When you get your first expensive watch (from an outlet such as Hayes Jewelers), whether as a gift or a purchase you made yourself, a big part of you thinks that you should only pull that watch out for special occasions or work events. However, by not wearing your watch, you are doing yourself, your wallet, and of course your fancy watch a disservice. Before you scoff and say "yeah right" as you admire your gorgeous watch nestled snugly in its box, get to know a few of the reasons why your expensive watch needs and deserves to be worn rather than tucked away in a box.

Your Watch Makes You Feel Good

You have to admit, when you do take your watch out of the box and fit it around your wrist, it feels pretty good. In fact, the watch alone can boost your confidence, self-image, and can make you feel better going into your day. 

So, why limit that good feeling to only once in a while? If a single accessory can wield that much influence on your attitude about yourself, then use it to your advantage. Confidence and self-assuredness will get you far in your personal and professional life. 

What You Wear Sends A Message

Even if you change nothing else about your attire, attitude, or demeanor when you are out and about in the world, wearing an expensive watch on a regular basis does project and send a certain message to the rest of the world. Your watch speaks for you and lets people know that you take pride in your appearance and that you have attained success in your life.

How the rest of the world perceives you is based largely on factors that you may not even realize in your daily life. And when you choose to wear your watch on a daily (or at least regular) basis, the people around you will take notice.

While you may not want to seem snobby or like you are rubbing your success in people's faces, simply wearing your watch will not do this alone. You would also have to have an attitude about it and/or bring it up needlessly in conversation. So, let the watch do the talking for you and you will project the image you want to others without any of the negative connotations.

Your Watch Was Built To Be Worn Regularly

The inner mechanics of your watch actually depend on regular use and wear. When it sits in the box, shut off, and gathering dust, the inner mechanical parts can lose lubrication and soft surfaces inside can harden and crack.

When this happens, you will be highly disappointed when you pull your watch out for the next big event in your life. Watch repairs for total mechanical failure will not only be expensive, but time-consuming. And, of course, such repairs are easily avoidable if you just wear your watch regularly. 

When it comes to your expensive watch, you may try to avoid wearing it to avoid damage and repairs. However, this is a mistake. In fact, instead of regular routine repairs, you may be looking at extensive repairs of catastrophic internal damage. 

There are a myriad of reasons that you should wear your high-quality watch on a regular basis. So, keep this in mind and do not tuck your beautiful watch away in a box until a special occasion arises. Instead, wear it regularly and wear it proudly.
