The duo of billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola and Daddy Freeze have varying opinions about wristwatches.

While Otedola holds the opinion of technology ending the need for archaic wristwatches, Daddy Freeze disagrees.

Explaining why he no longer wears wristwatches, Otedola said that he stopped wearing them three years ago.

He wrote:

“I started wearing a wristwatch when I was 12 years old and I stopped 3 years ago. Technology has ended our necessity for the archaic wristwatch. less is more

Reacting to Otedola, Daddy Freeze who is a known lover of wristwatches, stated that while many see a wristwatch as a mere timepiece that tells what time it is, a handful of people appreciate it as the horological genius that goes into haute horlogerie.

Uncle Femi, I no gree this one o…. lol…

In my humble opinion, I think it all boils down to choice.

While many see a wristwatch as a mere timepiece that tells you what time it is, a few of us appreciate the horological genius that goes into haute horlogerie.

The focus of high end watchmaking leans largely on the complexity of the movement, combined with a proficiency for demonstrating the mastery of watchmaking arts.

In that vein, a Patek Phillipe, Piaget, Richard Mille or Audemars Piguet tourbillon for instance, is a masterpiece of artwork, sheer mechanical erudition and exceptional material craftsmanship; the horological equivalent of a Picasso on your wrist.

I wouldn’t buy Vincent Van Gogh or Paul Cezanne paintings for my wall, but that won’t stop me from appreciating the work that went into creating them, even if the painting techniques and materials are today considered old fashioned.

That asides my Egbon, that your office is awesome and we all love you on social media as you are an inspiration to many. ~FRZ
