Earliest Watch Known to Man

Since the advent of moving clockwork, discerning individuals have sought out beautiful form to match practical function.

The oldest known watch dates back nearly 500 years. The spherical watch is dated 1530 and decorated with elaborately detailed gold gilt. The watch was engraved on the bottom by its maker with a mark that translates “Philip Melanchthon, to God alone the glory, 1530.” Experts believe that the watch was created in Nuremberg, the place where spherical watches were invented. These watches are known as Nuremberg Eggs.

It was commissioned for influential educator and reformer Philipp Melanchthon. Melachthon was famous for his hospitality and his attention to family. One guest is said to have shared a story of coming into Melanchthon’s study to see him holding a book in one hand and rocking the cradle of his child with the other.

While Melanchthon was not known for a love of money or possessions, it’s likely that, as one of the great minds of the Reformation, he appreciated the precision and workmanship of a good watch. This timepiece was designed to sit on a table or desk where the owner could have it nearby. The perforated design allowed Melanchthon to view the time without opening the watch. A single winding would run the watch for 12 to 16 hours; the watch showed time to the nearest half hour, which was impressively precise for the technology of the time.

The appeal of a beautiful precision watch is timeless. And, modern times allow us to enjoy a wider variety of elegant timepieces than ever. Jacobtime.com gives you access to options that include Movado watches, Rado watches, Marc Jacobs watches and many other top tier brands.

New in the World of Watches

Luxury timepieces such as Movado watches and Marc Jacobs watches make a statement thanks to their stylish appearance and high-quality construction. When considering the worth of a watch; however, learning what else a watch can do besides look stylish and tell time is of interest.

New watch design: Hidden pill compartment watch
Although the outside appearance of the watch gives the impression that it is not any different than other watches, a simple twist of the watch’s face reveals a hidden compartment in which medication can be stored.

The concept of the watch design was created by Jingyu Lee and was meant to look like a regular everyday watch with a practical purpose. In addition to having a compartment for medication, the pill watch also measures a wearer’s heart rate and pulse.

The pill watch is just one example of the innovation in watch design that is becoming popular on today’s market. Watches are now created to serve a greater purpose than just telling time and looking good, and the pill watch is a great example of such a watch.
