Do I need more ephemera on wristwatches? No, really I have original pictures from 1900.
That said - I posted this original photograph signed 1916 a while back. Shows an Austrian soldier from WWI with pistol and bayonet.
Look closely his wrist - a wristwatch - and a pretty large timepiece - maybe 38mm or larger.

Anyway take a look at this one - I can practically read the time from it
