The year 1868 marks the first making of the wrist watch as far as historical records stretch; Patek Philippe was the inventor. Wrist watches were considered part of women's ornaments. Whereas, men used to keep pocket watches.. This trend persisted till the World War 1.

The shape of the dial started to modify from the conventional classic round shape. Other brands started to evolve, apart from classical Cartier wrist watch. These brands had attributes with regards to design and shape. The "polyplan" design watch was launched by Movado, while the rectangular shaped watch was released by Patek Philippe which got much fame and recognition. This was called "clock reference n.1953" Several watches with different styles and design began to evolve in the watch market after the year 1913. Some models of the watches got their inspirations from the armoured cars. Examples of such watches include "gondola" created by Patek Philippe and "Tank" launched by Louis Cartier. Amongst the many names in the watch market was one of Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constanin. The watches were now available with advanced and developed features.
