    Just for Fun

    Hey guys, I guess most know who is responsible for making what popular in the watch world but for some of us new to the hobby we haven't quite figured it out yet. So my suggeston for this game is to contribute a brand and it's important contribution. Be sure the brand is responsible for the model chosen and not just contributing a copy of another brands idea.

    Example

    Rolex = Submariner and DateJust

    Breitling=

    Omega=

    etc.

    Thanks hope this works.
    Rolex Yacht-Master SS/Platinum
    Frederique Constant Chrono
    Sinn 356
    Debaufre Ocean 1 39mm

    1963 Chinese Airforce 21 zuan :(bummer):

    HMT Pilot Black Dial
    HMT Pilot White Dial
    Hamilton Khaki Field hand wind :)

    Re: Just for Fun

    Please update if im wrong, but here are a few pioneers IMHO:

    Omega = Speedmaster Chronograph

    Perrilet = The Automatic movement

    Breguet = The Tourbillon movement (A.P Breguet is resp for mainly everything else! Being the daddy of horology )

    Breitling = the Ani-digi Emergency

    Paiget = the ultra-thin dress watch

    Doxa = the cushion case diver

    Corum = the "bubble" crystal (very domed convex crystal)

    Casio = the digital watch (not first, but best IMO)

    Panerai = that iconic crown guard

    Rado = the diastar "helmet" shaped case

    Patek Phillipe = silicum mainspring

    Fortis = first auto chrono with alarm feature

    Ball & luminox = tritium gas tubes

    Anonimo = the crown @ six 'oclock


    Again these are just my opinion for brands being the pioneers of whatever i mentioned, not necessarily the inventors.

    TIMEX - A watch for all, with decent timekeeping, and good reliability.

    Don't forget, before the quartz invasion, Timex did have a line of very good 17 jewel stainless steel cased watches, in addition to the pin-lever fodder.
