PostSubject: Origins of the wristwatch   Mon Aug 31, 2015 3:37 pm

Not sure if anyone caught this very interesting article both history, and watch history wise over
at Wound for Life.

The article talks about how years ago at the turn of the 20th century that wrist watches were usually
called wristlets at that time, and were mainly worn by women. However, in the military, and during
wars like the Second Boer War in South Africa between the UK, Orange Free State, and South African
Republic between 1899-1902. Wrist watches became more important due to their convenience, and
also accuracy.

Have the article here for you...
