    History of Watches

    Many of you might already have seen this, but some might not and I thought they'd find it interesting.

    Re: History of Watches

    Date is somewhat off for the automatic. Harwood working with Fortis
    came out with the first auto in serial production in 1926, or was it 28?
    Harwood got the patent in 1924.

    One date left out, December 1959. The first Bulova Accutron was sold.

    It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.....
