As early as the 19th century, there were sporadic clocks that could be attached to the arm. However, these were often jewelry watches for ladies. In men, the wristwatch was unpopular for a long time. Only the soldiers ‘ requirements brought the watch to the wrist.

Already in the year 1880, Girard-Perregaux of the German Navy had delivered 2000 watches that were worn on bracelets. But in the civilian population the wristwatch could not prevail. In the Second Boer War in South Africa (1899 to 1902), bracelet watches, this time from Omega, were used again. The positive testimonials of the front fighters and officers used the manufacturer to promote his models. With the beginning of the twentieth century, the number of skeptics began to decline slowly; As of 1910, more and more manufacturers offered such as Cartier, Rolex, Movado or Eterna wrist watches.

However, their final breakthrough only gave the wristwatch the First World War. The soldiers on the front of the watches made valuable services, as they were no longer cumbersome to show off their pocket watches. With their often protected glasses, waterproof over casings and in the dark glowing figures, the wrist watches claimed to be useful companions, which they did not want to miss even after the end of the war. The variety of models grew rapidly.
