There are so many perspectives to a wristwatch. For the watchmaker, it might be a marvel of precision, for the expert a piece of art and for the wearer a means for expression. Watches have been a status symbol since they were invented. Upscale timepieces aren’t technologically necessary, but they have something to say about who wears them. In social contexts, people look at your watch to determine things like your social position, level of education, taste and of course wealth. Times have changed for wristwatches from being a timepiece to a fashion accessory. Nowadays most people rely on their phone for the time.
