A traditional gift of a golden anniversary clock or his and hers watches can all be engraved with a special message. An anniversary clock is a very traditional gift and became popular in the early 1900s as a wedding gift. The name 'anniversary clock' was copyrighted in 1901 by the Bowler & Burdock Co., Ohio. This was because this style of clock had a mechanism that allowed it to run for 400 days without winding. It became popular as a wedding gift as you only had to wind it up once a year - normally on the couple's anniversary. Today most of the anniversary clocks are battery operated as the mechanism was so delicate in the original clocks they were easily damaged. But the name anniversary clock still remains.
And that is really what a 50th wedding anniversary is about, family and friends celebrating a great couple.
