Watches are an essential part of a professional wardrobe, especially when you are working front and center with important clients. Despite what you might think, you should not count on your cell phone to keep you updated on the time. Glancing down is distracting and appears as if you are bored with the conversation.

Now may be the perfect time to put a new watch on your holiday wish list. It will be a great addition to your professional wardrobe and a good investment for your career.
