Symbolic Meaning of Giving Watches as Gifts

One thing that I wonder is the meaning of giving watches as gifts. How I like the TAG Heuer watches men’s collection as a gift to my husband. Watch is a practical gift that can be worn daily. For me giving  a watch to my husband expresses a wonderful time that we spend together and each time he sees the time on his watch, he would always remember that time is more valuable because I am a part of his life in every minute.

In some Asian cultures, they say that giving a watch or clock is a bad luck meaning that you are running out of time. But,  I believe that the symbolic meaning of giving watch greatly depends on how the giver represents it and how the receiver values it. Time is gold as they say in a motto so I think when you receive a watch; you are a precious person in the life of those who gave it.
