History of your Pocket Watch.
When timepieces first became small enough to be carried about one's person, they were known as 'Pocket Watches'. At first, they were very much only for the landed gentry, most of whom owned large country estates and spent a lot of time on horseback. They wanted to take their new watches with them, firstly to impress the rest of the Hunt, and, as a poor second to be able to tell the time.
