There is a need for watches for those of us who don't live life tethered to our phones and technology.

I have one nice watch and one wear anywhere crappy watch, and hubby has 3 nice watches. One is a leather banded shock resistant style, the other is stainless steel and is a bit nicer, and his last watch is a white gold pocketwatch from his grandfather that he wears when he dresses very nicely.

I am apparently the only person on the planet who doesn't carry a phone in my pocket, and, accordingly, doesn't stand around in random public places checking e-mail or texting. It's just not me. My technology of choice is a laptop, and I don't really have any desire to carry my tech around with me throughout my day.

But I also don't wear a watch. Apart from my rings, jewelry isn't very "me," either. But if I had to choose, I'd rather wear a watch than carry a phone around.
