There were few problems with first clock watches. They were very heavy and it was not easy to carry them along with you. They only had hour hand in them. So it was difficult to know exact time. Winding was required on regular basis to know correct time. Gradually roman numerals got added to mark minutes of time. With the fast development watches needed to be wound once in a day rather than every twelve hours. As the technology progressed the mechanism got replaced by quartz vibrations.
