( 1924) HAR­WOOD AU­TO­MATIC

Plaza Watch International - - The 50 Most Influential -

Sev­eral man­u­fac­tur­ers claim to have in­vented the first au­to­matic watch but ac­cord­ing to our his­to­rian this is the ti­tle­holder. It was shown at the Basel Fair in 1924 and caused a sen­sa­tion. John Har­wood sold the rights to For­tis to se­ri­ally man­u­fac­ture his in­ven­tion us­ing an A. Schild move­ment as the base. Blanc­pain and Felsa also in­tro­duced wrist­watches pow­ered by the same cal­i­bre.
