Banneker Watches

Benjamin BannekerIn the 9 th of November, 1731, in the town of MarylandDerrick M. Holmes - CEO Benjamin Banneker – the first famous afro - american inventor-was born. His grandfather and father were the former slaves, so that Benjamin was born free. Benjamin grew up on a farm of his father near the river Patapsco. He spent much time studying nature. To read and write he was taught by his grandmother who used the Bible for the lessons. Soon the teacher came to the village, and he began to attend school. Then he continued to engage in various research and study of astronomy. Thanks to the irrigation system developed by Benjamin, the tobacco farm of his family has continued to remain productive even in the driest season of the year. He built a system of dikes and dams by means of which the necessary amount of water went on the farm from the sources. In 1753, at the age of 21, Benjamin bought his neighbor's pocket watch. They needed him by no means for wearing; he made out the watch on the individual component parts, carefully studied them, drew up sketches of the parts and then assembled. These drawings became the foundation for his future watches. Soon he made a big wooden striking watch that had been displaying the time in 50 years. This mechanism was the first watch that was completely assembled in the United States.
