A wristwatch is one of those elements of dress by which some people will choose to define you. Watches are like jewelries which can serve as timeless collections.
In today’s age when the current time or something close to it–blinks on every cell phone, laptop, microwave and dashboard, wristwatches are still vital. We are obsessed with time, paradoxically pursued by it and never having enough. Whether we are running late for a plane, dashing to a meeting or waiting for a friend on a street corner, we all share a universal mannerism: the reflexive wristwatch check. And seeing as how we spend so much of our lives rotating our wrists and checking the time, we may as well have something beautiful or cool or interesting to look at.
The appeal of a fine wristwatch goes well beyond mere time telling. Strapped snugly on the left or the right, watches speak of class, taste, functionality and, of course, punctuality. Beside neckties, they’re one of the few fashion accessories that reveal a man’s personal style. And a quality wristwatch can be passed down for generation
