THE ARGUMENT THAT WATCHES are the only item of jewellery it is acceptable for men to wear is perhaps wearing thin in an age when male rings, bracelets and neckless are becoming more prevalent. Watches are becoming less essential given the accurate time-telling capabilities of mobile phones, tablets, smart watches and other devises that are now essential to modern day living. So, as the watch becomes less useful for telling the time, the fact what is not essential makes it, once again, the luxury object it used to be. REMEMBER THAT MEN have a side of their brain that is logged into the functioning of mechanical objects. As a portable mechanical object, there is nothing better than wristwatch, so start collecting. As such, a serious watch should be mechanical, rather than digital or radio-controlled. Having so many hundred of moving parts all working accurately on your wrist is precisely where the appeal lies. 🚩 EXPERT TIP: If you're going to start collecting watches, then a secure safe is vital investment. Also, make sure that they are covered by insurance policy.
