The wrist watch became an instant hit when it was first introduced to the market. Before the wristwatch appeared in the market people used to carry watches in their pockets that used to hang from thin chains and had covers to protect the glass from getting scratched. They would pull the watch out of their pockets by pulling on the chain, flip open the cover and see the time. These watches were also costly affairs, and only the wealthy people could afford to have them. Other people had to do with clocks hanging on the walls or kept on the mantelpiece to see the time.
The first thing that resembled a wrist watch was seen in the early part of the twentieth century when people started wearing watches on their bracelets. A bracelet was considered to be something that is was worn by vaudeville actors as an instrument for making fun of time. But soon the bracelet with a watch became a wristwatch that was a predecessor to the IWC Pilot's Top Gun Replica IW501901. Time had migrated from the wall to the pocket and then to the wrist. The start of the First World War saw the wearing of wristwatches being made mandatory for soldiers.
Every maneuver or activity had to be performed at some particular time or other and soldiers had to abide by the time set by their commanders. The watches that were worn by soldiers were made from unbreakable glass that would protect the face and hands from impacts in the trenches while the hands and the figures were illuminated with radium so that they could be seen in the dark. The civilians were soon imitating these features of the soldiers’ watches on their watches too as they found that they could use the same benefits that the earlier version of the IWC Pilot’s Top Gun Replica IW501901 had.
Soon there were a large number of companies in the developed nations that started making wrist watches with various features like white and black faces, numbers for the hours or a combination of dots and figures, hour and minute hands with or without radium and many more features. The main component became the small machine that delivered the movement of the hands and some of the companies started giving lifetime warranties for the watches. A few of the companies became world famous and are still today considered as the finest watchmakers in the world who could make the originals of the IWC Portuguese 7 Days replica IW500107.
The first model had a lot of distinguishing features that made it a very popular watch such as a black titanium and ceramic case strong enough to withstand all kinds of heavy impacts, a black dial with numbers written in white, an automatic movement from one of the top watchmakers and many other features. Wristwatches like the second model IWC Portuguese 7 Days Replica IW500107 became even more popular with its power reserve feature and other features. Like many other wrist watches, these two wrist watches are also replicated versions of high-quality watches but priced much lower the original ones.
