Is it still worth investing in a quality watch, even if everyone uses a cell phone or computer to check the time? I think that watches are still a status symbol. Fashion magazines recommend buying special accessories and the watch is one of them. A gold watch, in addition to being a pleasure to wear, is also a lasting investment. If you are thinking of buying a watch, think that you will wear it for a long time and then first of all look for something you really love. Other considerations: look for a 18 KT gold watch that fits well with all lifestyles.
