Initially known as Nuremberg watches in the early 16th century, the first timepieces that transitioned from clocks were worn around the neck as a necklace or fastened to the attire of the gentlemen.
The first known pocket watch came to be in 1675 when King Charles II of England introduced a new concept of waistcoats that featured pockets perfectly designed to fit most pocket watches.
As the pocket watch began to evolve, they were widely considered luxury items until the mid 19th century when American made pocket watches became mass produced.
Pocket watches have been the groom's favorite style of watch for many years.
