    Wearing a rep into an AD is strictly verboten, more so gloating about it here. But wearing it to a job interview, and then getting the megabuck offer, or getting called and booted out, can be disclosed if one feels comfortable enough with that. Tales of this sort would be nice to hear ... not pure fiction, but embellished is just fine
    I am so sad I look at what the interviewer was wearing. He had an Explorer 2 and I wanted to tell him about puretime ...

            I dunno, most IT guys I know (including myself) hate Apple with a fiery passion. Wearing an iWatch to an interview with half the guys I know would almost be putting yourself at a disadvantage.

              I agree with you if we walk about ITs whom just starting or moving along the career path to upper positions, here you'll see a lot Android/Google OS based watches. Why? Affordable cost. But when you talk with high ranked managers, you find Apple iWatches. May differ from country to country.

                I am one of the hiring managers at where I work. TBH, I never pay attention to any candidate's watch or jewelry. Most of the time, it's covered by the candidate's jacket/suit anyway. If I notice the candidate's watch, I would compliment it anyway whether it is a Canal St Sub or TC V7 Sub or a gen Sub.

                As I mentioned in my earlier post, if I were the candidate, I would wear what common peasants wear to show humbleness or down to earth; like Apple watch or other low key watch.

                        Hard to say, but I'd probably wear my 116610 LN V6S 3135 Franken... or maybe my 16610 LN Franken (gen crystal/insert/dial/hands/DW/crown) - I think the latter one especially speaks of understated old school elegance. I'm a woman, and a doc - and at work (I wear scrubs and a white coat) I have worn both LNs as well as my 116610 LV Hulk, too. I live in SF, so there's a good chance some rich techie has seen it and knows it's a rep. Don't care - if they asked if it was a rep, I'd say yes. My value is pretty clear in what I do, not the watch I wear. I just happen to love watches.

                        So far, the ONLY comment I have ever had from a patient was when I was wearing the 16610 LN. At the end of a visit - my patient said these words, quietly and politely - "Nice watch!" They were spoken by a recently retired pro football player (Falcons), who was attending training sessions for other teams in the playoffs leading up to the Super Bowl.

                        I said: "Thanks!"

                          those who wear Apple watches, in my experience, are the most IT illiterate people I know
                          I'm in love with the shape of Roo // Sucker for 3-6-9 dials

                                Towards end of Feb, I have some meetings ~~interviews, and I wanted to wear this PP Calatrava. Ordered it before the end of past year, and after delays with bitcoin and after TD shipped it, took more than 3 weeks to receive. Well, here's the pic upon receipt.



                                Me thinks that even if Jeff Bozos wore it, or even if his newly divorced wife (the richest woman on earth when finalized), people would think it is a fake, with the free floating rectangle. Let alone a humble upscale peasant wearing it. So, instead of an "affordability" rank of 20k, will have to go to battle with a rank of 5-7k. Should see how that progresses
