Watches

Hi. I am an engineer working for one of the worlds biggest suppliers of offshore engineering equipment. I find myself in meetings with people making 3 or 4 times my salary. As a professional (especially in Asia) representing your success means alot. I cannot afford 7-15k watches. But for an amount of let’s say 2-3k, what should I look for in terms of style? Are there any no no’s I should avoid when choosing a watch representative for a person handling 300 million USD projects?

White or Black Watch Face?

I am looking to upgrade my watch and am a bit torn between a few different white and black watch faces. Some places Ive read to wear opposite what the suit is… dark suit then wear a white watch face and vice versa. Listening to Antonio’s Mans Guide to Style audio set, he says not to draw attention to the watch. In fact he doesn’t go into much more detail than that (well after listening to the first 16 or so mp3s) . On another site most everyone says white is classy and is much more versatile. What is the general consensus here? Do I just pick the watch I like or is there some method to this madness 🙂 Thanks!
