1. Watches Are Convenient
Phones don’t keep you punctual. Watches do.
A wristwatch is the most convenient way to tell the time.
I don’t need a watch because I have a phone, which is a common response from a generation who is now questioning the adverse effects of constant cellphone use. Fishing for a cell phone on regular occasions just to check the time looks desperate.
2. Watches Are Functional
Any item inspired by the military has a functional use. Wristwatches included.
Wristwatches were first used in the 19th century by the military to synchronize maneuvers during the war. Since then, specialized watches have been used in the depths of the ocean by divers and high up in the sky by aviators.
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!
3. Watches Provide Simplicity
The best watches don’t use the latest technology. They are powered by ingenious mechanical clockwork technology that predates electricity. So when your cellphone runs out of battery – you can trust the technology that keeps running on your wrist.
4. Watches Signal Style
The range of acceptable jewelry for a man is limited. Many men are only going to be seen with three main accessories decorating their hands – a nice watch, a stylish pair of cuff links, and a simple wedding band if they're married.
