People from all walks of life wear one accessory in which, design and functionality is important. Even children of the ages 7 to 10 adorn this accessory despite not fully understanding its function. Eventually, the purpose of the watch develops in these young minds and the design, is equally as significant.
Many brands have flooded the watch market and buyers are spoilt for choice. Even sporting brands such as Adidas and Nike have a collection of watches and it was just last year that Samsung released the Samsung Gear – a timepiece that doubles as a phone too. With these newer and trendier selections, watch brands such as Rolex, OMEGA and TAG Heuer have to effectively entice the younger market without compromising quality at competitive rates.
When one buys a watch, does one expect it to last beyond 5 years? Perhaps it is the aesthetics that move people to purchase a timepiece and with a warranty of two years, it seems like a fair deal. However, consumers should think to invest in the long-term. How much more precious a timepiece would be 10 years in the future? Sentimentality towards an object may seem like a wrong reason to purchase an item yet, one does not throw out a sturdy piece of wooden furniture after a decade, right?
Besides its function, a watch is a most inconspicuous accessory that could make a difference in one's outfit. In his article ‘5 reasons why you need to buy a watch' on FHM.com, Jordan Waller couldn't have summarized the social reasons to own a watch any clearer: women shouldn't be the only ones that can accessorize. So if you have yet to splurge on yourself (lately), a watch should be an option on your list!
