Here at AsiaOne’s Digital Culture department, you’d think that we’re all about the digitisation of every possible thing under the sun. But not everything has to be AI-equipped, 5G-connected, or internet-enabled. Honestly, a voice-activated kitchen faucet is a little overkill, no?
The march of technology, however, has been quite apparent in the realm of timepieces — smartwatches have effectively overtaken the sales of Swiss watches for years now. Thing is, not everyone wants to have a little vibrating computer strapped to their wrist reminding them that they could use a little jogging this week. Sometimes, all we need is to just an actual watch that actually tells time without being connected to apps, and with hands instead of a screen.
With that in mind, what can you slap around your wrist? Maybe you’d like something that’s a step up from cheap Casios and Timexes; maybe Patek Phillipes and Rolexes are way beyond your wallet’s reach.
