The first time I went shopping for a sports watch, I wasn’t sure what to look for. At the time, I was wearing a collection of cheap, leather wrist watches. These seemed okay, but they were never properly maintained. Every now and then, the leather would start coming apart from the inside, so I tossed them out and bought the more expensive Sport Watches that I’ve had my eye on for a while now.
Now I can’t wear my Sport Watches. They are getting very scratched up and it’s becoming really difficult to find any dust or other debris that won’t wear away at the leather. And it will probably never be found.
Although this may seem like the case for most of us today, the current state of modern technology has made it much easier for us to maintain our watches. The techniques and tools available today will keep our watches looking great longer than I ever could have imagined. But it’s still a chore to carry around our old sports watches.
My friend’s leather wrist watch got really faded. It wasn’t that he didn’t care, but he just couldn’t live without his watch. I guess he hadn’t realized how long you could get scratches on your watch. When he had to go somewhere that would take it off his wrist, the scratches started getting larger.
I didn’t really think about it, but I was actually pretty upset about it. I don’t need to remove my watch every night to put it in my pocket. Instead, I can simply slip it into my pocket and let it dangle there. However, if I needed to use my watch, I could only do so when I had something on my wrist to hold it.
My watch also wouldn’t stay on my wrist as long. I’ve never really minded it; in fact, I used to wear my Sport Watches quite a bit. That’s when I realized how important it was for my wrists to stay clean. Without a clean and maintained watch, my wrists would be more likely to hurt and ache.
The same applies to my Sport Watches. I try to check my watch every couple of hours. If I notice something’s wrong, like it’s really dark outside, I’ll remove it, clean it and return it to my wrist. It really is worth it because I’m not really aware that I’m cleaning the watch as part of the maintenance.
Today, I’m in the process of buying my second Sport Watches. I’m excited to be able to wear it under the sunglasses, since the sunlight makes my first Sport Watch so weak. I also think it will make me a better person, because I’ll realize how long I have to spend taking care of my watch, if I get another one.
