Have you ever thought: “I don’t need a watch; I can check my phone for the time”? Think Again.
It’s a common response when I ask people why they don’t wear a wrist watch. Yes, I know. Because I can relate. I used to be “that guy” too. Now, whenever I hear that answer, my usual response is “Yeah but a watch won’t consume your life the way a phone will, it’ll actually help you live it.” This however, is usually not enough to change people’s mind, so I decided to write this article.
5 Reasons Why Every Man Needs a Watch…
- Shows Respect Fishing for a cell phone on regular occasions just to check the time just looks desperate. Not even mentioning how rude it would seem to your fellow human companions, if you pulled up your phone during a conversation. A discreet glance to your wrist is a much better way to check the time. The same goes if you are in a event where you are advised to turn off your phone or keep it away such as in a meeting, wedding, funeral or the beach.
- Simple & Reliable When ever your cellphone runs out of battery – you can trust the technology that keeps running on your wrist.
- Signals Style The range of generally acceptable jewelry for men is limited. Therefore, a watch is a key piece that gives men a way to express style – reflecting a hint of danger, adventure, attitude and sports depending on the style of the watch.
- Time is Money A watch is an excellent reminder that our time is limited here on earth. And reminds us to live every day to the fullest. Wearing a watch has a positive effect on my attitude towards time. I am more attentive to how I spend my 24 hours.
