Watches in the modern era are curious things, if only because they seem obsolete against smartphones that can determine the hour in any time zone. To wear a watch, these days, is not only to tell time. It is, perhaps, a symbol of timelessness — one in which an heirloom speaks of a family’s history, or a newer piece ticks closer to the future. When a simple watch is given such a great task, it is necessary to wear one that can withstand the elements: waterproof, water resistant or simply too precious to take off. Every watch may have a different face, but as the saying goes, its hands tell a tale as old as time. —Margarita Buenaventura
