It is a sad thing.
Buzz Aldrin wore his watch on the moon, Steve McQueen lit up the screen in Bullitt wearing a Rolex Submariner and was dubbed “The King of Cool,” and countless presidents have worn a watch for their inaugurations.
It gets better.
Modern great men, including Bono, Pope Francis, Elon Musk and Bill Gates still wear watches. And we are willing to bet they all have smartphones as well. So there must be some other reason why they wear watches.
Wearing a watch is one of the most important things a man can do. Claymore Brothers, your source for custom suits, offers these powerful reasons why you should be wearing a watch.
A Watch Will Improve Your Style
Studies show that men who dress well are more attractive to women, appear more competent, smarter and trustworthy and are more likely to get hired and promoted.
That sound you just heard was hundreds of men reading this article ordering a custom suit in an effort to dress better.
One of the easiest and quickest ways to dramatically improve your style is to wear a sweet watch. Wearing a watch makes you look instantly more stylish and makes you look more put together.
Watches are Meaningful
Your watch, like any heirloom piece, may have some powerful memories attached to it. Perhaps you were wearing that watch when you proposed, or when you closed that huge deal. Maybe your watch reminds you of your father or grandfather, which just happens to be the original owner.
Watches are much more than just timepieces, they are symbols of our legacies.
Watches Prevent Distractions
Face it, every time you check your smartphone for the time, you wind up checking texts or emails or reading that article that keeps popping up on social media. When you glance at your watch to get the time, you are only getting the time.
Once you have spent a half hour watching cat videos. You have completely defeated the purpose of checking your smartphone for the time.
Gentlemen, do not fall into this trap.
Also, glancing at your watch to check the time looks a lot better than fishing your smartphone out of your pants pocket. This is especially true if you are in a meeting or with a group of people.
Watches are a great way to set yourself apart from the crowd. Express your personal style with the watch of your choice.
Watches are awesome pieces of masculine jewelry that signal power everywhere on the planet. Whether you own a dress watch, dive watch or chronograph, the watch makes you unique.
Mind the Rules
There are a few rules you should be aware of as a watch wearer. First of all, you need to buy a decent watch. When we say decent, we don’t mean you need to drop thousands of dollars on a Rolex, Audemars Piguet or Patek Philippe. Just make sure you don’t get a watch made from base metal or plastic. Get something that is stainless steel and quality, but not necessarily expensive.
Wear It Right
Don’t wear a Casio watch with your custom suit, that is just wrong. You also don’t want to wear your dress watch when yachting or your diving watch at a job interview.
Stylish men never wear brown shoes with their black suit, so make sure you wear the appropriate watch for your activity.
Beware the Implications of Checking Your Watch
If you are at a social event, in a meeting or on a date, don’t check your watch in front of others or very often. Just like it is rude to check your smartphone during a movie, checking your watch shows you have other things on your mind. You will know your date is over when she tells you goodnight.
Skip the Bling
Wearing a diamond-encrusted watch is fine if you are a rock star, but it has no place in the wardrobe for a well-dressed man.
And if you are wearing a suit off the rack, it won’t compliment your watch the way a custom suit from Claymore Brothers will. Order yours today.
