Yes, women first pioneered wearing watches on the wrist. According to some historians Queen Elizabeth I did it first followed by Queen Marie Antoinette which commissioned a diamond ‘bracelet watch’.
But, it looks like in 1810, Abraham-Louis Breguet designed and made it for Queen of Naples. It was a thin, oval repeater watch, mounted on a wrist-let of hair and Gold thread.
Next was another important Swiss watch manufacturer Patek Philippe. He made it for Countess Koscowicz of Hungary in 1868 and it was more a piece of costume jewelry than a ‘timepiece’.
