Finding a Women’s Watch to Wear to the Office

Watches are a status symbol and a form of personal expression—
you can tell an employer a lot about yourself by the watch you wear.


Soon after I started my first corporate job, I was struck by how much of a charade it all was. Stiff collars and pantyhose. Hierarchies and performance review rhetoric. Something called “corporate casual.” How real was this situation anyway? It seemed like an alternate universe.



But then I realized it was very real, I was lucky enough to have been cast for a part in the situation, and it was my life so I might as well play my part to the fullest.



In the professional world, you can’t control what people think of you, but you can control the class and cultural signifiers you adorn yourself with. Watches are a status symbol and a form of personal expression—you can tell an employer a lot about yourself by the watch you wear.



By functioning as a sign of professionalism and status and even as a point of conversation, your watch can boost the impression you give and might even help you land a job.



It all comes down to personal style, your budget, and the image you want to project. A crazy, cool Swatch might do if you’re at an ad firm but be out of place in a law office, where you’d be better off with a vintage Omega or a Rolex.



For corporate culture, I decided to focus on conservative women’s watches. What kind of timepiece would you wear if you wanted to project competence, practicality, and good design sense?

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Transcendentalism does not appeal to many in the Ivory Tower. The wiff tells me that quite a few of the Pumps and Pearls team at her employ sport Rolex. Stainless steel versions tend to dominate. When I asked her about in the cubes or the trenches she replied "I haven't
paid attention to that , just looks like jewelry"
