Watches appeared in the 14th century. The 'watch' was designed to be a small and portable timepiece device which enabling one to time-keep and carry time wherever one goes, so to say have 'time to hand'.
As technology advanced in the 17th century the watch evolved from mechanical driven clockworks which were not so accurate, to vibrating quartz crystals that produced accurately timed electronic pulses. After this came the radio clock technology which corrected time regularly, and in the 70's came development of digital electronic watches which brought new functions and ways of using and wearing a watch.
Today the wrist watch is not only used for timekeeping, but is seen as a 'must have' fashionable and cultural item with multiple functions available. These functions can display day and date, calendar, chronograph functions, alarm, timer, backlights, stopwatch, calculators, measurements of depth, smart technology and more.

It's amazing to think before clocks, time was measured by the sun. The oldest time-measuring instrument was a sundial, this told the time of day by the position of the sun in the sky casting a shadow onto the surface of a flat plate with a vertical gnomon. This time measurement indicated solar time which was not always accurate.
Today, when we think of a clock, we automatically know it's a instrument that conveys the time. The modern day measurement of time is shown through the hands on the face of a clock, where the long hand measures time in minutes and the short hand measures time in hours. There are many different types of clocks that come in various shapes, sizes, styles and measurements (digital or analogue), from wall clocks to alarm clocks.
Time is a funny thing, without time there is no structure hence for the need of clocks. We are always working against the clock and almost bound to time in many ways than we realise in our busy existence.
