Are you using a smartphone? I am pretty sure that you are. In fact, you’re probably using one to access and read this article. Even though they have indeed become one of the best things that we can use every day, I would still argue that it is not the best device if you want to track time.
Sure, it does tell time, but a watch handles that with so much flair. In fact, I do not even use my smartphone for that; I use my casual watch and a host of other watches that I own.
As a watch collector, I might be construed as someone who is biased, especially when I say that a watch is more than just an accessory that tells the time.
In today’s article, I hope to increase your appreciation for wristwatches by telling you their importance, not only as a timepiece, but how it can help make memories as well.
It is a Nice Accessory Piece
Women have the luxury of just wearing a whole lot of different accessories and that is great. It helps compliment their looks. However, men only have a few different accessories that they can wear that are socially acceptable and I think that you know what the theme of this article is: Watches.
A watch can instantly add style points no matter what you wear. So long as you are wearing the right timepiece, you are always going to catch the attention of the ladies.
For instance, it is quite flattering for a man in full business attire to be wearing a mechanical watch with a metal strap than someone who is in the same outfit without the said timepiece.
They Can Stand the Test of Time
Aside from adding some style points, watches are amazing because of the fact that it
can stand the test of time. My grandfather actually gave his Patek Philippe watch to my dad and he is still wearing the same watch to this day.
Of course, that would also mean that you have to take care of the watch but what I am saying is that with the proper maintenance, you can certainly give it to the next generation if you wish.
Different Types to Suit Different Tastes
One thing that I really love about watches is that there is a different one that will suit your tastes. I, for one, have a fondness for sports watches due to my active lifestyle. I also love the fact that I can wear a more casual watch and wear it with confidence as well.
Whether you buy an inexpensive Quartz watch or you buy one of those luxury watches with its own unique watch movement, it is actually your choice.
It Helps Create Memories
One last thing that I would like to say about watches is that they help you create memories. It can help tell you the exact time you met with your partner. It can help you know the exact date of your important events and it can certainly help you be on time with your children’s important life events as well.
