The importance of watches in job hunting

In today's world where smartphones are widespread, some people may not feel the need for a wristwatch because the time can be checked immediately by looking at the screen of the smartphone. However, until just a few years before smartphones became widespread, wearing a wristwatch was considered a manner of working as a member of society.

Therefore, it seems that some of the people in charge of interviews still have the feeling that "watches = manners as a member of society". A wristwatch is not always necessary for job hunting, but it can make a good impression, so it is better to have one than not.


Surprisingly, many of the customers who come to the [ARKRAFT] store are consulting about purchasing a wristwatch for the first time as a job hunting or employment celebration. When asked by customers, it seems that the purpose is to appeal their commitment with a reasonable amount of money. I also heard that the interviewer happened to like watches and the story bounced. Therefore, it is also recommended as a gift for students who are about to graduate or get a job.
