Nostalgia with Watches


Watches // Daniel Wellington*

Now, I have a few watches in my collection,  and if I am being honest I am too embarrassed to count. Yes, a normal person might say I probably have too many, I don't disagree with them, but that doesn't mean I love wearing them any less.

I think my love for watches originates itself from my Dad. He also has an eye for watches and in a heart beat if he could he would spend unthinkable amounts of money on that perfect watch. Growing up with him purchasing watch after watch and constantly waiting for him whilst he browses outside out the jewellers windows at the endless Brietling aisles is what spurred my love for watches. Watching someone you look up to repeatedly wear the same thing or browse the same aisles when you are younger gives you a sense of nostalgia as you grow up.

Some people see watches as an practicality, others as an accessory. They are a versatile, traditional accessory that is living on in a technological world where everything is now done digitally. Does anyone even wear watches now? Or do you just look at your phone? The way I see a watch is as a timeless piece to complete an outfit, it finishes a look with a classic feel from a day wear no one would step out of the door without a watch strapped onto their wrist. Are we living in a world where the tradition of wearing a watch is dying out? I sincerely hope not. Even with the technology advances in products such as the Google or Apple watch, a watch is a watch and it looks as if they will still be a staple for many generations to come, even if not it their traditional format of just a watch face.

  1. I absolutely adore watches and wear one everyday because if I didn't I wouldn't be able to tell the time at work and it would drive me insane! I just love the feel of a watch on my wrist and this one looks beautiful!

    1. I'm the same, I almost feel like something's missing when I forget to wear one!
