Wear a watch in 2018? Is it even necessary?
How can something so small as a wristwatch be so significant and important in our lives? It seems that even though time flies, the wristwatch is an object and timekeeping device that has been, and continues to be, an object of significance in our society. Wristwatches have been a wardrobe standard for over one hundred years, which begs the question: What are the top five reasons to wear a watch?
Wristwatch = Convenience
The most obvious reason is convenience. Worn on the wrist, the wristwatch is always with you and more easily accessible than a phone. Plus, it’s more socially acceptable to take a quick glance at a wristwatch than it is to pull out a phone and check the time during a meeting or conference presentation.
The ingenuity of the wristwatch design is that it is totally hands-free, (no Bluetooth option necessary), which is an important factor that cannot be undervalued in our modern and rapid society, where using phones during driving can imperil the lives of countless other people. Wristwatches are also designed to operate for years, whether they are mechanical or automatic, so you know they won’t fail you at the exact wrong time like a phone battery can, which for some reason seem to be particularly subject to Murphy’s Law. Trying to make sure you are on time for a date with the love of your life? Don’t rely on a phone, get a wristwatch.
Professional Watch = Compliments
This is something many people don’t think of when purchasing a watch, but it is one of the most overlooked perks of wearing a watch. A nice wristwatch gets you compliments, and tons of them, and who doesn’t love compliments? The watch is an item that can either make or break an outfit. No matter who the watch wearer is, though, a well-chosen watch can make the wearer seem more professional and sophisticated, and for business settings, wouldn’t you rather by looked over than overlooked?
Comfortable Watch = Unbeatable
Something that many newbies to the wristwatch world overlook is the actual craftsmanship that goes into making a timepiece. When it comes to wristwatches, everything is made by hand. Literally.
A watch means business
Wristwatch wearers will notice after some time that wearing a watch allows one to develop an intimate relationship with time, and if time truly is money, then being in control of your time is a powerful skill to have.
