Watches Are No Longer for Telling Time
There’s nothing quite as convenient as always having the time right at your fingertips, which is why watches have remained such a popular fashion accessory for so long. But with the huge increase in the number of cell phones, a lot of people have chosen to take the watch off and check the time, instead, on the phone. For this reason, the tried and true functional watch has essentially come and gone. It had its heyday, but now when people choose to wear a watch, it’s because they think the look of the watch adds something to their outfit.
This is why unique watches are becoming so much more common. While it used to be difficult to find a colorful or different watch, this is now the norm. With faces that are bright colors or contain an alabaster inlay, these watches sport unique face shapes and interesting bands. In this way, watches have become increasingly more like bracelets. And the emphasis has definitely shifted from telling time to offering aesthetic appeal. It’s also not uncommon to see people sporting watches with dead batteries simply for the look of the watch!
