Loads of people wear watches just for time. Yeah people like to have stylish watches and expensive watches but the same can be said for shoes. We all (nearly all) need to wear shoes but some people choose to get fashionable ones and spend a lot of money on them. Its not simply a piece of jewellery (jewelry). Long live the watches!!

What do you guys think of not wearing a watch? - Page 3post #31 of 976/22/12 at 2:28ampost #32 of 976/22/12 at 2:30amHave always worn a watch - feel nude without one. But it really isn't that big a deal. How do you know the time if you don't though? Unless you're one of those fannies who won't leave their mobile phone alone for more than a minute and always puts it ostentatiously on the table in the pub, that is.post #33 of 976/22/12 at 6:33amQuote:Originally Posted by Oleg

Not always a good idea, especially when your precious iPhone 4S goes swimming in a puddle of Yanjing Beer.post #34 of 976/22/12 at 6:41ampost #35 of 976/22/12 at 7:40ampost #36 of 976/22/12 at 7:42amQuote:Life is pain.Originally Posted by Dolle DolfQuote:I honestly don't get that. Wristwatches were invented/came in to widespread use because people found it easier to look at their wrist than to flip their cellphone pocket watch out. And now, in the age of technology, people are reverting to that kind of behaviour. You can't tell me that getting your cell phone out of your pocket, or holster, pressing a little button to light the display, looking, then pressing the locking button agian, and then putting the thing back into your pocket, is more convenient than a quick glance at your wrist?If I'm carrying a phone that tells time, what's the point of having a watch ?
Situations where my phone is not in my pocket are also likely to be situations where I don't care about what time it is, so watches are just jewelery to me. In my office I can see the time on 3 different devices without turning my head. I think I can safely spare myself the tan line.post #37 of 976/22/12 at 7:48ampost #38 of 976/22/12 at 7:57ampost #39 of 976/22/12 at 8:01ampost #40 of 976/22/12 at 8:05ampost #41 of 976/22/12 at 8:48amQuote:This. I like to be able to just look at my wrist to tell the time, rather than having to pull my phone out my pocket. Also, using a phone to tell the time is kinda like wearing a graphic t-shirt; it serves it's purpose but it has no class.Originally Posted by Oleg

Expensive watches does worth the money, when you can pass on to the next generation and they definitely will wear it. Unlike many another things which needs a lot of money to maintainpost #43 of 976/22/12 at 9:29ampost #44 of 976/22/12 at 12:01pmQuote:
The point is that extending your arm and discreetly pulling back your sleeve to glimpse a classic wristwatch is a much more elegant movement than fishing around in your pocket (or, God forbid, your belt-mounted holster) for a mobile phone.post #45 of 976/22/12 at 12:26pmQuote:Originally Posted by lee_44106
You can choose not to wear a watch, but keep in mind that it's the watch that will identify you into an iGent category.
In light of the fact that everyone is wearing a soft-shouldered, minimally padded, spalla camicaca jacket, paired with a grenadine tie in a FIH configuration, while rocking flat front pants with 2" cuffs and a pair of double monks (unstrapped of course for maximum sprezz), the watch is the only thing to tell us whether you are a wanna-be or a true baller.
So ask yourself, are you satisfied with being a wanna-be?
This is the most compelling argument against wearing a watch I have seen so far.
