Renaissance Clocks

Three types of early portable timepieces are being distinguished:

  1. Drum Watches
  2. Pomander Watches
  3. Neck Watches

Only the first two of these three types of timepieces are certain to have existed during the lifetime of Peter Henlein (approx. 1480 - 1542). However, since the first depiction of a neck watch dates to 1545 it is very likely that it has been created during his lifetime as well. Hence we refer to all three of these as 'Henlein-watches'.
