  • 24 Jun 2019

The watches have been around us throughout our lives and have evolved with us. From the sun and water clocks, to the digital ones that accompany us today in day to day, from the beginning of the day with the need to have a notion of time.

A tool that from the beginning was very useful to determine harvest seasons with a precision not so exact and nowadays it is presented with a better precision. Better and more affordable, with a lower manufacturing cost. It is one of the most popular objects today, everyone has one of these, many other appliances include a digital clock without counting that currently all computers and smart phones include one.

Our shop offers straps for watches of the best quality, unique and adaptable for all types of wristwatch.

The main task of a clock is to distribute the time in understandable units (hours, minutes, seconds ...) for our use. In addition to its practical function it has become a jewelery item. The highest precision achieved by a clock is an atomic clock developed by the National Standardization Office, it started operating in 1999 and has a margin of error of one second every 30 million.

Over time, different kinds of watches have been known, at first there was a great variety that worked with some natural resources such as water or the sun. The Egyptians created the solar clock in the times of the Ptolemies, the hourglasses or water clocks was perfected by Ctesibio who was a disciple of the Romans and with this could measure how long they took in his speeches. There is a theory that says weight and wheel clocks were invented by a monk (Pope Sylvester II). The first oldest registered mechanical watch is that of Richard de Wallingford, who built an astronomical clock which was considered the most complex for his time. The second is the one that Santiago Dondis had built in Pauda in 1344 and the third was the one in the Louvre Museum in Paris sent from Germany by King Charles V of France.

An electronic clock is a clock in which the time base is electronic or electromechanical, as is the frequency division. The accuracy of the clock depends on the time base, which can consist of an oscillator or an adapter that, from a reference, generates a periodic signal.The frequency divider is a digital circuit formed by a succession of counters until obtaining a frequency of 1 Hz, which allows to show seconds. If you want to show tenths, the division stops when you reach 10 Hz. This frequency goes to the presentation module, which can be electronic or mechanical, where other divisors separate the seconds, minutes and hours to present them through some type of screen.

The first person to design a pocket watch was Pedro Bell from Nuremberg, thanks to his appearance they were named as "Nuremberg eggs". Currently there is a wide variety of watches for general use such as wall and anteroom or for personal use such as pocket or wristwatches that today are considered an accessory which you can find in many different designs both in their mechanisms as for your belts which you can find a great variety of styles and colors in our catalogs with a great range for all the brands that manufacture these watches.
