On the rare occasion I wear a watch hunting, it's the same G-Shock I wear for work. And I don't take my cellphone hunting, an added benefit of hunting is getting away from that darn thing. Besides, usually no cell service where I hunt anyway.
I expected this type of response, then I read to the end, it just keeps going, going and going, time flies.
This was not a debate... That's the part you still don't realize.Whence forth they change the name to AfricaTimekeeping.com I'll be certain to agree with all (by virtue of silence)! Maybe wear one on each wrist?? I have a love of hunting. A good sense of direction and the position of the sun has paid dividends for me in and out of the field. That, and the PH's watch. lol Twisting facts around like a Dem (i.e. suggesting hunting methods and equipment, that i stated something somewhere else-unsubstantiated) that was never part of my line of reasoning. Jewelry, for those who take pleasure in it. I'll do my own hunting, whether it with bow, muzzleloader, pistol or rifle! 'Nothing to do with a watch. Please mind your own skin, for it appears a bit thin...An informed opinion is a good thing. An informed opinion which irks someone, well, they might wish to face the facts, much like the Dems featured in the media. All good here. No ire raised, excepting some giggling...For I was the one that stated my opposed opinion, based upon fact, and should expect a certain fallout from those strongly attached to watches. It's ok. lol It proves my point and further I am amused! We realize we've boiled over a watch, yes? I'd hate to debate something substantive.
Just a heads up, my Sunto underwhelmed my on my last trip. Completely fogged up which is ridiculous.
Men who wear Rolex's attract women of all sorts.NOTICE to all of you ROLEX fans.
several years ago I was reviewing some police reports and came across one where a hot woman would pick-up some guy in a bar, they'd go to her room and get into some compromising situations. during the encounter accomplices would photograph and record the encounter. then the guy would be either blackmailed or a big guy would burst in and threaten the guy for being with his "wife".
What was the indicator that the woman would use to select a victim? They all were wearing Rolex watches.
We've found that the "younger" generations don't have an appreciation of many of the things that we've traditionally valued. For example, a friend, who recently passed away, attempted to sell really nice China, Crystal, dining room furniture, plus artwork, etc after her husband passed. She and her husband were both retired militarily (He was a dentist, she a nurse) and had collected valuable things throughout their overseas travels and assignments (Germany, Greece, Turkey, etc). She was only able to obtain cents on the dollar for their high value heirlooms. As a result, we're going to will our stuff to friends and relatives rather then have an estate sale. Just sayin'.Disagree. Smartwatches are a passing fad worn primarily by middle aged and older people who can't make the transition to just using their phone. Case in point, none of my uni friends have one, but my uncle, my father, loads of my mothers friends, plenty of my work colleagues all have their little apple watches and shout about how 'hip' they are.
It's like the Ipad. Young adults and teenagers don't buy them, middle aged women do, desperately thinking that they're 'down with the kids'.
For many people of my age (I'm 24), a watch is not really seen as a practical thing. You want the time, again, check your phone. A watch therefore is a statement, a fashion accessory. If you want to wear one in that context, a high end piece is highly appealing, whereas an apple watch is just a rubbish phone.
The brands with market share amongst my peers who bother with a watch at all are the 'fashion watch' brands like Fossil, Armani, Boss. I expect that as they gain more disposable income over time, that'll transition into more established watch bands like Rolex.
