Who Invented the First Watch

Report as

The first watch was invented in 1504 in Nuremberg, Germany by Peter Henlein. Peter was also known for the invention of the first pocket watch. But there were so many clock makers making them at that time there is no real eveidence that he is the one the originally made the first watch, there are no other names to go by on from what people were giving credit back then. Look here for more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watch

As far as I know, the first watch was made by Kutbi, a renowned watch-maker of his time. During the Abbasid period, which lasted between 750-1258 the use of a watch became quite common.
