Wrist Watches

Wrist watches were a natural development from the evolution of the pocket watch in the 17th Century. Patek Philippe & Co., perhaps one of the most well known brands today, made the first ever wrist watch in 1868, pioneering many functions including split seconds hand, chronograph and perpetual calendar. However, it wasn’t until 1904 that wrist watches became an acceptable piece for gentlemen to wear when the Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos Dumont asked his friend Louis Cartier to create a piece that would enable him to time his flights whilst keeping both hands on his controls. In response to this, Cartier and his watchmaker developed the first gent’s wristwatch aptly named the ‘Santos’ and, helped greatly by Dumont’s celebrity status, the wearing of a wrist watch became acceptable amongst gentlemen.

Today there is a plethora of quality wrist watch brands, for both ladies and gentlemen alike to choose from; from Rolex and Cartier to Patek Philipe and Longines, never has there been a greater choice.
