Until the early 1900s, a watch worn on a bracelet or wrist was considered strictly women’s fashion.

Initially ridiculed by the public as a silly trend – wrist watches soon became the norm as they practicality made pocket watches obsolete.

1. Watches Are Convenient

Phones don’t keep you punctual. Watches do. A wrist watch is the most convenient way to tell the time.

I don’t need a watch because I have a phone, is a common response from a generation who are now questioning the adverse effects of constant cellphone use.

Fishing for a cell phone on regular occasions just to check the time looks desperate. A quick glance towards your wrist is a much classier way to keep tabs on time during a date or a meeting.

 

2. Watches Are Functional

Any item inspired by the military has a functional use. Wrist watches included.

Wrist watches were first used in the 19th century by the military to synchronize maneuvers during war. Since then, specialized watches have been used in the depths of the ocean by divers and high up in the sky by aviators.

Telling the time is the basic function of a wrist watch and it can be used in any environment.

 

 3. Watches Provide Simplicity

The best watches don’t use the latest technology.  They are powered by mechanical clockwork, which will last a lot longer than your cellphone battery power.

When you wear a watch – it’s less likely you will fall back on your phone as a distraction. Often, checking the phone for time results in a rabbit-trail of activities including checking every messenger app, email and Facebook.

When you need to keep track of something as important as time – a unique device to measure and manage it is justified.

 

4. Watches Signal Fashion Sense & Style 

The range of acceptable jewelry for a man is limited. Many men are only going to be seen with three main accessories decorating their hands – a nice watch, a stylish pair of cuff links, and a simple wedding band if they’re married.

A wristwatch makes it easier for men to display their sense of style, as it communicates a lot about the wearer’s personality. For those that prefer a bit of high-status bling on their wrist, a Rolex can be an understated, timeless and incredibly masculine accessory.

As the saying goes – boys look at their smartphones  to check time – men look at a watch. 

Call it what you will, a quality luxury watch is a man’s equivalent to the engagement ring.

 

Watches Embody Craftsmanship5. Watches Embody Craftsmanship 

A wrist watch is more than a time-keeper. It is a symbol of tradition and history encased in a showpiece with extreme craftsmanship.

Some watch houses have four craftsmen working on one watch for several months – designing complex pieces of technology by hand.

Art on a watch can come in multiple forms. The dial can literally be a painting, or the design of the instrument itself is pure art.

6. Watches Make Great Heirlooms

We can all agree that people can live on through the memories of those that knew them.

Having the watches of your loved ones, makes you think of them, in a real way. They wore these same watches which show signs of use, care and and love.

A watch collection is also a legacy. It doesn’t necessarily have to be worth a mini treasure – but leaving your watch(es) to someone you care about is in essence passing on values that were important to you, to someone else.

7. Watches Help You Create A Relationship With Time

Men have been obsessed with devices that measure time. It’s a reminder that our time is limited.

Wearing a watch has a positive effect on my attitude towards time, as I am more attentive to how I spend my 24 hours.

The only other obsession matched with the passion for this inanimate object is the passion men share for cars. A watch collection is far easier to maintain and less expensive as a hobby.

 

Everyone can rock a watch. Wearing a watch is a great way to add interest to an outfit, especially if you’re a guy.

Find a wrist watch that really stands out from the rest.

It could be the beginning of a long friendship.
