Men would rather wear a skirt than a wristwatch, but after World War I that changed. The wrist watch has become a symbol of courage, courage and sexual status for men around the world.
After the First World War, a whole generation of battle-hardened veterans came home with watches in hand, although before that men did not wear the accessory at all. Men wore watches in their pockets, and only women wore watches. Before the war, this watch was primarily regarded as a feminine fashion accessory due to its slim and graceful design.
During World War I, the military was forced to be more practical. It was difficult to pull the watch out of the pocket. Pilots, soldiers, cavalrymen and officers wore a watch on one hand and a compass on a friend. Wristwatches were often called trench watches. The ministries of war even bought watches for their officers and soldiers.
Returning from the war, the veterans retained a similar military habit of wearing watches. It was a symbol of courage, courage and respect. Men were good and even bragged a little that they had proven their masculine value in battles.
There was even such an interesting case. After the end of the First World War, a lawyer led the process in court. The judge noticed that the lawyer had a wristwatch. The judge stopped the lawyer in mid-sentence and asked him if he had served in the war. When the lawyer replied that he was not there, the judge ordered him to remove the watch, convincing him that it was inappropriate for non-veterans to wear a wristwatch. A wrist watch is a kind of a sign of courage that had to be earned.
Men would rather wear a skirt than a wristwatch, but after World War I that changed. The wrist watch has become a symbol of courage, courage and sexual status for men all over the world. Gradually, not only former military men, but also other men began to wear on their hands.
Veterans who came from the First World War changed men's fashion forever.
In 1930, sales of wristwatches exceeded those of pocket watches. Today all men wear wristwatches. They are a status symbol for men.
