Growing up, whenever we would ask what time it was, mom would always say “time to get a watch”. Since then I have done the same to my daughter, or for that matter anyone that asks that same questions of “What time is it?”
It seems watches have taken a back burner when it comes to telling time, our world has become more advanced and people are using other means to see what time of the day it is. Matter of fact I only have one wall clock in my home and it is a novelty one. Should we really be writing off watches to tell time?
Absolutely NOT, people are forgetting in many areas cell phones are not allowed. How are you suppose to tell what time it is when you are stuck in a hospital bed. Not only that watches make great accessories and go well with your wardrobes. Watches have also been around for many years, for instance the Seiko Watches have been being manufactured since 1892!
So don’t write off watches just yet, I am looking into getting my daughter her first watch so that she can become more responsible. Yes, I said become more responsible. Watches make great gifts for children to not only teach them time, but also so they can have more responsibilities.
So see watches have multiple purposes, telling time when all devices are dead, or you are in an area cell phones are not allowed, and teaching your children how to grow up to be responsible adults.
Do you still wear watches? I do during certain situations.
