The synchronized watch on the officers’ wrists pointed to the fatal second that was planned for the attack.
It was during world war I. Soldiers tired of fishing around their pockets to find the ubiquitous pocket watch started wearing it on a bracelet on their wrists. Until then, a watch worn on a bracelet was considered strictly women’s fashion. Soon, wristwatches become the norm as their practicality made pocket watches obsolete.
Let’s explore the many reasons every man and women need to wear a watch
WATCHES ARE CONVENIENT
Watches are the most convenient way to tell the time and keep you punctual whereas phones don’t. I don’t need a watch because I have a phone is a common response from a generation who is now questioning the adverse effects of constant cell phone use. Fishing for a cell phone on regular occasions just to check the time looks desperate.
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.
WATCHES ARE FUNCTIONAL
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 time. One of the big advantages of a watch – especially over a smartphone – is how long it can operate in the field. Many watches are made to either be self-powered through motion or use a small amount of energy from a battery. Think years of maintenance free time telling…..compare that to a smart phone’s 8 hours!
WATCHES PROVIDE SIMPLICITY
The best watches don’t use the latest technology. They are powered by ingenious mechanical clockwork technology that predates electricity. When your cell phone runs out 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.
WATCHES SIGNAL STYLE
The watch I am currently wearing has attracted more attention than any other item in my wardrobe. Wristwatches make it easier for them to display their sense of style. They are a form of self-expression, adventure, and sports depending on the make of the watch.
WATCHES EMBODY CRAFTSMANSHIP
a wristwatch is more than a time-keeper. It’s a symbol of tradition and history encased in a showpiece with extreme craftsmanship. Not people realize they are wearing pieces of art on their wrist.
WATCHES MAKE GREAT HEIRLOOMS
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.
WATCHES HELP YOU CREATE A RELATIONSHIP WITH TIME
Beyond the technical and mechanical intricacies of a watch, it provides a positive effect on our attitude towards time. Everyone can rock a watch. Wearing a watch is a great way to add interest to an outfit.
