Think about it- in the 1800's, people pulled pocket watches out of their pockets, flipped them open, and saw what time it was. In WWI, the British Army came up with the brilliant idea of putting watches on the wrist, so soldiers could instantly tell the time. Now, almost a century later- do you ever see anyone wearing a watch anymore? No! We all pull our phones out of our pockets, and flip them open when we want to know what time it is! Full circle!
The moral of the story is, fashion + technology = ridiculousness.
