Time After Time
In the age of iPhones and Androids, uninterrupted face time is becoming obsolete. The same can be said for a watch. But a watch is more than a time keeper. Buying a quality watch is a worthwhile investment because it speaks to a man’s character, style and sophistication. Wearing a watch might also help you put your phone away and focus on the person beside you.
