Top Classic Watches for Professional Men
A watch is not simply an instrument to check time, it tells a lot about a man or woman, their thought processes, their ambitions and most importantly the fact that they are serious about maintaining time. Successful professionals go out of their way to make a fashion statement with what they have on their wrist. They are aware that when they sit down at a meeting or for any discussion with peers or clients, a good classic watch will say a lot about their personality, whether they mean business and whether they can be trusted at all. One thing is sure – that people notice the watch they wear and often judge them on it.
A professional with standing in his field will not treat a watch as a good buy; it will be more of an investment to complement his expertise. Take the case of Mick Fabar, a person who has created ripples not only in the Australian construction industry but internationally too with his concept of energy efficient homes. If he wears an ordinary and run of the mill watch, it will affect his reputation but wearing a high end one will add to his image of a leader and innovator.
