The guys at One Flare say that watches are obsolete now. They claim that there is no longer any use for watches because we could tell the time from cell phones and other devices that we carry. These devices can tell the time of the day more accurately than any watch can. They say that the only reason that some people are still using watches is because they don’t to let go of what they were used to.
While that might be true, it does not mean that watches would be going out of style any time soon. They will be here to stay. They are excellent pieces of accessories and for some people they are the only jewellery that they will ever wear.
Watches for Different Types of People
There are watches for different types of people and activities. If you like the outdoors then there are especially made watches for those activities. If you want fine watches that are made for luxury, then there are brands that cater to that kind of need. There is sure to be a watch that can match your sense of style and taste.
Taking Care of Your Watch
Like any other device you need to care for your watch and make sure that it is properly cleaned and maintained. When cleaning your watch you should have the bracelet removed. If that is not possible however then you should just see to it that the watch itself does not get wet. If your watch has a leather strap to it then you can use a solution made from water and vinegar in order to get it cleaned.
The problem with leather straps is that no matter how much you clean you will really have to replace it regularly.
Removing a Link from a Watch
Sometimes you might get a watch that is actually too big for you. What you can do then is to remove a few links in the bracelet to make it fit your wrist. Here are some steps on how you can do that:
- You have to try on the watch and see how loose it is. You can then decide on the number of links to be removed.
- Most watches would be connected by bars that can be removed though holes on the side.
- Pick the link that has to be removed and using a small pin or anything similar the bar out in order to remove the link.
- Reconnect the remaining links and then try out the watch.
That’s the simple and easy process of removing a watch link.
