How Do You Keep Time?

Lots of people are using their cell phones for time keeping these days. Most of the younger people I know don’t even have a watch.

A lady I know still collects Micky Mouse watches though. She wears them too. But I think it mostly for show because she also has a cell phone she checks the time on.

I still wear watches. I have worn one most of my life. When I was little I got the toy ones all the time and couldn’t wait till I was big enough for a real one.

I got a special more expensive one as a graduation gift later. That one had different bands you could change to go with different outfits.

A really nice watch can make an outfit look much more expensive than it is. And since mine is attached to my arm it is much harder to misplace than a phone!

Watches are getting harder to find in stores these days though. Even many department stores are not stocking them like they used to.

You can still find some really good ones online though.You can find Invicta watches  online as well as many others.

I like the look of the chronograph watches. They just look so cool.

    The practical watch industry is really suffering as people who used to just wear a watch as a functional item are becoming less and less. The designer (show off) watch markets are still doing well but as far as people who used to just wear a watch to check the time the decline is really on.

    Watch makers need to come up with something pretty special if they want to survive into the next decade!

    I own three watches which I rarely wear. I mostly wear them if I am going to be somewhere where it would be bad to look at my phone. I love the convenience of having the time on your wrist though instead of having to pull out your phone!
