All of us an early age are familiar with such remarkable accessory as a wrist watch, know what they look like and what is needed and many wear them, not yet learning to tell time. There is a perception that the watch does not show time, and symbolize it. Over time, to indicate which they it was invented, watches have gradually acquired symbolic meaning, becoming of the chronometer in the accessory and status token. To know the exact time is not labour – just look at the smartphone or lowered his eyes to the corner of the monitor, which many of us spend day and night. But at the same time and the young lady and respectable gentlemen, and children of generation zero continue to wear a wrist watch, which become part of the culture and represent the trends of fashion and style.
No matter how paradoxically, the wrist watch since its inception, as today, was first and foremost indicator of the status of its owner, and has the second – the exact time for the luxury of having the watch was available only to people rich. The first ever winner of the men's watches of the new generation, the so-called pocket, became Carl II. The emergence of such device is a compact, convenient and mobile became possible due to the spiral arm, which allowed to combine hours, minutes and seconds hands and significantly to reduce the bulky design of early chronometers. It happened in 1690, and already a century later, in 1790-m, master Pierre Droz, had the idea to attach to the body strap, and now watch is not only always at hand, but also gained attractive appearance, adding to the image of a business and stylish gentleman.
There the view that the first wrist watch has found application in the military, and many do ascribes to them the tradition of wearing a watch. To use the pocket clock the battlefield was not only uncomfortable, but difficult, so the soldiers tied on the wrist of an ordinary leather cases, which placed pocket watch. However, the attitude of the bracelets – so then called the wrist watch, has long been a biased and wary. Modest-sized, undignified the species was in doubt, and if accurate this watch is? Suitable whether they are for active life, such as equestrian activities or hunting? So up until the twentieth century men preferred the watch pocket, a gold or silver chain, with a lid that protects glass from cracking.
Wrist watch as an accessory at all times worn by the ladies, and to this day is stylistically significant part of a lady's toilet, can tell a lot about the one to whom they belong. One of the first lucky ones who received a gift of such an unusual attribute, was Queen Elizabeth I. Watch, presented to her by count Lester was a true work of art: the rich, encrusted with pearls and diamonds. Another mention of the first ladies dated an hour 1812, when the famous watchmaker Louis Breguet, founder of the eponymous brand, made the bracelet for the Queen of Naples. It is known that its face was silver, with Arabic numerals.
In everyday life wrist watches came only in the twentieth century, and since then their appearance has undergone significant changes and significantly increased functionality. In addition to the leather bracelets, the widely used bracelets of flexible metal, and later appeared bracelets, mesh and rubber. Gradually, the attribute became more comfortable, practical, elegant, improved accuracy, reliability of the movement and strength of the glass, the most vulnerable part of the body. Watch as an individual everyday accessory was a kind of compromise: they do not you need to be too technically difficult, but to be attractive and unique they just have to! In the late twentieth century to replace the mechanical clock came quartz and electronic, with high precision data and digital dials. A remember domestic model "electronics" with a red glass filter, know-how seventies that light up when you press the button and not lie on the shelves of Soviet stores. By the way, some models of steel watches, for example, "Raketa 3031", had cost more gold.
