Today we live in an era that is dominated by a demand for smart technology and the latest gadgets or gismo’s. The way the younger generation look at time management has evolved, taking a more modernised approach as now they are looking to use their watches as a phone or even a fitness tracker. As a consequence of this change however, it has unpredictably had a beneficial effect on the appreciation for genuine, more traditional men’s watches.
Now, watchmakers are going head to head with the likes of Apple, working to highlight the beauty of true craftsmanship, apposed to electronics and technology.
