So as as dude who does business in Germany, Thailand, China and perhaps soon Japan. I know for a fact that these 4 countries have a business culture that has a big basis on respect and at times can be pretty judgemental. Believe it or not, high end watches are pretty popular in all of these countries, and business heads will judge you mercilessly for what you wear and make lots of assumptions on the spot. The banks in Thailand won't even consider talking to you unless you pull up in a Mercedes S Class, and the Chinese will occasionally ask to see your watch, it's not uncommon to see Submariners, IWCs and Daytonas everywhere in Germany.
So, here's an interesting watch related thought experiment. When you envision a powerful, businessy, perhaps shady individual who knows what he's doing, what watch would you envision them wearing assuming they are somewhat interested in watches?
Currently wearing this:
Also, to any other business dudes out there, how do people view vintage watches?
Looking for $10000+ suggestions. Currently considering a vintage 36mm full Day Date (less thank 10k I know), platinum Daytona (perfectly matches me), new white gold 40mm with dark blue dial, that Rose gold Nautilus but without the chronograph or some aquanaut.
