About Watches

A watch is a timepiece that is made to be worn on a person. It is usually a wristwatch, attached to the wrist with a strap or bracelet. In addition to the time, modern watches often display the day, date, month and year, and electronic watches may have many other functions.

Most inexpensive and medium-priced watches used mainly for timekeeping are electronic watches with quartz movements. Expensive, collectible watches valued more for their workmanship and aesthetic appeal than for simple timekeeping, often have purely mechanical movements and are powered by springs, even though mechanical movements are less accurate than more affordable quartz movements.

The idea of timekeeping has been around for thousands of years, most notably starting with sundials in ancient civilizations. Since then, we have come a long way. In the 1500s, the first pocket watch was invented. A few hundred years later in the 1800s, Patek Phillippe & Co. created the first wristwatch. During the early 1900s, wristwatches began significantly more popular, after they were given to soldiers fighting in World War I. Once the war was over, the soldiers continued to wear their wristwatches, leading the general public to begin wearing wristwatches as well.

In recent years, watch technology has evolved greatly. Nowadays, you have an array of watch options to choose from to perfectly compliment your lifestyle and person preference. Morgan’s Jewelers carries a wide range of luxery watches from all of your favorite brands. You can view just a small selection of the watches we carry on our Watch page. We encourage you, however, you stop by one of our two Southern California showrooms in Rolling Hills Estates or Torrance to view our entire selection of watches, including watches from brands not available over the internet.
