No Objections: These 4 Watches are Perfect for Lawyers
Appearance makes the first impression whether you’re facing potential clients or investors. Style matters, and many jobs require you to present a polished appearance for you and your company in the most professional way possible.
Not only is a watch used to tell time, it can also tell a story about you. The watch you wear is going to affect the image that you want to create.
Watches are a common theme in the law practice. For lawyers, finding the right watch for the job can be a challenge as they need a timepiece that reflects their authority while avoiding something too flashy.
In addition, it’s also important to have the right choice and precaution of not being pre-judged before you begin interacting with people. If you are a lawyer looking for a suitable watch, we have some ideas for you.
In some cases, it's not a good idea to pick a model that is expensive or showy. You don’t want your clients to think that you’re overcharging them. It’s either good to buy a budget watch that looks a bit more expensive than it is or a luxury watch that nobody would know costs as much as it did.
Citizen is one of the legends in the watch-making world. With over 100 years of its history, the Japanese watch brand makes super reliable watches.

Many of these watches have a 180-day power reserve and a 200m water resistance, they also sport great construction that is affordable and tough.
Citizen watches are an excellent choice for you if you prioritize value as they’re not the most flashy models on the market. In addition, they will work for years without any maintenance whatsoever.
Eco-drive watches can be worn on any occasion from casual events to the courtroom, and you won’t have to worry about how much power your watch is packing.

Recently, Tag Heuer debuted a collection of its iconic Carrera sports watch family for everyday elegant wear. It was an overhaul for the line, and TAG Heuer designer Guy Bove focused on putting the classic essence of the Carrera into a wearable package meant for today’.
The new TAG Heuer Carreras feature a day/date complication on the 41mm-wide Carrera, but the 39mm-wide version only has a date indicator window at 6 o’clock.
It’s an “updated classic” style Carrera, which has a lot of core Carrera elements on hands and hour markers, but there are some new things such as a revitalized case and bracelet.
With the new versions, TAG Heuer did a lot to make the case feel a bit more elegant, which is perfect for today’s office environment.
The new Tag Heuer Carreras will go with a lot of situations. It’s casual enough for socializing but also serious enough to lend something positive to their character.
Best of all, it looks comfortable, and isn’t going to remind anyone of a Rolex. Of course, at more than $2,000 USD, it isn’t cheap, and could easily be challenged by a Seiko Presage.

Since then, the Marine Chronometer has become a classic in its own right.
