A men’s watch is often seen as a status symbol. In many families, the grandfather’s watch is passed on to his son and grandson. Men’s watches often have functions such as the depth gauge of the diver’s watch or the tachymeter (stop function) of the pilot’s watch. The men’s watch is usually larger and coarser than the women’s watch.
Classification of the men’s watch category
Men’s watches are specially made for men’s wristwatches, which are usually much larger and wider in size and have a coarser design than women’s watches. If you compare them with models for women, they are more classic and masculine, in gold or silver, and rarely have filigree or playful features themselves.
Status symbol and special status as an heirloom
Men’s watches are often viewed as a status symbol, with many men attaching great importance to wearing an attractive and expensive watch. In particular, wearing a wristwatch from Rolex has been considered optimal for years. It is not uncommon for watches to be passed on from father to son within the family, whereby the special status of the men’s watch is emphasized again.
In addition to timing, men’s watches usually have other functions as well. This can include a depth gauge in a diving watch or a stop function in a pilot’s watch.
