Have you ever wondered why there are still people that would spend a lot of money just to get a good mechanical watch? Well, that is because these people appreciate the craftsmanship and the history behind the said timepiece.

While women have the luxury of wearing any piece of accessories they can think of; a man is only able to wear a watch and nothing else. If you want to look like a madman or a clown, then, by all means, wear whatever you like. But, if you want to look suave and exude confidence? Get a good watch.

Today, I am going to talk about the reasons why men, even in this day and age, should still wear a watch.


It is a Style Piece

Look at men’s magazines out there and you will always find pictures of men that wear stylish watches. Well, there is a reason why they do that and that is due to the fact that watches can make any man look amazing.

If you are not convinced, I want you to go out there and go around the mall. Find people that are not wearing watches and compare them to those who do. Can you spot the difference in terms of appearance?

Have Control Over Your Time

Do you know why successful businessmen would always wear watches? That is because aside from having the ability to tell the time, watches can actually make a person become even more productive.

You see, although smartphones can definitely tell the time and do more things, they are more of a time-sink than anything else.

Becoming productive means looking at your watch and allocating your time to doing the things that you need to do.

It is Not Distracting

The people who constantly tell others that there is no reason to buy a wristwatch are also the same people that are now looking for ways to ditch their new-age devices.

Smartphones, if anything, are huge distractions. You do not believe me? Just do a quick Google search about teens not being productive in this day and age and you will always find that smartphones are behind all of that.

As useful as they may be, smartphones can also do the opposite in that they are nothing more than make you a productive individual. Unless you have amazing self-control, it is still best that you opt for a casual watch instead.

Women Will Notice It

I do not know about you, but women actually love men who wear watches. In fact, it can be a great conversation piece more than you think.

A man who is seen wearing a watch is usually deemed as someone who is responsible, who is organized, and values their time and others’ as well.

Whether it be a casual timepiece or a formal watch, there is always some value in wearing one, regardless of the event or function.
