Why wear a watch these days when you can check the time on your cellphone? Tennis champion Maria Sharapova, an ambassador for Tag Heuer timepieces and a lady with a jam-packed schedule, gave the best answer I have ever heard to this question. “It is so much easier for me to wear a watch than to go digging through my bag to find my cellphone.” Brilliantly spoken. Who hasn’t had to stir around in their purse to locate their phone at a meeting or business lunch? Clearly, it is much more elegant to take a glance at a beautiful watch on your wrist. Not to mention the fact that it adds a spectacular element to any outfit.
