The early pendant watch was more of a fashion statement
than it was a time keeping device.
Early watches were more suited to wearing around the neck than trying to squeeze into one's pocket. It is believed that Henry VIII probably wore a watch on a chain around his neck. Then in 1524, German locksmith Peter Henlein created the first pocket watch and everything changed. It didn't take long for pocket watches to spread throughout Europe and England among the elite as fashion pieces, not time pieces.
Today there is an emerging market for antique pendant watches, not only as fashion pieces, but as collectibles. The prestige of owning one of these precision instruments of the past is being recognized by a growing number collectors everyday.
