Friend: “Frank what time is it man? My phone died on me.
Frank: “Uh beats me! I have no idea either, mine is dead too.
Have you ever been camping miles from the nearest civilization without service or your phone service decides to be a real pain and crap out on you? I know it’s happened to me.
Now, I never use to own watches or care for them much. Besides, Who cares about watches right? Nowadays we have our phones and with a quick tap of the unlock button we can see what time it is with ease. However, as I’ve gotten older I’ve started to wear watches more often than not.
Why is that?
It first started as a style thing, I mean it still kind of is, but that’s beside the point. I noticed that all the bad ass operators from the military wore a lot of G-Shock watches, so of course I had to get one since I loved the military!
So, I went on line and purchased a G-Shock that had all the cool gadgets including: a stop watch, solar power battery, water proof, analog and digital time, multiple alarms and much more. On the other hand, why did this watch turn out to be a good investment, besides me wanting to be a “cool” bad ass?
This investment turned out to be one of the best purchases I could have made because of what my work life entails. First of all, I’m a baseball instructor teaching 30 minute, back-to-back private lessons every day.. I needed to keep track of time.
Now why should you care right? “Danny I don’t teach private lessons why should I care about watches? Plus, I don’t go camping..ever.
One of the cool things a watch can do for you is give you a sense of style. Whether you’re going in for that first job interview out of college and want to “dress up” your suit more, or accessorize your favorite outfit (for the ladies), watches are a great way to add confidence and sophistication to your style.
Just remember, your phone won’t always be there for you, so what’s your back up plan? A watch is a great tool to provide you with multiple time-keeping capabilities, as well as giving you a sense of style.
