Luxury watches on Wall Street: A watch guide for bankers
With his Twitter account and the allegedly authentic conversation excerpts from the elevators of the billion-dollar corporation Goldman Sachs, which he shared, John LeFevre has caused quite a stir since 2011. After all, 750,000 followers regularly read the conversations he posts between employees in the investment banking sector. When he was exposed by the New York Times in 2014 that he had never actually worked at Goldman Sachs, LeFevre quickly wrote a book. This book includes a watch guide for employees in the financial sector, with which we have some issues. The basic rule of thumb for a banker's watch is that it may be expensive, but it must show success without being ostentatious let alone wasteful. In other words, one is always performing a balancing act. We'd like to offer our own guide to watches for bankers.
