When did you start using your smartphone to tell time? At some point, many of us began awaking to the sound of programmed alarms and reaching into our pockets to double-check we weren’t running late. But with an analog watch, you can get the most key function of telling the time without the eye strain. These days, analog watches also have some of the key features of their technologically advanced counterparts, such as water-resistant abilities. Below are some analog watches that can fit anyone’s style.
