Timepieces Go From Chains To Wrists Over Time

Aug 4, 2008
Have you ever heard the old song 'Time On My Hands' by Vincent Youmans, Mack Gordon and Harold Adamson? It was written in 1930, when men's watches were relegated to pocket watches.

Had they been alive and writing the song today, it certainly would have been called 'Time On My Wrist' instead. Today, men's wristwatches are extremely popular. Indeed, they are the most popular category of men's jewelry on the market.

A Look at Today's Luxury Watches

Modern men's watches are far more robust and resilient than the highest-quality pocket watches of the early 20th century. But as durable as they are, they also have a sleek artisanship that is hard to match. Its beauty earns it the title of men's jewelry. Gold watches used to be a choice gift for loyal employees to a company after forty years, and diamond watches for men remains an ever-popular anniversary gift.

Currently, the names of Citizen and Movado have come to define men's jewelry and wristwatches. These two companies are trend setters and forerunners on the wristwatch front.

Citizen, founded in 1918, was originally called the Shoshoka Watch Institute of Japan. Its name did not change until 1930. It is known for its high-quality dive watches and some of the most decadent and beautiful luxury watches on the market.

Headquartered in Switzerland, Movado is a company that truly lives up to the term runs like a Swiss watch. Their coveted designer watches are regarded to be the most accurate in popular timepieces worldwide and their dependability is second to none. They understated design of a Movado men's watch is highly distinctive and highly prized. In fact, those wishing to buy a Movado watch will indeed have a difficult time choosing among the gold and diamond watches offered, because Movado produces over 100 different models of luxury watches!

Whenever you're looking for a quality men's gift but just don't know what to get, consider men's watches. They are appreciated and well-received at graduations, bar mitzvahs, anniversaries and birthdays, and congratulations.

Like other items of jewelry we have, watches are one of the items were just can't have too much. Watches go well in a variety of situations and events, so it's always better to be safe then sorry when styling for a certain occasion.

They also make great gifts for members of a wedding party. Whatever the occasion, a sleek and rugged men's watch is always a welcome gift, because there isn't anything more precious then our time, so why not keep track of it in style.
