Good "entry level" watch?

When you are in a job interview, you should be judged by your appearance. I interviewed a guy a few weeks ago, dressed like a slob, wore a hat, his iPhone rang during the interview ... I thought he'd do alright at the job, but those impressions he left made me not want to hire him. I did not once look to see what kind of watch he had.

So you didn't need to go to the watch tie breaker, those are easy decisions. :-b

I think appearance is a consideration, but the importance of which depends on context. I wouldn't mind hiring a software engineer who dresses like an emo kid because simply, we don't have a dress code. As long as they perform well in the interview exams and their skills/attitude are a match, they're as good as in. Now, if he was applying to be a biz dev manager, I might care more about dress and appearance, since he'll have to reach out to potential customers and any impressions of him reflects us as a firm.... and no, what kind of watch he wears isn't a criterion. :-b

This, Invicta under $200. ;-D

This is what I said earlier, too (IIRC). I have five Invicta watches that I wear to work regularly depending on what I'm wearing and $200 was probably as expensive as they got. I get a lot of compliments on them. I go with the Lupah ones in different colors since I have a relatively informal work environment now, but even their more dressy watches look real sharp.

Snootiest. World*. Ever. It's not my fault, that that's how it is. And to whomever mentioned the tech jobs and biz dev job, yes I agree, but it's a job where I'll have to deal with people, so appearance does matter.

Do you want quartz or automatic? That is probably the first question you should ask yourself, and that is a good way to narrow down the choices. Then think about what you want from the watch (accuracy, size, sapphire, ect...).

I once asked a client of the most expensive lawyer in toronto what he liked about his lawyer and one of the things that he mentioned was that he liked the fact that he wore a Timex Ironman. That's the watch that I've always worn, I've since upgraded to the Atlantis. I have a stainless steel birks watch that's so heavy I can't lift my arm that I wear once a year at formal occasions and a gps watch that is nice enough to wear to work but the timex is my everyday watch and they last about ten years.
