How a Sleek Wristwatch Completes Your Look
Nowadays, smartphones are replacing old-fashioned, analog wristwatches that millennials deem obsolete. After all, wristwatches serve only one purpose—to tell the time. Yet, the digital landscape’s greatest, such as Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Warren Buffet each sport one.
Impressively, you’ll find that a leather watch does more than indicate the hour, minute, and second. Here are a few reasons you should consider a wristwatch as one of your fashion staples.
Reason 1 - They Create an Air of Put-Togetherness
The addition of a wristwatch to your nightly get-up makes for an instant style boost. Wristwatches don’t adhere to trends. Instead, they are timeless—a classic accessory that can stand the test of history.
Plus, if you’re a fan of James Bond, you’ll know the value of an elegant wristwatch. Anyway, does checking your smartphone over your wrist really scream 007? We didn’t think so.
Reason 2 - They’re a Straightforward Accessory
Some men aren’t nearly as daring enough to try out an earring or leather bracelet. As such, wristwatches make for a stunning and safe accessory to don on any day. Other than a tie and pocket square, fashionable men can replace frivolous scarves, gloves, and suspenders with a reliable wristwatch.
Reason 3 - They are a Versatile Investment
Contrary to the likes of Rolex and Tissot, a wristwatch need not cost an arm and a leg. In reality, you can make an investment just below $200 for a 40 MM White Polished Steel accessory with a stand-out mineral glass finish.
Plus, you can wear it today, tomorrow, and for the rest of the foreseeable future. As with any investment, a high-quality wristwatch should provide a generous return on your money. In this case, you’ll want it to elevate your outfit, whether you love to don a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or prefer a sport coat or something dressier.
Reason 4 - They Keep You from Becoming Glued to Your Phone
Think about your daily routine—does the majority of it involve your smartphone? If you’re looking to get out of the habit of spending hours thumbing through social media or tapping away at an addicting mobile game, a wristwatch can keep you from sneaking a tempting peek at your screen when you don’t have to.
Reason 5 - They Represent Adulthood
When was the last time you received a wristwatch? Was it after your university graduation? Was it during your wedding reception? Thus, a wristwatch, in some ways, celebrates your adulthood.
A reliable watch will cost at least $100—something your parent or relative isn’t going to spend on a child. With one, not only do you exude maturity and refinement but also learn to acknowledge growth within yourself.
After months or years of wearing a wristwatch, you’ll learn that it can speak volumes about your personality and how you carry yourself. An ideal accessory will complement your look and promise longevity.
