Reasons To Wear A Watch- CONTD.
Posted on August 18 2017
- 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.
Not many men realize that they are wearing pieces of art on their wrist. An analog watch has a simple and consistent mechanism. The way of expressing it is where the bulk of the creativity comes in. Watch design is inherently artistic.
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. For many people – the movement arouses as much fascination as the dial and case.
2. Watches Make Great Heirlooms- A valuable that belongs to a family for many generations
Not only is a timepiece the perfect gift – it is the perfect heirloom. No matter what your philosophy is on the end of life, we can all agree that people can live on through the memories of those that knew them.
Owning timepieces from a different era is a remembrance of people who lived before you. Having their watches makes you think of them, in a real way. They wore these same watches which show signs of use, care 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. Like lovers who will be apart for a period of time. Their watch makes you feel closer to them always.
3. Watches Help You Create A Relationship With Time
Since the days of the sundial (and probably before) – men have been obsessed with devices that measure time. A reminder that our time is limited. Wearing a watch has a positive effect on my attitude towards time. I am more attentive to how I spend my 24 hours.
Beyond the technical and mechanical intricacies of a watch, men are fascinated by these devices that claim to mark and control time. 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 time friendship.
