I used to have a pretty big collection of automatic watches when I was a teenager – everything from gorgeous expensive designer watches purchased for me as gifts to cheap pink plastic ones I paid just pennies for at a local market.
As it is now I don’t wear a watch at all and have not done so for several years, I don’t know many other people who wear them either. There seems to be much less of a need for traditional wrist watches these days as everyone walks around with various electronic devices and mobile phones that all display the time on them. Plus for me personally I am always listening to the radio which gives time updates constantly.
I would like to start wearing one again though as much like with any jewellery they are a great way to accessorise and each piece can have a special meaning. I remember how much I loved one of the Invicta Watches my parents bought for me when I got my GCSE results and how proud it made me feel every time I looked at it.
I am sure that watches will come back into fashion with the younger generation at some point and I personally can’t wait
