Another history lesson from James Dray....
Peter Heniein was born in Nuremberg, Germany back in 1485 to Peter and Barbara. From what records, I could find is he apprenticed as a locksmith. In 1504, he was involved in a brawl that left fellow locksmith Georg Glaser dead. Instead of fleeing he asked for asylum in the Franciscan Monastery in Nuremberg, which was granted.
While in the monastery he acquired knowledge of astronomy, mathematics and one other thing (we’ll get to that in a moment). He was also an inventor, by 1509, he was a master in the city of Nuremberg locksmith guild. He died in 1542 in Nuremberg.
What you may not know about Peter is that he invented the world’s first watch. He is regarded as the first watchmaker in the history of timekeeping. He also invented the first portable watch in history. He called his watches “pomander”. If you can find one, which I doubt, but stranger things have happened. You may retire. Okay Barbara Todaro, do your thing.
