5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Wearing A Wrist Watch

5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Wearing A Wrist Watch

Wrist watches are now making a return as smart watches, but millennials are still reluctant to wear them. These amazing pieces of functional jewelry lost a lot of their popularity as Generation Y grew up checking the time on their phones, which made the wristwatch obsolete. The latest generation of people are not attached to their watches as those before them were; Generation Y is not going to invest in a diamond Rolex to wear it their entire life, daily, then pass it on to their kids and grandkids, as a family heritage. Millennials are not wearing wrist watches, at least, not the conventional ones.

But apparently, the new generations are changing their minds.

1. The Wrist Watch is an Image of a Successful Businessmen

If you’ve ever seen an episode of Mad Men, you’d know all those men wear stylish wrist watches, and this is because the image of the successful man wearing a watch is iconic. In business, people who wear wrist watches are seen as more reliable, organized and professional. Even if women embrace watches and turned them into elaborate bracelets that show the time, the image of a watch winder is still linked to men. This is it: watches are symbols of manhood. Most articles and commercials you will see about watches are going to be focused on men, rather than women. The reasons why watches are manly can be traced back in cultural suppositions of history and have a lot to do with power, money, and other manly attributes.

In a world dominated by smartwatches, smartphones, and other smart devices, the old watches seem to be out of place, but this is not true. There are multiple reasons why you should be wearing a wrist watch, regardless of whether you are a man or a woman.

2. A Wrist Watch Can Keep You Safe

This is probably the most unexpected reason to wear a watch: it can keep you safe! In the fast-paced world that we live, con artists use very complex schemes to steal expensive mobile devices – or the simplest plan ever: they simply ask you what the time is. Then once you take out your smartphone or tablet, the thief does his or her job and runs away. As simple as that! If you wear a wrist watch, you will be able to tell the time without endangering yourself or your belongings.

3. A Wrist Watch Makes You Look Classier

If you hang out in a cafe, you will be amazed to see just how many people place their smartphones on the table even before they take a seat. This is a severe case of lack of manners, but for millennials who don’t wear a wristwatch, it is a necessary gesture. Well, dare to be different! Be the one person in the room who doesn’t need to flash their smartphone in front of everyone to check the time. Be the person who can enter a meeting without the smartphone, because you can tell the time without electronic devices.

4. A Wrist Watch Shows People You Are Organized

When you go to a job interview and wearing a watch, the interviewer is going to notice you over the other candidates. Wearing a watch shows you are a responsible and organized person, who is willing and able to adapt to new situations. When everyone else is relying on smartphones and smartwatches, wearing a wrist watch is going to make you stand out, giving a message to the people around that you know how to value your time and your money.

5. Express Yourself With Your Watch

Women can wear a lot of accessories, but men are only entitled to wear watches and cufflinks. These are the only two accessories a man can wear at any time, with any type of suit. Of course, men can wear other jewelry as well, but at workplaces where there’s a dress code, it’s mandatory for men to hide these accessories. However, you never have to hide your watch, which means you can express yourself with that watch. You can choose from a wide range of sporty, colorful, shiny, rubber watches – for any day and every situation, you can find a new watch, matching it with your own personality.

Wrist watches are highly versatile and functional, so don’t let them die. Embrace them and don’t be shy to be the person that says “it’s quarter past nine!”
