mongst a certain set of individuals the notion that every gentleman of noteworthy sartorial distinction should indeed make it a characteristic prerogative to amass a refined and sophisticated horological collection of divine wristwatches that will not only smarten up and tactfully adorn his wrist (in a subtly distinguished manner) for decades to come but that will ensure he remains tastefully punctual and a beacon of enduring style and substance is beyond reproach — that all gentlemen should avail themselves of a classic timepiece (or two), if you will, that reflectively bespeaks unto his innate tastes whilst both signifying his social intent and functioning as a mark of his underlying characteristic grace.
To wit, and in spite of the omnipresent glow of smartphones — a modern day working essential — which also just so happen to conveniently keep time, the truth of the matter is that the humble wristwatch is well primed to eternally remain a highly cultivated style staple within the wardrobes of the finest sartorially-inclined modern gentleman for good reason — it is at once a practical device , a status symbol and an irreplaceable sartorial accoutrement of peerless merit.
