Anyone interested in wrist watches will instantly recognize any of the major luxury watch brands from across the room.
The majority of these titans had their origins in solving very real problems of their day, and they were practical instruments that made significant contributions to the advancement of technology in various sectors.
The work of these watchmaking pioneers was put to the test during World War I and World War II, where the precision of your watch meant the difference between life and death.
We’ve gone a long way since then, and we no longer rely only on these primitive instruments alone to communicate, gauge distance, and so on. We now have GPS devices on our phones and sophisticated measuring and communication devices. Our lives, however, will never be free of the necessity to precisely tell time, which is the main function of a wristwatch.
Technology advancements have reduced the cost of producing a watch while improving accuracy, making a wristwatch inexpensive and accessible to nearly everyone.
In reality, you no longer need a wristwatch because your phone now tells the time, yet demand for luxury timepieces is increasing and shows no signs of slowing down.
Watches do so much more than just tell time. The close bond we have with our timepieces, and in particular, the memories and tales they evoke as they travel with us through life, contributes to their allure.
The tagline “Begin Your Own Tradition,” which is one of Patek Phillipps’ many memorable marketing slogans, captures the affinity that may develop with a watch.
In addition to regulating our lives, watches, especially wristwatches, may convey messages about who we are and how we want to be received.

According to him, it was all about perception.
