Goldman Sachs Elevator explains the hierarchy of watches on Wall Street


Article: Goldman Sachs Elevator explains the hierarchy of watches on Wall Street

Business Insider ran an article Goldman Sachs Elevator explains the hierarchy of watches on Wall Street in which they argued that there is a correlation between watches and career levels.  They suggested that:
 
Interns would be best suited to wear a Rolex Oyster ($6,000) or an Omega Seamaster ($4,000).  
Analysts should wear a Rolex Submariner (7,000).  
Associates should move up to a Rolex Seadweller ($13,700) or a Blancpain Aqua Lung ($13,700).
Vice Presidents should wear a Rolex Daytona $12,500), a Vacheron Constantin Overseas ($19,000) or a Panerai Luminator ($23,500).
Directors should move up to a Brequet Classique ($48,000) or a Jaeger LeCoultre Master Tourbillon ($39,500).
Managing Directors get the Patel Philippe Nautilis Chronograph ($50,000) or the white gold Perpetual Calendar ($93,000).
Partners at the top of the food chain are noted to perhaps own some luxury watches but are not required to wear any of them - because they control time therefore don't really need to know what time it is.
 
At Watch-Rankings.com we agree with the notion that (usually) there is a correlation between the watch one wears and some part of the owner's life whether professional or hobby related or both.
 
However, we feel that Rolex is a bit overused in that hierarchy.  Most people don't know the difference between a $6K Rolex Oyster that an Intern should wear and a $12.5K Rolex Daytona that a VP should wear (as argued by Business Insider).
 
So here is our suggested proper list:
 
Interns should wear the equivalent of a Omega Seamaster ($4,000) to show an entry level of sophistication
Analysts should wear a Rolex Submariner ($7,000)
Associates should wear a Zenith El Primero 36'000 VPH ($10,000) or an IWC Portuguese Chronograph Automatic IW371446 ($9,000)
Vice Presidents should wear a Blancpain Aqua Lung ($13,700) or a Panerai Luminator ($23,500)
Directors are good with a Breguet Classique ($48,000) or a Jaeger LeCoultre Master Tourbillon ($39,500)
Managing Directors get the Patel Philippe Nautilis Chronograph ($50,000) or the white gold Perpetual Calendar ($93,000)
Partners at the top of the food chain should wear unique Ultra Luxury watches that radiate their achievement such as the Bovet Récital 18 - The Shooting Star ($300,000).  This sort of watch tells everyone who is the top dog in the game
