Do you actually wear a watch to tell time?
It seems like fewer and fewer people are wearing watches to tell time these days, with maybe the exception of an Apple Watch.
Just look around when you’re out and about and you’ll see people glued to their phones for just about everything, including telling time and staying on schedule. And since I’m assuming you’re like ‘most people,’ I’m going go out on a limb and assume that you don’t wear a watch to tell time, either.
(Quick Aside: Am also I correct in guessing that if your phone is about to die, you’ll ask someone else with a phone what time it is?)
If you don’t wear a watch to tell time, then why DO you wear a watch or why WOULD you wear a watch? Its simple: Because a watch makes a statement. A watch says something about who you are and what you are about…
While watches were originally invented to tell time, very quickly they became much more than that. They became heirlooms, cherished possessions, and more about your personality and who you are as an individual.
Case in point: According to an article (do you have a link?) by “Psychology Today,” our brains are hardwired to engage our hands in communication and emotion.
So, wait... If you use your hands to engage with others on different levels AND your watch is on your wrist near your hand, then don’t you think your watch can say a lot about you?
Think about it: If you shake someone’s hand and you see a nice watch—especially a nice Woodgrain Watch—what does that tell you? Wood signifies strength and stability. Wouldn't you think that, by wearing a Woodgrain Watch, that person’s persona and ‘ways of being’ would embody strength and stability? Of course you would…
Again, your watch gives others a glimpse of your personality. It shows how much (or how little) you think about style. It will let people know if you go with flow or against the grain.
How do you want people to see you? Do you want people to think you’re open-minded and willing to try new things, OR do you want to be seen as someone who’s resigned to playing it safe?
I mean, let’s be honest… If you aren’t willing to express your true aspirations via something as little and seemingly insignificant as a Woodgrain watch, where else are you holding yourself back?
As you think about your answers to these questions, ask yourself another one: “What is normal, anyway? And do you want to BE normal?”
Look, don’t be afraid to be yourself. Take pride in doing your own thing.
Because there is happiness in being different!
You know deep down you’re different already. How boring would life be if you were the same as everyone else? You need to embrace your differences. Being different works. And here at Woodgrain Watches we know that as much as anyone:
That’s what our watches say about us.
And that’s what our watches can say about you.
