5 Reasons to Wear a Watch


We all know Paris is always a good idea (thanks, Audrey Hepburn!) but so is wearing a watch.

With the move to smartphones, smart watches and calendar notifications keeping us on track and on time, what is the benefit of a traditional timepiece?

Here at Foxleigh Watches, we certainly see value in our products and find that our customers do, too!

1. Convenience - #Minimalist

A wrist watch is the most convenient way to tell the time. A quick glance towards your wrist is a much classier way to keep tabs on time during a meeting than fishing for your phone from a pocket or bag. Wearing a wrist watch literally saves you time!

2. Style - #stylecrush

Unlike for women, the range of acceptable jewelry for a man is limited. A nice watch is an essential item to bring your style from boy to man. A quality luxury watch is often a man’s equivalent to the engagement ring.

As with all fashion choices, watches can also be a form of self-expression not just function. They can reflect sophistication, adventure or sports depending on the style of watch. For women, a watch is another great accessory for your outfit of the day. The best part? Everyone can rock a watch.


3. Creating a Relationship With Time - #Foreverlate

Wearing a watch can have a positive effect on your attitude towards time. Knowing time itself is wrapped around your wrist, can make you more attentive to how you spend your precious 24 hours.

4. Conversation Starter - #Keepitsimple

Need an ice-breaker or just excuse you talk to someone? If they’re wearing a watch, ask them for the time! Similarly, wearing a watch could make you more approachable.

In a time where it’s becoming less common to talk to a stranger without doing some social media digging first, it’s a natural conversation starter and could lead to new friendships or even romance!


5. Craftsmanship - #liveauthentic

Watches can often be thought of as antiques and family heirlooms. They are passed from generation to generation and treasured as sentimental pieces. While other fashion items can be seen as disposable and go out of style, a watch is often a careful crafted piece meant to last a lifetime.
