The passage of time has many a change in the design, style, and size of timepieces for men. From the hypnotic pendulums to the classy pocket watches, the design of these timepieces kept improvising over the centuries to gain widespread ownership. Initially, the possession of only the affluent and aristocracy, watch companies harnessed the control and started manufacturing affordable watches that could be worn on the wrist.
Mass production of watches-the journey so far
The mass production of watches started in the 19th century in the Massachusetts and Connecticut area of the U.S. Affordable tools and cheaper materials were discovered so that the pocket watch could be manufactured on a mass scale. While the women wore arm watches, the pocket watch was used by the men. And slowly, the pocket watch winding mechanism was converted from key to key less winding. This paved the way for the creation of the much coveted- the present day wrist watch.
Initially, the watch was used by soldiers in the war. First came the mechanical, then the electrical, and finally the quartz watch; the wristwatch had an adventurous journey to reach its present-day form. The trends and changes which the present day watch has gone through is a true reflection of the inventions and advancements in technology over time.
