The first wristwatch was made in the late 19th century. Swiss watchmaker Patek Philippe is often credited with making the first wristwatch in 1868. This watch was specially designed for the Hungarian countess Koscowicz.

However, wristwatches were initially seen mainly as accessories for women. Men mainly wore pocket watches. The popularity of wristwatches for men increased significantly during World War I, when soldiers discovered that wristwatches were more convenient and practical than pocket watches during combat. After the war, the wristwatch became a widely accepted accessory for both men and women.
