Watches are a fashion accessory and actually dates back to the late fifteenth century, when pocket watches were invented. That's actually what that small pocket on your jeans is for. People used to carry around portable watches called pocket watches to tell the time. Most of these were very elaborate, but some were very simple. It wasn't until 1868 that the first wristwatch appeared. Now things have evolved to a point where wristwatches are now considered a piece of jewelry everyone has.
Wristwatches come in all different colors, sizes and styles. Some are fancy and some are not. Some are made entirely of a precious metal like gold or silver. There are still others that you can pick up from Wal-Mart for ten bucks and some change. Still, there are others that are sold in a jewelry shop that have diamonds in the clock work and are very expensive. Other options are there as well. On some watches, you can change the wristband to any color you want.
Sometimes you can change your wristband style or color. There are some wristbands that are made of plastic, like in the case of kids, or leather, or fabric. There are lots to choose from, since not everyone likes the same thing. Everyone doesn't have to like the same thing. There are also expandable wrist watchbands and even waterproof ones. There are sports watches and wristbands to choose from.
You can still go online or to a jewelry store and see if they have any pocket watches for sale if you want to. They probably would be online or at an antique shop though. They don't have much call for pocket watches. There are lots of options to choose from though.
