This interesting infographic was put together by The Watch Gallery which is based in the UK. The challenge with timelines such as these is what to include and what not to include (a lot has happened in watchmaking over the last couple hundred years!). I immediately noticed some notable brands and innovations that were missing — Vacheron Constantin (1755), Breguet, and the invention of the tourbillon (patented 1801) for example. So yes, it is a bit selective, but still some interesting history is reflected.
