Footnotes

Coin watches were first produced in the 1920s, and rose in popularity throughout the 20th century. During the 1920s, watches were incorporated into daily objects such as cigarette cases, lighters and lipstick holders.

Makers such as Cartier, Rolex, Patek Philippe, Piaget and Vacheron Constantin have produced coin watches. Real coins are utilised, with some examples with fitted lugs added on to be worn on the wrist.
