Traditional watches matter more in the digital age than you think


A smartwatch may run circles around its analog counterpart with all of the interactive features it provides, but traditional watches still have a place in the world.

Did you know it is a myth that millennials are skipping out on traditional watches in favor of smartwatches? According to a 2019 Business Insider article, luxury watch sales are at stable numbers because millennials are focused on goods with artisanal craftsmanship of goods using mechanized technology over digital alternatives.

Further, wearing a watch can mean the difference between getting a job and getting passed over. A 2017 study done by the Lancaster University found wristwatch wearers are perceived as more mindful and punctual over non-watch wearers in job interviews.

At Linn and Owen, we stock our own private label wristwatches, assembled here in the U.S. for nearly 70 years using fine Swiss components. We also carry solar-powered Citizen Eco-Drive watches offered in traditional, radio control and satellite reception. Custom order watches are available as well.

The simplicity of an analog watch is convenient, comfortable, classic and smart.
