Brief History

Patrice- This section is in here to explain how clocks became wristwatches; specifically how they functioned up until the invention of the wristwatch. I realize there could be very in-depth article about timekeeping which is why I've tried to summarize through timekeeping devices very quickly. Notice I'm not covering anything about shift/drift, losing or gaining seconds, weights and measures, tick rates or time changes in altitudes. --Robert W King 16:42, 15 December 2007 (CST)

I think it would be sufficient to explain how watches became wristwatches. However, there is no urgency since there are few articles about timekeeping. --Patrice Gross 05:00, 16 December 2007 (CST)
