Men need an analog timepiece more than ever

September 23, 2014

I love Apple and technology, but I also love fashion. God, I love a nice watch. This article at GQ summarizes accurately why I probably won’t be buying an Apple Watch.

Proper watches have an emotional significance that few other objects a man owns do. They should be timeless, to a certain extent. The Apple Watch is more of a tool, a very fancy tool, but not unlike the Suunto I have that pairs with a heart rate band. Offhand, I don’t know which model it is because I choose not to remember. Who cares? Those watches are easily replaceable, so replaceable that new and improved models are released every few months.
