Are watches worth it.

Besides telling time, a watch is just an accessory. Psychologically, it provides the idea that as a man, you are time conscious, punctual, and values not only your time, but other people's time. Those who go for high-end and pricey watches are just demonstrating their taste and style, and their personality.

I think it is better for a man to have one, hata kama ni ya mia tano.

Watches that matter cost 250k and above, and they are bought to be family heirlooms or to mark milestones in life. Anything below that price is a wannabe. If you are just having a watch for old school's sake, you are better off with a simple Casio.

If you ever get stranded and your card is not working, then the value of that watch come to life. Legacy hotels and hotels run by families, will accept that watch as payment or hold it as collateral until your bank clears payment. Some private jet services will accept this as mode of payment.

In Latin America, it is also valuable currency that can get you around. In 2019, when US almost considered a military intervention in Venezuela, most rich guys used these assets as currency to evacuate.

So when you have some money, alternative assets are important.

Let us agree. Kuna watch mara tatu.
i) Ornamental watches. the high end luxury watches costing in the excess of 200k a piece. offers nothing besides being a chronometer.
ii) Functional watches-mostly the digital watches with multiple features, relatively cheap compared to the ornamental watches. Apple series 8 watch about 60k.
iii) The ordinary watches from the streets worn by the majority. just for keeping time and making them feel good. Ata hio ya 8k falls under this category.
Guess the same can be said of cellphones and virtually every material purchase in life. To each his own.
