I am not much of a jewelry man, never have been. I am not one to wear rings, bracelets, necklaces, I just don’t feel comfortable wearing them for some reason. One thing I do wear though is a watch and as I don’t wear any other jewelry I tend to spend good money on a decent watch.
Young people nowadays seem to have jewelry all over the place. Wrist bands seem to be a rite of passage for anybody traveling around adorned with a message from a charity or some cause or other. Middle age men still seem to want to wear as many necklaces as possible, the bigger the better it seems, that goes for rings too, and some of course wear the gold or silver bracelet. Add in the people who wear nose studs, nipple rings, eyebrow earrings (some even wear earrings) and you have a billion dollar jewelry industry that feeds the needs of generations. Luckily I have managed to bypass these particular fads and go for functionary jewelry like a nice watch.
The watch in the picture is my latest decent watch that I paid a handsome price for. It’s a Citizen Eco-drive with a solar powered battery cell. It’s a nice looking watch and one I only wear for special occasions or when I am going out, certainly not an everyday watch. The problem I have had with this watch is that the battery has run out, probably my own fault I concede. Being solar powered you need to keep it in some kind of light, I left it in a hotel safe for a couple of days and of course it had no light whatsoever so powered down. I am now told it will cost over $100 for a new battery due to the complexity of it. I think I’m going to have to swallow this price at some point and get it fixed unfortunately and I must remember to keep it in at least some kind of light. The short time it was working, I was very impressed with it, and it looks good, feels good and tells the time and date exactly.
The watch on the right is my everyday watch, one I recently bought online. It’s a Yazole Quartz, there are plenty of these around but they vary in quality. What I would say is this is certainly one of the best for an everyday watch. It is comfortable and tells the time perfectly, I don’t need to know the date so that’s not a concern, just a nice work watch, going out shopping, gym, everything watch. I am also not worried if it gets too damaged or scratched because it is great value for money.
I bought mine at the Eternal Beauty Store, link below. I have to say the service was excellent and I got free shipping, which was great considering I am traveling a lot at the moment.
When you are traveling around it’s not easy to stay fashionable, or even to feel like dressing up, wearing a watch is at least one way I can stay respectable.
