The watch has a timeless story to tell. The history of watches dates back to the ancient times. Watches evolved from portable spring driven clocks, which first appeared in the 15th century. The first timepieces to be worn, made in 16th century Europe, were transitional in size between clocks and watches. Styles changed in the 1600s and men began to wear watches in pockets. To fit in pockets, their shape evolved into the typical pocket watch shape, rounded and flattened with no sharp edges. Before World War I only women wore wristwatches, they were considered ‘unmanly’. Wristwatches became fashionable as a result of their use by soldiers, who needed access to their watches while their hands were full. These first wristwatches, called ‘trench watches’, were made with pocket watch movements. The first successful self-winding system was invented by John Harwood in 1923. From then onwards, watches have gone through constant renovation and stylizing. Today we have watches that are not just timepiece but an ornament worth tying on the wrist.
