Watches in Nigeria


Brief history

Do you know that wristwatches aren’t meant for men in the early years? Yes, they are almost exclusively worn by women while men make use of pocket watches.

They were said to have been created by Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1812, which he made for the Queen of Naples. But it was later noted in some narrations that the Queen of England is the first to have a wristwatch-tagged arm watch in the 1570s.

However, the timepieces were made for women only, but the military men adopted them during the first world war to keep a check on time. As time went by, they became a requirement in the military. Later, other men started getting them until they became that essential part of everyone’s clothing, and they love to wear and use them.

Features to look out for

Watches are worth going for, and that is because they keep abreast of the time and compliment your dressing. However, if you want one for yourself, these are the basic features you should look out for;

  • Go for a mechanical wristwatch rather than quartz. Mechanical types are automatic, and they don’t use batteries, while quartz uses a battery that isn’t very durable. Although mechanical brands are expensive at the same time, they stand the test of time. If you wonder where you can get one, log on to Jiji to check out the available options in-store.
