Pocket Watches are commonly known being seen in old photos and movies but where did they come from? They were first invented in the 1500s by a German locksmith Peter Henlein. They used to be so big though, they had to be worn around the neck! In fact, there is one ancient pocket watch left, thought to be made by Peter Henlein himself. It is the only one left that survived past WWII and it’s incredible. We found a video of the clock still working! Check out this antique timepiece.
