"Dress for the position you want, not the position you have!" This is something I had learned from a very early age before joining the work force. However not all of us learn this as early on and we discover the expectations as we go! What if you were just promoted and now have that position you always desired? Better yet, that increased salary that comes along with it? More importantly than ever, you're expected to dress a certain way to ensure how seriously you're taken and solidify your new place professionally & in life!


Picture this, you are expected at a company meeting with the CFO and VP of your division. You're wearing your sharply tailored suit, leather lace up shoes and short slicked hair parted to the side. You'll notice when walking into that room, you may be missing a couple of key items. You look over to your VP and he's sporting a really classy timepiece, then look over to the CFO and the cuff links he's wearing are monogrammed with his initials. It's now become clear! You've entered a new realm for dress code.

Let me make it easy for you and show how to break down for your understated powerful professional look. Starting with your watch.

Why is a watch important you ask? Well, let me ask you something. When you see someone wearing any kind of watch, what do you think?

Let me tell you what I see. The watch describes what type of man you are at first sight. Remember that 5 second first impression rule? A timepiece will immediately describe your personality and I'm going to show you how that's even possible!

For instance, try on for a cool, calm, collected demeanour the Raymond Weil Maestro.

If you're the type of man who's spontaneous and enjoys a weekend traveling somewhere new in that cool car, then think about wearing a Tag Heuer Carrera.

What if you channel your inner GQ man and are looking for a timepiece to talk about? I would suggest you see how the Breitling Transocean fits on your wrist.

Let me be the first to welcome you to this amazing world of watches and what they can do for you. Next step - start the collection. #StyleByJanika
