Watches date back to World War 1 or even before that. It was during World War 1 when soldiers were tired of fishing through their pockets for their ubiquitous pocket watch and came up with a solution of wearing them like a bracelet on their wrists.
Very profoundly until then, watches worn on the wrist or in the form of a bracelet were considered to be a women’s thing.
Initially the idea was turned down and ridiculed by the masses big time. But gradually when they began to realize the functionality it provided while being on the wrist as compared to being in the pocket it became the trendiest of things to adorn and the most in vogue accessory.
In present of technology people might turn up to argue that wrist watches are getting obsolete and there is no practical need of it when one has a smart phone handy.
Well, we have come up with some very solid reasons why men should get back to classics and start wearing wrist watches all over again. Have a look!
Everything in the world is constructed for a purpose of its own. A phone is to make calls and to be in touch with people while a watch is required to tell time and keep you punctual. So not confusing the functionality of one thing with the other let phones do what they are meant for.
It may appear highly ill mannered and desperate to pull out your phone to check the time at a gathering, meeting full of highly qualified professionals or even at a party it will sound rude if pull your phone out every now and then. Watches are more convenient and handy to quietly have a look at the time.
Anything that has been invented by the military is bound to serve the purpose right. As wrist watches were first used in the 19th century to synchronize military exercises. Ever since, watches with specialized functionality have been used deep down in the oceans by the divers and high in the skies by the aviators.
One of the biggest advantages of using a wrist watch we come across is the number of hours it can operate. Most of the expensive watches tend to charge up by the motion of the hands or utilizing a meager amount of energy from the batteries. Opposed to the smart phone serving 8 hours max.
A smart watch is constructed beyond the most basic functions a watch can perform. From telling the date to displaying the temperature, from informing the fishermen about the hide tide to telling the distance covered by the athletes, a smart watch is capable of doing much more by just being on that wrist of yours.
STYLE AND TASTE
Watches signify style and depict the classiness of your taste. It may be considered old school but the panache and finesse it associates with your personality is unparalleled and exceptional. A watch lover can convey a lot about his personality and soberness. For people who prefer a high-status bling on their wrist, a Cartier tank francaise can be understated, timeless and incredibly masculine accessory to indulge in.
