Watches Tell More Than Just The Time And Date

By  | 

Many moons ago, we were able to tell the time by looking at the sun and its position in the sky.  Then the sundial and finally clocks and watches were invented.

Although the main purpose of a watch is to tell time, it has evolved as a fashion statement over the years. The era of the hourglass watches and sundials is long gone. Watches are now considered to say a lot about the person wearing it standing in the society. With the introduction of modern trends, it came to be known more for its decorative value than anything else. The once steel watch was transformed to gold, silver, white gold and platinum. The standard plain Jane unisex watch did a makeover to look grand with the studding of precious gems that sparkle and glitter on the wrist of both male and female. Time never felt or looked better.

Before the advent of the wristwatch, all portable watches that could be carried around were pocket watches. They were attached to a chain or rope and were kept in the pocket. The wristwatch is a smaller version of the pocket watch and is a fairly recent invention. There’s also been watches that are powered unique, like the self-winding, battery, digital, kinetic, light powered, and thermal powered watches.

Like with everything else, watches have evolved with time.  There are mechanical watches, solar, battery and kinetic powered watches. Mobile watches, ie. The wristwatch became popular and materials used for the straps were all metals and leather. Sapphire crystals are used in watches to advance and improve the quality and durability. Electronic watches with quart movements are more commonly used these days. They don’t need batteries and get charged with movement of the users’ wrist. A mechanical watch does need winding up but lasts longer.

The current trend of watches, can do more than tell time. Some watches have a GPS or MP3 player in them and some are in fact like mini computers. They also calculate for us, we can take pictures and watch movies. Stopwatches are used for sporting activities and they tell us the time down to the tenth of a second. Watches with heart rate monitors are exercise watches that monitor and let the user know the heart rate while they workout. This is really good for those with heart problems or if you want to train for specific races or just get fit.

Nowadays, people look at the style and design of the watch. There are certain watches made for different purposes. There are the diving and sports watches that are waterproof so they can be worn whist you’re in water. They have a covering on them to prevent them from getting wet. You can buy them just to protect your watch from getting damaged during day-to-day activities or when it’s raining. Watches talk of us and bring forth our personality. Everyone always says that you can tell someone’s style and character by their watch and I do believe this. Choosing the right watch based on our need and requirement is important.  For someone who collects time pieces, they’d be looking at the uniqueness of the metal, precious gems or the intricacy of the style and design.  Teenagers and fashionistas would look for watches that make a fashion statement with lots of new features.
