is like that one. wait till you are a couple of years into this and then you'll start trimming down, like me. :D

My watch "journey":

Tag Aquaracer
Steinhart Aviation Vintage
Tag Carrera Chrono Day-Date
Steinhart Limited Silver Edition Chrono
Pam 000
Pam 388
Pam 233
Pam 176
AP Royal Oak Chrono

AP Dual Time

More to come, I'm sure! :s13:

Very sorry, my fault. Else possibly still only the Aquaracer for u since u only have one wrist for wearing watch. =:p

what industry suit what? haha

Depends on the company and industry, say if I am interviewing for a journalist position in a high fashion magazine - I might wear a nice swiss piece and when asked to relate my personal experiences with high fashion, point to the wrist piece I have on and share.

It is always about what you bring to the table, if you can use what you wear as an advantage, why not?

Say, if I am applying to a Japanese multi-national, I can point at a Grand Seiko and relate how that is aligned with the company's XXX philosophy, that quest for XXXYYY. et cetera, et cetera.

Good advise in using whatever you have on you to your own advantage!

Heh Heh.

You must be a good actor though, can't be awkward here. If not, it'll appear contrived.

Ultimately you must relate to the interviewer as he/she plays a key role in whether you get hired.

If the interviewer thinks you'll be a great fit with the company with your own philosophy/great person to have around. You are more likely than not to get the job.

Eh polywatch is same as toothpaste.

Doesnt want on mineral glass. I tried before. Will work on hesalite or acrylic crystals.

Mineral glass is quite hard as a material. You need to order high grit diamond paste for the polishing itself and low grit one to finish off.

Alternatively you can go get a crystal replacement based on the model number

wearing a rolex sub while talking about high fashion isn't as solid when you're wearing hublot big bang.

you need to stand out.
Loud, Unique, Trend-Setting.

unless you're interviewing for a mens high end magazine.
then yes, a rolex will suit fine. haha
