5 Reasons why you should wear a watch!

1) A watch reflects style and personality.

 For men, the accessories at their disposal can be somewhat limited to just a couple of items. Usually, those items don’t allow for the greatest level of self-expression like a watch would. Unlike other accessories, your timepiece is a powerful item that showcases your personality in a prevailing yet simple manner. Just like the clothes we choose to wear; a watch is a perfect accessory that can really showcase who you are! Whether it is an all-black design, which always portrays a sense of mystery or a blue face design which adds a subtle splash of color & sophistication to your outfit. A great timepiece is almost always guaranteed to elevate your outfit.

Despite the advancements and prevalence of technology which allow us to tell time without glancing at our wrist, a good ole’ timepiece has proved to stand the test of time. It is a strong statement piece that is continually gaining superior influence in today’s world – you can tell a lot about a man by just looking at his watch. It becomes a part of your identity and the more and more you wear it, the more you fall in love with the feeling it gives you.


2) A watch doesn’t just tell the time, it shares the time with you!

 People that have been sporting a timepiece for a while will always tell you that they have built a special connection with it. It is an esoteric feeling that holds quite a lot of value to the owner. It could be as simple as a watch gifted to you during your high school graduation, and that watch got the opportunity to accompany you through your miraculous college experience. If your watch was a gift it holds even more value and meaning, it marks a significant milestone in your life, from weddings, engagements, anniversaries to your greatest life accomplishments. It also can hold a great deal of sentimental value if it was gifted from a loved one. Those special memories that you hold in such high regard can all be traced back and your watch will forever have a deeper meaning behind it. In a recent interview with Jean-Claude Biver – a legend in the watch industry who single-handedly changed the business to what it is today was quoted saying “Don’t look at your watch to tell what time it is, use your phone. Your watch tells you much more, if your watch tells you time, what a shame!”. He couldn’t have explained it better. I’ll never forget the watch I received for my 20th birthday from my girlfriend at the time, who is now my wife. Looking at it always brings me back to that young carefree era in my life. Yes, your watch can most certainly tell you the time, but it's much more than that! It takes you back to your most precious moments. 


3) A great conversation piece!

 Just like fine art, a watch in itself is a masterpiece of design, craftsmanship, and self-expression. So naturally, it will always catch the eyes of those who appreciate such characteristics, and who doesn’t love art and great design?! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sparked meaningful conversations with random people at Starbucks, a bar or at a social event just based on a watch I was wearing or vice versa. Don’t underestimate the power of “Hey, nice watch you got there!”. That small introductory compliment opens up a great conversation with like-minded people. As silly as this may sound, you begin to feel part of a community. Any time you have the opportunity to spark a conversation with someone and end up learning something new about them or forming a relationship is always a win-win situation in my book! At the end of the day, we are all social beings that learn from one another through communicating. So get ready for some great compliments and even better conversations!

 4) Confidence.

 This may be one of the most important reasons on the list! Have you ever heard of the phrase “look good, feel good”? Well, watches undoubtedly make you look good, this, in turn, makes you feel good. When you feel good, you feel confident. So choose a timepiece that best suits your personality and let it do all the work for you.

 5) It is our reminder!

Glancing at your watch is your subconscious reminder to spend your time wisely. It is important to make time for your family, friends, hobbies and most importantly yourself! Your time is valuable, so begin to cherish every moment.   



Honestly, as an adult I never used a watch until I purchased the “Alexander Cavano: Catalonia-Espresso Rose and Gold Chrono” model. As you mentioned, wearing a watch is like joining a community. And now, I always notice every person with a watch and think to myself “what watch are you wearing?” Needless to say, I am a happy owner of a Alexander Cavano watch!

Loved reading this blog and love your watches. I originally bought a watch from AC for a very close friend of mine as a Christmas present, but it looks like I need to buy myself one. Everything is very high quality from the luxurious feel to the boxing to the watch itself. I can’t wait to start my AC collection!!
