Wrist Watches Were Made for Women


Did you know that wrist watches were originally made only for women?

According to one claim, the first wrist watch was made as a gift by the nobleman Robert Dudley to Queen Elizabeth I, the other says that Napoleon ordered that such gift was made to his beloved Josephine in 1806, and the third that the Swiss company Patek Philippe made the first wrist watch for one Hungarian countess. These watches were exclusively for women until the First World War when soldiers began using them in order to move more freely.
