Some Things Are Better Left Analog

Lately, I have begun a movement I am dubbing "detechnologification." In my mind, some things are simply better analog. Technology is wonderful, but not everything needs to be technological.

With the new Apple Watch launching soon, a new era of wearable tech is being ushered in before our eyes. As for me? Well, I'm very interested in the concept but my daily routine conflicts too much to wear a watch. I type all day, and a watch would get in the way of resting my wrists on the body of my Macbook Pro; seems silly, but trust me on this one. However, I didn't cut watches out of my life completely.

Luminox Atacama Field Day 1925 Watch

In fact, I recently purchased the Luminox Atacama Field Day (pictured) watch earlier this year, and absolutely love it. The purchase got me thinking about how technology has invaded every segment of my life, and how something as simple as an analog watch does exactly what I need it to.

No matter what time of day that I look at the watch; no matter the lighting or weather, my Luminox can easily tell me the time. I don't have to move my wrist up and down for a digital screen to come on, and I don't have to worry about charging it. In fact, the Luminox uses a mixture of silica and boric oxide to create tiny borosilicate glass tubes, and fills those tubes with Tritium gas that glows for roughly 20 years. Luminox watches are deceptively technologically advanced. However, that technology isn't in your face, bugging you with notification after notification; it's used appropriately to make the product better.

So, I suppose I am not entirely giving up technology, simply refining it. I can't give up, of course, or else I wouldn't be able to design your website. However, my new little movement of detechnologification is going well. I encourage you to join me.

Thank you for reading.
