The oldest surviving wristwatch (then described as a bracelet watch) is one made in 1806 and given to Joséphine de Beauharnais.Wristwatches were first worn by military men towards the end of the 19th century, when the importance of synchronizing manoeuvres during war, without potentially revealing the plan to the enemy through signaling, was increasingly recognized.The Garstin Company of London patented a "Watch Wristlet" design in 1893, but they were probably producing similar designs from the 1880s.

Developments in the 2010s include smartwatches, which are elaborate computer-like electronic devices designed to be worn on a wrist.

Today most watches that are inexpensive and medium-priced, used mainly for timekeeping, have quartz movements.
