Time is abstract, because the world becomes concrete with the record of the

table. We don’t wear watches, we wear history.Let me tell you about the

interesting history of watches。
The first watch worn on the wrist was designed for Queen Elizabeth I in the

mid 1800’s. Women of stature started wearing them, and at the time the

watches were covered with jewels – being able to tell time was secondary to

the fashion statement. Back then, men would not consider wearing a

wristwatch because they were thought to be women’s fashion item. That

changed during the world wars, as soldiers started wearing them as a purely

functional item. After the wars the soldiers returned home wearing the

watches and telling stories. The fate of the wristwatch was set. Who would

not want to be like a war hero?

Abraham-Louis Breguet was a Master Watchmaker first recognized around 1784.

He was born in Switzerland in 1747, his father died when he was only eleven

years old and his mother married his cousin, who was also a watchmaker.

Breguet became an apprentice in Versailles when he was fifteen years old and

during the following decade his destiny as a maker of fine watches was


He was tutored in optics, mechanics, astronomy and physics by Abbot Joseph-

Fraincois Marie, who was a professor in Paris. A Master watchmaker named

Ferdinand Berthoud made Abbot an apprentice in the art of making watches of

the highest quality. A master watchmaker named Jean-Antoine Le’pine worked

closely with him on technical inventions. The inventions they designed are

still in use today. He opened a business of his own making in Paris in the

year 1775 selling fine watches. Two years later he invented an automatic

repeater watch for Marie-Antoinette, who was then Queen of France. He

received an interesting request in 1783: He was asked to design a watch for

an Officer of the Queen’s Guard that would integrate all the modern

developments of the age. No price or time limit was set. It was unfortunate

that the Queen died before she was able to see the n¡ã 160 watch which was

named after her. This amazing watch was placed in the Mayer Memorial Museum

in Jerusalem in 1968, where it was stolen and has never been found.

Today, wristwatches can be found in every shape, style, color, price range,

functionality and brand name you can think of. The neat thing about watches

is that they all say something about the person wearing the watch, even more

so than most jewelry. People look at a watch and instantly know something

about the wearer of the watch. Since replica watches are available at

as a portable timepiece, a watch is a symbol of a person’s success, style,

and attitude. A high-quality luxury watch shows that you have the style,

taste, and trust in your efforts. Shopping for good quality replica watches
