During meetings, our mind searches for every possible exit, even if we know that our body can't follow.
We want to kill the boredom with our phones. But looking at your phone during a meeting is considered rude and perhaps even insubordinate. It's not something you can easily get away with more than once or twice and still hope to keep your job.

While doodling is a time-honored way to pass the endless hours, you may have a hard time explaining why Elvis appears on your notepad.
But a watch...well, unless you have a smartwatch and are fiddling with the buttons in an obvious sort of way or issuing verbal commands to your watch (something that smartwatch wearers might do unconsciously, even in a meeting), you can certainly get away with glancing at your beautiful watch without anyone raising an eyebrow.
Here are five watches, pure, sweet eye candy, to keep you awake, smiling, and happy during meetings.
