Watches: a timeless accessory

By Michael Torres

For decades, watches were indispensible, and they helped society function in an efficient manner.

However, smartphones, laptops and other electronic devices have a built-in clock, which has led to a decrease in the utility of watches.

Although it appears that smart devices are leading to the extinction of watches, electronic companies like Apple and Samsung have introduced smart watches.

Despite the entrepreneurial endeavor that these companies have embarked on, recent smart watch sales have not been successful.

According to an article published in The New York Times, Apple sold an estimated 1.5 million to 3 million Apple Watches, which is less than the 3 million to 5 million watches it anticipated to sell.

Maybe smart watches aren’t a hit, but the sophisticated look of traditional watches is undeniable.

When I was younger, I never really cared for watches: they were useless accessories.

However, this summer I decided to purchase a Fossil brand watch after a good friend began to wear one.

I decided to purchase the watch online because of the larger selection and clearance sale prices.

The watch I purchased has a rose gold trim and is accompanied by a navy blue wristband.

At first, I felt uncomfortable wearing a watch, but after a few days, it became second nature.

Before purchasing a watch, consider how it will work with your wardrobe. I tend to wear neutral colors, so I found it practical to get a watch that would match those colors.

Watches provide a timeless appeal that adds to the aesthetic of any outfit.

If you’re unsure which brands to trust, I would recommend:

– Fossil


– Timex

Whether you prefer electronic or traditional watches, adding this accessory to your wardrobe will add a sophisticated and professional touch to anyones’ style.
