1. Watches Show Style
The range of acceptable accessories for a man is limited. Watches make it easier for a man to display his sense of style. They are a form of self-expression – reflecting a hint of class, adventure or sports depending on the make of the watch.
2. Watches Are Convenient
Phones don’t keep you punctual. Watches do. A 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. A quick glance towards your wrist is a much classier way to keep tabs on time during a date or a meeting. Not to mention how rude it would seem to your companions if you pulled out your phone during a conversation.
On other occasions where it's advisable to leave the phone concealed – like the beach, a funeral, a wedding, a watch is a much more subtle and convenient way to check the time.
3. Watches Appreciate Quality
Most successful people are more aware of the importance of high-quality products than ever. In a world where consumers are looking for items that are long-lasting, wearing a quality watch, with a style that never goes out of fashion, remains a trend of high demand.
4. Watches Hold Memories
Whether it be a gift to yourself after you've reached a goal or a passed on heirloom. Watches carry memories. Whenever you put on a watch, you are always reminded of that time when you achieved something or fond memories of ones who have passed.
5. Watches Provide Simplicity
The best watches don’t use the latest technology. So when your cellphone runs out of battery – you can trust the technology that keeps running on your wrist.
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.
6. Watches Are Functional
Any item inspired by the military has a functional use. Watches included. They were first used in the 19th century by the military to synchronize manoeuvres during the war. Since then, specialised watches have been used in the depths of the ocean by divers and high up in the sky by aviators.
7. Watches Are Great Conversation Starters
Watches are the ultimate conversation starter. When mingling in a new crowd, there's nothing easier than starting a conversation by complimenting someones watch. It opens the door to learn more about the person, their personality, their style. Before you know it you could have found a friend for life. Because after all, you've both got similar interests!
