The watch antique gousset man gearing dates back to November 1562. A letter of this date, written by the Italian clockmaker Bartholomew Manfredi, was found in which he offers a pocket clock to the Marquis of Mantua Federico Gonzaga for whom the letter was intended. Peter Henlein, a locksmith and watchmaker from Nuremberg, is said to have been the inventor of the skeleton watch with gears. To date, this remains uncertain. He was indeed the first German craftsman who succeeded in making a timepiece into a pendant.
