I don’t normally wear a watch, and neither do many of my friends. We rely on our cell phones – because that’s what people do now.
And that works great, until I have an offsite work meeting that I need to time. And these are usually important meetings – like interviews with job candidates – or team meetings with VIPs. It might be obvious to glance at a watch during a meeting, but it is definitely unprofessional to keep checking a phone.
So I am watch shopping. Like a grownup.
What do you think? Are watches necessary anymore?
