Watch Wednesday featuring Fossil

Today is Watch Wednesday! Every Wednesday I will be talking about different watch brands, properly cleaning your watch, types of watches, changing the battery, etc. To start off the weekly blog posts about watches, let’s find out a little bit of history about watches and who invented them.

Who invented the wristwatch and when was it invented?  In the early 1900’s, the wristwatch, originally called a “Wristlet”, was reserved for women and considered more of a passing fad than a serious timepiece. Men, who carried pocket watches, were quoted as saying they would “sooner wear a skirt as wear a wristwatch”. This changed in WWI, when soldiers on the battlefield found pocket watches to be impractical and attached their watches to their wrist by a cupped leather strap. It is believed that Girard-Perregaux equipped the German Imperial Navy with wristwatches in a similar fashion as early as the 1880’s, to be used while synchronizing naval attacks and firing artillery.

Watches not only tell us what time it is, but can also serve as a fashion statement for both men and women. They come in many variations, from plastic, leather, ceramic, rubber, metal, and more. Here at Jewelry Warehouse, we have many watch styles available from Citizen, Pulsar, Seiko, Suntime and Fossil.
