I keep seeing everyone talking about $9 and $14 watches....what's the deal, is everyone cheap, or broke?!?
A watch is a piece of jewelry you wear every day...functional jewelry, but jewelry just the same. Guys don't generally get to wear as much 'bling' as women, so you need to make what you do wear, count.
If you're not a broke college student...the grow up a bit, and spend a little cash and get something that is NICE, and makes you look more like an adult.
If not just for women (and yes, the DO notice things like watches and shoes)...do it to look a little professional in your work....that matters too.
Try to dress somewhat sharp, and develop those communication skills...it will often take you further than just sheer tech genius alone.
i agree 100%. even though i have my cell there is something to a great watch. i bought my wife a movado SE that always gets complements http://www.wonderwatches.com/item/Movado_Sports_Edition_Ladies_Stainless_Steel_Watch_0604844-1301.html i think i bought hers for $1200 at the time. i usually wear a fossil although i am now looking at a nice bulova.
