As soon as we see someone carrying or wearing a steampunk wristwatch; we perceive them as a person who loves antique things and is definitely a keeper of these beautiful things. A wristwatch tells us a lot about a man; his position in society, his manners, his ability to value time and also the fact that he is a gentleman.
Sometimes a wristwatch, if it is an antique and old one, is passed down as a family’s heirloom to generation after generation. In earlier times; we saw rich people possessing this artifact, they had wristwatches made of platinum, brass or gold but that doesn’t mean a poor could not possess it; the watches that the poor used to have were generally made of simple metal or if the family initially was wealthy in the past or in older times then the wristwatch they have can also be of a valuable metal like gold or platinum.
Today, almost every man, woman or child is seen as wearing a wristwatch. We don’t really find antique, and vintage wristwatches anymore on someone’s wrist because maybe as the world is advancing people don’t like to wear such old fashion accessory or perhaps the people who own these steampunk wristwatch are keeping it safe and think it too valuable to wear in their day to day life. They only wear these watches on special occasions.
Nowadays; vintage wristwatches are hard to find in shops and even when you manage to find one; it is extremely expensive because of its uniqueness and its age, almost a luxurious item to buy. Wristwatches have been around for so long, since almost the 16th century when it was a mark of statement to keep and wear a wristwatch. It used to show your class in events and high-class gatherings.

If you create the whole Victorian era look, you will be more appraised for your look instead of just wearing the watch (your steampunk costume will especially look chic if it’s Halloween), but rest assured; the watches themselves are enough to make you look different in the crowd.

In the 16th century; the wristwatches were made with springs rather than with weights and the so-called portable watches were not really portable, instead they were huge, as vast as the size of a wall clocks and only the aristocrats were looked upon and known to own or buy such watches as they were considered a luxury item and something that only an aristocratic gentlemen could hold.
But slowly and gradually, the watches evolved, and the spring was introduced, and they took the place of weights; only then in the later 16th-century portable and lightweight wrist watches really came into being. Visit here for more steampunkdesk.com
