What Time is It?

Before you tell me the time, take a closer look at your watch; now tell me what you see. The answer is not really the time, but the metal your timepiece is made of-Stainless Steel. Since its discovery, stainless steel has been experimented on and used in many different ways. Although most are fairly obvious, some can still surprise us, in this case with our timepieces.

Timepieces have been around since the 16th century, with steel playing an important role with the assembly and inner-workings of a watch. It was not until the discovery of stainless steel in the early 1900’s that watches would take a new step into reliability and functionality. Previous to stainless steel, a watch was a very meticulous part of one’s attire, due to its prone to stain, chip, and wear and tear timepieces were but for the elite, the aristocrats and rarely for the common man. As the evolution of watches took its place in history, different types of metals began to take part in its design and usage. It was not until stainless steel was introduced that led to a dramatic change in what we wear today.

The introduction of stainless steel towards watches led to many more individuals having the availability to wear them, the reason why is its versatility. Stainless steel clasps, and links turned skeptical watch users into admirers and aficionados. The use of stainless steel helped those who suffered from allergic reactions to: leather, rubber and other metals, fear no more. Not only was it healthy for its user, but due to its removable clasps, more and more users would be able to wear a timepiece of their choosing. Stainless steel brought to the table an odorless, stainless, multipurpose, aesthetically pleasing factor to our now every day time piece.
