Tick Tock Waterproof Watch

Volume 3, Issue 13, September 5, 2013

New and emerging technology is taking over the wonderful world of keeping time in this new waterproof world of tick tock magic. Watches as small as a finger-sized watch and band have been invented and are now available in waterproof casings. Yes, those sporting enthusiasts are one lucking bunch to be the generation to have it available to them. These finger-sized (ring watches) watches are a sporting enthusiasts dream, and you cannot help but admire the availability, size, lightweight material, and the style of sporting a ring-sized watch (

The inventor of the ring-sized watch is Gusztav Szikszai who created this ingenuious device in 2011.

Not only are watches available in digital and electronic capacity but the traditional sized and stylized watch is available in a waterproof casing. So you can swim, run and walk, go camping, hiking, and exercise into a breaking sweat of dripping proportions that it will remain dry and continue to tick at optimal levels.

Inspired by the wall clock, the watch was invented to carry a timepiece wherever you go, that also inspired the portable timepieces. So when was the watch invented? Portable timepieces where invented and developed in the 1500’s by Peter Henlein of Nurnberg. They were first carried on a chain and then evolved into the watch on the wrist. Driven and moved by electronic and quartz pulses the watch is somewhat a magical marvel and more than likely the inspiration to computer innovation and creation. One of the reasons it is a marvel is because of the fact that these timepieces were so small and apparently they required little battery voltage to move and drive the electromagnetic pulsated fields of motion to move the hands of the clock.

The wristwatch was invented and created by a woman, a nanny to be exact that did not have her name mentioned but it is documented in the 19th century. It could be at the time that time or era, it may have been during a time when women where still not allowed to vote. We must also remember the date because it was only in the 1920’s that women were granted the privilege to vote. The primary reason could be that women’s suffrage had not ended in the United States.

Timepieces went from electronic, to electric, and to digital drives within the last two centuries. Styles changed over the course of a century from wall clock to hanging timepiece, to a wrist-watch and in the present a ring-sized watch. Portability is a very lucrative ingredient when you think about any type of product. We live in a world that is continually changing and evolving, continually on the go and sometimes in such a rushed and hurried age.

The wall clock, hanging timepiece, and wrist-watch changed along with the environmental changes of the era, including the lifestyles of the people who purchase the timepieces. The watch has been re-invented numerous times by different people and different cultural contributors like the Germans, Swiss, Japanese, and Americans. Innovation and ingenuity is not only an American thing but it could be an invention of anyone, any culture, and is non-discriminatory.
