From the time unknown, people around the world are using watches to know about the duration of the day and particularly helping out the people to know the exact time especially who are very punctual for their things. Then as the time passed by and the world of technology was moving further, some genius person designed and made a watch that could show you the time while you are mobilizing from places to places. This was the time when wristwatch came into existence. When the wrist watch was at its evolving stage, watches used to be of analog type only and they were mostly mechanically driven.
