The concept of the wristwatch goes back to the production of the very earliest watches in the 16th century. Elizabeth I of England received a wristwatch from Robert Dudley
in 1571, described as an armed watch. The oldest surviving wristwatch
(then described as a bracelet watch) is one made in 1806 and given to Joséphine de Beauharnais.[11]
From the beginning, wristwatches were almost exclusively worn by women,
while men used pocket watches up until the early 20th century.[12]Wristwatches were first worn by military men towards the end of
the 19th century, when the importance of synchronizing maneuvers during
war, without potentially revealing the plan to the enemy through
signaling, was increasingly recognized. The Garstin Company of London patented a "Watch Wristlet" design in 1893, but they were probably producing similar designs from the 1880s. Officers in the British Army began using wristwatches during colonial military campaigns in the 1880s, such as during the Anglo-Burma War of 1885.[12] During the First Boer War,
the importance of coordinating troop movements and synchronizing
attacks against the highly mobile Boer insurgents became paramount, and
the use of wristwatches subsequently became widespread among the officer
class. The company Mappin & Webb began production of their successful "campaign watch" for soldiers during the campaign at Sudan in 1898 and accelerated production for the Second Boer War a few years later.[12] In continental Europe Girard-Perregaux and other Swiss watchmakers began supplying German naval officers with wristwatches in about 1880.[11]Early models were essentially standard pocket-watches fitted to a
leather strap but, by the early 20th century, manufacturers began
producing purpose-built wristwatches. The Swiss company Dimier Frères
& Cie patented a wristwatch design with the now standard wire lugs
in 1903. Hans Wilsdorf
moved to London in 1905 and set up his own business, Wilsdorf &
Davis, with his brother-in-law Alfred Davis, providing quality
timepieces at affordable prices; the company later became Rolex.[13] Wilsdorf was an early convert to the wristwatch, and contracted the Swiss firm Aegler to produce a line of wristwatches.[14]The impact of the First World War
dramatically shifted public perceptions on the propriety of the man's
wristwatch and opened up a mass market in the postwar era. The creeping barrage
artillery tactic, developed during the war, required precise
synchronization between the artillery gunners and the infantry advancing
behind the barrage. Service watches produced during the War were
specially designed for the rigours of trench warfare, with luminous dials and unbreakable glass. The War Office began issuing wristwatches to combatants from 1917.[15]
By the end of the war, almost all enlisted men wore a wristwatch and
after they were demobilized, the fashion soon caught on: the British Horological Journal
wrote in 1917 that "the wristlet watch was little used by the sterner
sex before the war, but now is seen on the wrist of nearly every man in
uniform and of many men in civilian attire." By 1930, the ratio of a
wrist to pocket watches was 50 to 1. The first successful self-winding system was invented by John Harwood in 1923. https://www.wikipedia.org
