Why You Need A Watch [Featuring Daniel Wellington]

Think of a simpler time, a time without iPhones, a time where watches were the most important piece you had. Ok, I 

thought about it for a minute and got deeply depressed. I wouldn’t be able to function without my phone and I’m sure all

 of you are the same. Without it I would never get anywhere on time. But wait, what about watches? Well a watches sole

 purpose ‘was’ to tell time. So why do we need them and why are they now more popular than ever before? 


Probably the biggest reason that men are wearing watches today is to add a little something to their outfit. We don’t

 have many chances to wear jewelry but a good watch is always something we can confidently rock. Sure a naked wrist

 is fine but a wrist with a timepiece is something to look twice at. Wear yours with a casual outfit to add that pop of

 coolness or wear it with a suit and tie create an extra level of class. A well designed sleek watch can easily be dressed

 up or down so if you’re not into suits then a watch will also look great with your sneakers and jeans.


I know I said we have our phones to tell time but lets face it, sometimes it’s just not appropriate to pull it out and

 check the time. Let’s say your in a meeting bored out of your mind. Looking at your phone would be completely

 disrespectful to whoever’s talking but a quick glance at your watch wouldn’t even be noticed. Or lets make it even more

 relatable and say you’re on a first date and it's not going so well. Just move the hour hand forward a few hours and act

 shocked about how the time flew by so fast and how you've gotta head home. Actually that’s a terrible idea.

 Please don’t do that! Just have another drink.


The great thing about a watch is that you can have it and wear it forever. The same can’t be said about many other

 pieces in your wardrobe. I’m pretty sure this blazer I’m wearing will be out of rotation in about a year but the watch will

 most definitely still be center stage on my jewelry table. Invest in a quality watch and it could proudly be passed down 

to your children or just kept for yourself because there's nothing wrong with being selfish.


If you haven’t already got a go to watch or if you’re looking to build your collection then check out Daniel Wellington. I'm

 sure you know them. It's what all the cool kids are wearing. They make some of the sleekest watches on the market

and have a great variety of styles and straps to choose from. I'm wearing the Dapper York watch made exclusively for

 those dapper gentleman but there are plenty of other options out there. Have a look at their Instagram page
