We specialise in these fine watch brands
An early reference to the pocket watch was in a letter in November 1462 from the Italian clockmaker, Bartholomew Manfredi, to the Marchese di Mantova Federico Gonzaga, in which he offers him a “pocket clock” better than the one belonging to the Duke of Modena.
By the end of the 15th century, spring-driven clocks appeared in Italy. By 1524, in Germany, Peter Henlein, a master locksmith of Nuremberg, was regularly manufacturing pocket watches.
As the 16th century progressed, pocket watch manufacture spread throughout the rest of Europe. Early watches only had an hour hand, the minute hand appearing in the late 17th century.
