It is just a sad sight that not a lot of men nowadays are wearing men’s watches in Malaysia. Some say that it is outdated and some say that there are now smartphones that can also help tell the time as well.
Although I wouldn’t argue that smartphones indeed have the ability to tell you what time it is, a wristwatch is not dated by any means. If anything, it is only going to be better from this point onward.
Today, I am going to reveal some reasons why every man should still wear a wristwatch to this day.
Important People Wear Them
Did you know that prominent figures such as Bill Gates, Buzz Aldrin, Warren Buffet, and even Pope Francis are all wearing good wristwatches? Yes, they do! And yes, let that fact sink in. If these people are still wearing wearable timepieces, why shouldn’t you?
They Can Dramatically Improve Your Style
Picture a guy that wears a watch and one that doesn’t. Of the two, which do you think look more appealing to the opposite sex? Which one is more trustworthy and is better-looking? If you answered the first guy, then you are correct!
Watches are not mere accessories that tell the time but it actually dramatically improves your appearance. Whether you are just going on a casual stroll or you are attending a formal event, having a watch on will make you instantly more appealing to others, especially those of the opposite sex.
It is Easily the Best Accessory that Men Can Wear
Women have basically the freedom to choose whatever accessories that want to wear to accentuate their outfits. But men really do not have the same luxury. Only a watch is acceptable to wear other than your coat and tie.
But, what I love about watches is that they are not ‘loud’. They improve your appearance by being subtle because it just accentuates what you are wearing without being too outlandish.
A Watch is a Worthy Investment
What do you think are the things that are considered as ‘good investments’? Well, if you can use them for quite a long time, that is one of the main criteria of a good investment.
Watches are great investments in that they are made to last a really long time and they can also withstand the elements as well. When taken care of in the best possible way, you can even sell them at a watch collector’s auction or you can even hand it down to the next generation as well.
Using a Watch to Tell the Time Prevents You from Being Stuck on Your Phone
Some would argue that watches no longer have a place on your wrist because there are already smartphones available in your arsenal. However, if you whip out your phone, there is a huge chance that you will be tempted to do other things.
Not only is using a wristwatch more convenient if you want to know what the current time is; it also helps you stay away from the one thing that keeps you distracted as well.
A Traditional Watch is So Much Better than a Smartwatch
Despite the smartwatch being more technologically advanced than the traditional watch, the latter has more value than the former.
Every year, a new version of a smartwatch is released making the old one obsolete. An old wristwatch, however, only appreciates in value the longer it stays on.
