TGIF: Gen Z is reviving the watch market

 According to a recent article in the Robb Report, Gen Zers Are Spending Like Maniacs on Watches.  I'm not sure how. I guess when Bitcoin investments, Influencer Channel Income, and a half-dozen side hustles come together, it can be a wonderful thing.  All I can say is great for Gen Z!

If you belong to this prosperous part of Gen Z, welcome to The Watch Dude Blog. Perhaps, I can suggest a nice watch with an unusual square shape?  It's the Cartier Santos.  It features an automatic movement, 100 meters of water resistance, and a silvertone case and bezel. I think you'll like it.

If you are looking for an unusual feature.  This watch has a blue cabachoon crown.  I think that is probably actually cabachon--a blue apatite stone.  It's the kind of feature that makes this watch unique and luxurious.

For most readers, an exquisite watch like the Cartier Santos is most likely out of reach.  But, we can gawk and gaze and drool at this fine Cartier watch over on Amazon.  If you do get this watch, let us know in the comments.  We'll want to live vicariously through you!

An alternative watch that offers luxury at a less stratospheric price point is the Bulova Men's Sutton Automatic Watch.  It's powered by a 21 Jewel Miyota movement and offers a peak into the beating heart of the movement.

 Regardless of watch price, it's great to see that Gen Z is keeping interest in mechanical watches alive!
