A brief history of timepieces on a poster


Let's face it: A Brief History Of Time might be famous, but who out there has actually understood it, and made it all the way to the end? Not many - and if you say you have, you're probably lying.

An altogether more easy-on-the-eye version is this (brief) History Of Time(pieces) poster, lovingly collated by design company Calm The Ham.

It's a visual history of famous watches that exhibits 49 hand-illustrated classics, together with the iconic people famous for wearing them. The Steve McQueen Monaco, the Paul Newman Rolex Daytona and Marty McFly's Casio Twincept Databank are all there; it even keeps it up to date by including the Apple Watch.

You can pick up an 18" x 24" print from Calm The Ham, with prices starting at $47 (£31); take a look at it below and click the first image to see a hi-res version.
