I recently started an online business selling watches. While studying my niche market, I was amazed at the wide range of styles and brands available.
You can choose any watch brand to discover watches with various styles, watch faces, the color of watch straps, stainless steel watches, gold plated watches even wooden watches available. When you step into the expensive watch collection, you discover a whole new collection of diamond watches, pure gold and titanium watches, many precious metal watches, and jewel-filled watches.
Watch movements also vary from manual to fully electronic, with some modern watches having heart, temperature, velocity and watch monitors, and a wide range of analytical information available. Then there are dive watches that go down to 4,000 meters, and now that's a long way. Still, deep-sea divers need reliable watches that can handle the pressure at these depths, so it's great to see a set of wristwatches that cater to individuals and all other divers who enjoy diving in oceans or caves.
Glitter watches are a big part of the industry because everyone willing to look different from the next-door girl. New watches come on the market daily, so keep searching or looking for your favorite style of watch. There is just something that makes you happy when you look at all the watches available now. I saw a watch the other day with belts going in different directions to tell when you were intrigued about how it worked. It would be an honest discussion with your friends, or at a party.
In the early days, people could tell the time from the sun disks they placed at the entrances of their homes or businesses, which show the midday and the four sun phases as it travels during the day, and the other forms of clocks to tell time were water clocks, not easy to move on the go. In the fifteenth century AD, with the invention of the springs, portable watches and clocks were produced. German locksmith Peter Heinlein created "Nuremberg eggs" that could be placed on the table instead of hanging on the wall. They only had an hour hand because the minute hand was only inserted after a long time, and they lost time like a spring not wrapped but was popular among the wealthy individuals Because it was a portable watch.
When the humble spring has invented, the world of watches, the world of watches and clocks, took a huge leap forward. Men weren't wearing wristwatches in the nineteenth century, they were thought to be very feminine, and only ladies wore them. The men had a watch on a chain to keep in their jacket pocket, called a fob pocket. Remember in old movies, that someone standing at a train station had his watch on a gold chain out of his pocket Fob checking the time, and today there are still fob pockets on the jacket of men's 3-piece suits. It wasn't until someone attached one of these watches to his wrist using a piece of the chain to keep track of time and continue working until he asked a watchmaker to make a watch that he could fix it on his wrist were several lugs. Attached to both sides of the watch and a strap has been put on so that he can wear it.
It took some time for this to become common because the first actual use was in the military, and soldiers wore watches to synchronize battle plans, check the time without fumbling for a pocket watch. Soldiers wore watches in Boer War and WW1. After the Great War, more men wore watches as they did during the war and it became known as a tribute to those who served their countries on the battlefields, so from that time on, wearing watches wasn't only for women. By 1920, it was a fashion for men to wear a watch also, and a whole group made new designs of watchmakers. Glass faces were replaced by plastic, different metals were used for the case, precise hands were added, and the rest is history.
When I was a kid, kids didn't wear watches unless I was from the upper class because most families couldn't buy a watch for their kids. When I was playing one day, I remember I asked my friend what time it was, but we didn't have a watch, so he raised his sleeve and looked at his arm and said, "I felt a freckle," and we burst into laughter, indicating how far we had progressed in a short period. How many children have an hour today?
A few years later, I got another hour from a close family friend. He was an American pilot, and Bulova was gold, and I still have it today, even though I am not using it. Whenever I think about it or see it, I remember the one who gave it to me. He died a short time ago, Sadly, so he is constantly on my mind.
It's funny how you wear your watch, it becomes a part of you, and you don't think about it again all day. You can check it regularly to see when you are performing the procedure without even recalling it. Then one day, you neglect your watch off your wrist, and all day long, you disturb about where you left it and worried you until it comes back on your wrist. During my travels, I was at the airport in Paris, refreshed, went to the toilets, took off my watch, took a quick shower, and then left, leaving my watch behind. After a few minutes, I looked to check my flight time and not be watched. My heart sank, I ran to the restrooms, and fortunately, my watch was still in the tub - there are some honest people in the world. I had a strong sense of loss when my watch was missing for that short time. I confirmed how much the clock meant to me.
A few months later, I was not so lucky. I was on a ferry traveling from Italy to Greece. The same thing happened, I washed my hands, left the watch on the basin then went up on deck. I soon realized that I had left the watch in the toilet, but it was gone when I got back. I reported missing it, and it was broadcast over the ship's loudspeakers, but the person who took it didn't want it, and I felt naked without it on my wrist. There was a strong sense of loss. I guess we all have felt like this when something is taken away from us, something we treasure. So look after your Wrist Watches.
