Watches are a necessary item, not only a fashion accessory.
They can be elaborate or simple, clock faced or digital, hang round the neck or be on the arm, be intricate in working or simple in function, have additional features or just function in telling the time.
We are grateful to not have to rely on the position of the sun to tell the time but with all the watches on the market these days, the choice is endless.
With modern technology smart watches have evolved to measure heart rate, to be a GPS on the hand, to receive messages, to send emails.
From the simple requirement of telling the time, watches can be a sophisticated technical aid at hand, on the arm, reachable at all times!
