What are your thoughts on the best type of watch and strap to wear to an upcoming job interview?”
At a glance:
I will assume that the job in question is a corporate position, as what you want may depend on the level of dress required in your industry. With that being said, the easiest option for most people is to wear a dress watch.
What constitutes a ‘dress’ watch?
A dress watch is a timepiece with a refined and elegant look to it. The dial is usually clean in appearance and devoid of additional bells and whistles. I would recommend you wear an analogue watch as opposed to a digital one.
You could also wear a nice looking chronograph.
Which strap type is best?
If you are keeping it formal, your best bet is to wear the watch on a metal bracelet or perhaps a leather strap.
If the interview is not ultra formal, there is no reason why you could not wear something like a NATO strap for a bit of colour. However, if you want to play it safe you should stick to leather strap or metal bracelet.
Should I wear bracelets with it?
No, leave those for casual wear.
I do not have a dress watch, what should I buy?
Check out my article on alternatives to Daniel Wellington watches for five budget options that achieve the minimalist look.
Alternatively, if you would like a cheap and reliable automatic you should buy one of the Seiko 5 range.
That’s all for today!
Thanks for reading. Until next time!
