The invention of the wristwatch has chaged our world dramatically. What once was a piece of jewerly for women has adapted into a smartwatch that does everything a phone can. While a watch is not necessary anymore due to the invention of the smartphone, which keeps the time in your back pocket, it represents one's gender, wealth, and affluence. Watches can cost over $100,000 with no extra features, but it easily portrays one's social status. Our society can use watches as a symbol in several ways. A luxury Rolex shows one's family wealth through a heirloom, while an Apple Watch shows one's social "in-the-know" personality, and cheaper or replica watches represent one's desire to be in the upper class, but does not have the means. This website aims to explore the history of the watch, how the media portrays it, and the social implications.
