Even when you go for an interview or a meeting, these are the things that people will notice about you.
They Have Elegant Style
There aren’t so many accessories that can be functionally worn in the workplace or in business meetings, without appearing unprofessional. Fortunately, a wristwatch is not on the prohibited list, as well as being a great conversation starter.
Furthermore, you can showcase your personal style and personality with carefully selected wristwatches that have been proven to stand the test of time and use and who knows, maybe, just maybe, you can still end up passing it on as an heirloom to your progeny.
To finish with some ‘timely’ advice, a Dad joke I know but embrace wearing a traditional wrist watch today, and ‘watch’ your style soar.
