    Watch

    A watch is a small portable clock worn attached to the wrist or with a chain in the pocket used to tell the time. The first watches were pocket watches developed as early as the 15th century after the invention of the tension spring replacing the pendulum. The first wrist watch was made in 1812 for the sister of Napoleon Bonaparte but the pocket watch stayed more popular until the 20th century when wrist watches with leather wristbands were used for soldiers and pilots that needed to use their hands. Today pocket watches are barely carried anymore. Wrist watches are attached to the wrist with leather, metal, or synthetic wristbands. Also digital, battery-powered watches have become popular.
