Watches Falling into Oblivion?
In fact, the synchronization obsession gained grounds in the railroad era, when people kept their watches in a pocket. By World War I, watches gradually moved to the wrist, as wearing a wristwatches turned out to be much more comfortable. Still, as a contradiction to everything mentioned above, the horology world witnesses the appearance of more and more new watch brands, while old well-established brands attract whole armies of fans and collectors. It is obvious watch companies are not going to fall into oblivion and as a proof their creations become more and more aesthetically appealing and functionally improved.No wonder such watch-wearers have a habit of taking a watch off unconsciously and leaving it somewhere. It may be compared to a child taking off one's socks because they seem constraining. Unfortunately, for some people a watch has become a symbol of stress. That is why taking off their watch means the end of stressful commitments during the day, and moving into a relaxing realm where the time is not so important. However, scientists say it is not the time itself that's the problem. Today we live in the world where synchronization is all important, especially if to take into account the age of globalization. To get rid of stress it is necessary to 'leave' this world of total synchronization.
