In the corporate life, watches are more than daily companions; they are tools, pieces of jewelry, as well as an important part in shaping up our professional image. Depending on the industry you are in certain watches are off bounds while others fit in perfectly. Here are four powerful creations that mean business as much as you do!
Can diamonds on watches be worn in a corporate setting? That might depend on the field of business you are in, but when an option a Cartier is always a solid choice. Their timeless, dare we say Parisian, elegance makes it that they are above the rites of fashion and can be for years to come. Another advantage is that their classic dials not only look good but can also be read at a glance, something that will be appreciated when the heat is on!
The Rolex Datejust is not just one model, it is, in fact, a vast line-up that offers a lot of variety on what is still one of the best mechanical watches around. From sober all steel versions on an oyster-bracelet to full gold versions set with diamonds, they have it all, as well as everything in between. That makes it almost impossible not to find one to your liking, and why it has been a (corporate) favorite for decades.
Breguet Reine de Naples 8965
Caroline Murat was not only Napoleon Bonaparte sister, but she was also the Queen of Naples. She was a loyal client of Breguet and also ordered from him the very first wristwatch. Today Breguet still has a watch named after her in their collection; the Reine de Naples. This oblong shaped watch is, however, a clear creation of the 21st century, not only with a modern dial design on mother-of-pearl but also with a mechanical movement that incorporates an escapement wheel, balance spring and in-line Swiss lever in silicon.
Breitling Navitimer 1 Automatic 38
While Breitling is clever enough to not designate the new Navitimer 1 Automatic 38 as either a ladies or a men’s watch, it is perfect for women who like a more sportive watch. Because it lacks a chronograph function, the dial is rather clean, while the beaded bezel gives it a slight vintage touch. The date function can be handy when going about your day, and with a diameter of 38mm, the Navitimer 1 has plenty of wrist presence without being overbearing.
