You thought you had more time. Time to finish that work project, time to plan that vacation, time to call your parents.
But the seconds keep ticking, the hours keep slipping, and the years, well they just sprint by. Before you know it, you’ll be turning around and your little ones won’t be so little anymore. They’ll be asking for phones and making their own plans, dreaming their own dreams that don’t involve you.
So maybe it’s time to start teaching them about time. Give them a watch, show them how the hands go around and help them understand how fleeting each moment is and how precious.
Sure they’ll lose a few watches, forget to wind them, and get distracted by something shinier. But someday they’ll get it. They’ll understand that time is the one thing they can’t get back. And more importantly, that the time they have with you is a gift.
So this Children’s Day, consider giving the gift of time. A watch to help them keep time, and your time to help make the moments matter. The clock is always ticking, the question is will you make the time?
Children’s Day Special Watches To Explore The Child Within You
The time has come, so to speak, to get your kid a watch.
Sure, they’ve got smartphones and tablets telling them the time, but an actual watch is a rite of passage. Kids watches come in all sorts of fun, whimsical designs these days to delight your little timekeeper.
Educational watches are all the rage, using colors and numbers to help kids grasp the abstract concepts of hours, minutes and seconds. Some even have apps to gamify the learning process. Once they’ve mastered the basics, you can move on to cooler watches to match their burgeoning sense of style. Brands like Swatch, Fossil and Titan all offer affordable, stylish watches for kids with their favorite characters or in trendy colors and patterns.
Before you know it, your kid will be waking themselves up for school and whizzing through their homework with a beeping reminder of how many minutes are left. While bittersweet, giving your child more independence and responsibility is rewarding. A watch is a small but symbolic step towards that end. Tick tock, time marches on.
Oris x Pro-Pilot Kermit Edition
Kids these days, am I right? Always glued to their screens, never appreciating the simple pleasures in life. Like wearing a watch. Back in the day, getting your first watch was a rite of passage. It meant you were responsible enough to be on time for dinner or get yourself to school. Now, children have no sense of timekeeping beyond their phone’s clock.
The new Oris x Pro-Pilot Kermit Edition watch is just the ticket to getting little Johnny or Jenny interested in timepieces. Its titanium case and bracelet scream luxury, while Kermit’s goofy face popping up in the date window once a month is sure to delight. Most kids love the Muppets, so this collaboration is genius.
Wind them up with tales of how you had to be punctual or face the wrath of your parents. Watches are nostalgic, practical, and just plain fun. Kids will be begging to know the time, setting alarms and timers for everything. You’ll have helped spawn a new generation of horology enthusiasts.

Fossil x Mickey Mouse
So your little tick-tocker wants to start telling time, eh? Better bust out the piggy bank, because the Fossil × Mickey Mouse 2023 collaboration is going to set you back a pretty penny. This limited-edition Sketch Mickey Mouse Watch will have the kiddos fighting over who gets to wear it to school. With a gunmetal case and Japanese automatic movement, this vintage-inspired timepiece is a throwback to simpler days. Yet its three-link bracelet and whimsical Mickey sketch face are playful enough for a child.
Let your mini-me channel their inner Mouseketeer and give them a chance to explore the nostalgic child within you.
Welcome to the wonderful world of ‘Why?’ on loop. While most kids show an interest in learning around ages 5 to 7, some precocious tots may start pestering you earlier.
Give in to their demands, you say? Hold your horses, that’s a big mistake. Start too soon and you’ll end up with a mini clock-watcher constantly nagging you about being late to playdates. Procrastinate too long and they’ll never catch up to their time-telling peers.
When your kid’s curiosity seems unquenchable, that’s your cue. Whip out a fun watch like Titan’s Zoop, with cartoon characters and bright colors to capture their imagination. Teach them ‘o’clock’ and ‘half past’ to start, using the minute hand as a guide. Most of all, be patient through the barrage of never-ending questions. Their curiosity means they’re learning, so take a deep breath and keep calm.
Before you know it, you’ll have a mini-horologist on your hands, waking you at 6:30 on the dot for Saturday morning cartoons. You’ve been warned!
