The best rated watch brands

Watch brands
The use of watches started at the beginning of the 19th century. The watch brands began to work at Swiss manufacturing plants and they made the first wristwatches for female audience.For men’s world, the trend was set on pocket watches. And that’s why even today men’s shirts  still have a pocket on the left side at chest height.

The equal preference for watches from both genders began to settle during the I World War. Commanders started to expand its use due to the comfort that supposed just the simply gesture of looking at the wrist.

Nowadays, those times are far behind. Watches have been adding features beyond telling the time. These include working as a fashion and luxury complement. And watch brands know it.

If we think about it, it is more than likely that each of us has more than a watch in our stock. We use some of them for our daily routine, others only for practicing sport, others for a special event and others for significant dates.

Over the past 10 years the average expenditure is three times higher than before. And on average, each person has at least 3 watches. Watch brands are actually selling personal branding. They give us their style and they lend us the values with which we are going to be indentified when someone sees our watch. Besides, they describe us with just looking at our wrist.
