10 Reasons EVERYONE Should Own A Watch - Why It's Better Than A Cell Phone To Tell Time & Collect

In today's video I respond to a comment left on a recent video. A viewer made an excellent point "if cell phones have such accurate time, then what is the point of owning or buying a watch?" So in this video I share my 10 reasons why everyone should consider getting a watch. I directly compare each reason with the use of cell phones and explain why I am extremely optimistic about the future of watches and the hobby of collecting them . My ten reasons are as follows: 1. The link to the history of Horology and civilisation. 2. The importance of measuring time and how it unites us all. 3. The refinement in understanding and learning about horology. 4. The culture, hobby and community of collecting watches. 5. The tradition of owning, inheriting and passing down a timepiece. 6. The dependable practicality and functionality of a trusted technology. 7. The investment potential of buying the right watches. 8. The enhancement of ones personal style and complimenting and outfit. 9. A great way to start a conversation and meet people. 10. Marking special occasions, events and associated memories withe watches.
