Once upon A TIME..!!!

What then is time?  If no one asks me, I know what it is.  If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know.  ~Saint Augustine

Before wristwatches became popular in the 1920s, most watches were pocket watches, which often had covers and were carried in a pocket and attached to a watch chain or watch fob. In early 1900s, the wristwatch, originally called a Wristlet, was reserved for women and considered more of a passing fad than a serious timepiece. Real gentlemen, who carried pocket watches, were actually quoted as saying they would "sooner wear a skirt as wear a wristwatch"

This all changed in World War I when soldiers on the battlefield found using a pocket watch to be impractical, so they attached the pocket watch to their wrist by a cupped leather strap. It is also believed that Girard-Perregaux equipped the German Imperial Navy in a similar fashion as early as the 1880s, which were used while synchronizing naval attacks and firing artillery.

  1. I like the small descriptions you give.
    And the PIC- as always good :) 2nd more awesome

  2. Fastrack baby!
    Not only did you click it well but you also made the second pic luk so classy that it literally made me think about the time passing by.

  3. I like the anglle and your approach. But the result could have been more sharper...
    try vignetting in the first pic. It will automatically accentuate the watch and the metallic rim...

    In the 2nd pic, Try o reduce the glare on the watch. It is v distracting
    bUt i love the framing man! gotta give it to u for that! :)

  4. @Kaveer : Thanks a ton bud :)
