Modern society is built upon two pillars—time, and technology. You’d be hard-pressed to be successful today without either. But technology can be deceiving. Smartphones were sold to us as a tool to give us freedom, but how many times have you not taken the plunge headfirst into adventure because you’re afraid your phone will get wet? How many times did you resist getting off-the-grid because it would die? I wear a Farr + Swit Seaplane Automatic because half the timemy life often takes me places that a smartphone can’t survive—and the other half I’m just trying to escape the leash that is modern society.
