There is always a novelty in getting to use a particular technology or an application that is quite out of the ordinary for most times. The issue of wooden watches is in this genre of goods that can truly be classified as pure luxury. The best men’s wooden watches are more exclusive than even the most selective of Swiss time pieces as well. Thus it is a good way of proving to be exclusive in nature as well as in use.
When the best men’s wooden watches keep time
The most fundamental and basic function of a watch is to keep time and the more accurate it is the better the performance is considered to be. Rarely is accuracy of performance a substitute for any other factor when a wristwatch or for that matter any time piece is taken into consideration. Even with the wooden time pieces, the need to keep time to perfection is never missed even for a moment.
The modern man is often characterized by the ability to divide the day into various parts as morning, afternoon and evening. Each functional part of the different parts of a day is relevant to a certain activity ranging from work to leisure and finally sleeps. It is the importance of time that separates these parts that make the time piece or the watch all the more important.
In the very initial days of keeping time the non availability of affordable time pieces did have its toll on how people took to the concept of timekeeping. There were hilarious instances of goof ups that resulted in difference that different people kept time. The ability to standardize time and time zones is in a good part to the advent of affordable and reliable time pieces.
Thus wooden men’s watches other than being a novelty must be able to keep time to a reasonably reliant manner. It is then that the piece can be labeled as utilitarian. Whatever may be the reason that a user of a wooden watch might have, it must in the very final reckoning keep reliable time.
Where novelty meets utility
No doubt the nature of a wooden watch often makes it costly as it cannot be given the advantages of mass production. Thus the scales of operation are so lopsided to ensure that a wooden watch remains a novelty than a product of mass consumption. Thus the owners of a wooden watch would be quite unaffected as to whether it keeps perfect time than if it did keep time at all.
Thus the functionality is sacrificed to a large extent to provide a time piece that is often something that needs to be marveled at rather than be relied on to keep perfect time. All this adds up a phenomenon where society places a greater importance and stress on show pieces at some point and it is the realization that they remain as show pieces and not as an object of everyday use that is key.
