Canadians: Don't give up on watches this holiday season
Long, long ago in the days before iPods and laptops, watches were seen as the ultimate accessory. Men carried pocket watches as a sign of status, while women wore dainty wristwatches like jewelry.
This holiday season, why not bring Canada back into the analog age and give the gift of a pretty or funky watch? Here are a few ideas to get you started.
According to Wired magazine, because cell phones often display the time, many people see no need to wear a humble watch. Instead of creating watches for the wrist, designers have become creative, and present clip-on digital watches made by Tokyo Flash.
For the earth-conscious loved one in your life, consider an environmentally friendly watch. Taintedgreen.com suggests the Seiko kinetic watch which is powered by your own movements that then turn internal weights and keep everything moving smoothly.
Finally, BCBusinessonline.ca gives great advice for the high-flying career executive in your life - get him or her a classic, leather or shiny silver wristwatch. Particularly for men, the news provider explains, watches can still be a form of jewelry or adornment and suggests you consider high-end items like the Stella Maris from the Vancouver-based St. Moritz Watch Corp.
