The First Pocket Watches

Did you know that early pocket watches were first created in the late 1400s?  By 1524, Peter Henlein, a master locksmith of Nuremberg, was regularly manufacturing pocket watches. At that time, they were unusually shaped and were worn on a ribbon or chain around the neck.  They were also used primarily by the upper class.  Early watches only had an hour hand, the minute hand appearing in the late 17th century.
