Since the early 16th century, a pocket watch has been known as an indication of affluence. To date, they provide elegance and are in high demand all around the world. That's why gentlemen continue to treasure pocket watches. Although British army officers started to wear wristwatches in the 1880s, the trend of wearing pocket watches endured. The first pocket clock was invented in 1510 by a German watch designer, Peter Henlein. Charles II of England coined the term "pocket watch," and began keeping the watch in his pocket. Soon pocket watches were regarded as a luxury piece in Europe and North America.

The watch became much more common in the 18th century when more detailed features and designs with diamonds and jewels started being included. This turned pocket watches into a very costly luxury piece, often purchased only by the elite. As standardized watch pieces were introduced in the 1800s, the pocket watch was eventually made public. And so pocket watches became famous for decades. However, these vintage and antique watches started to lose their value after wristwatches entered the industry. Nonetheless, in the 1950s and 1970s, it made a serious comeback.
