In the mid-19th century Earlsdon was a hub of activity for the rising watch-making trade. Even as this industry began to decline, Earlsdon continued to grow, and in in 1890 was incorporated into the City of Coventry but was still almost cut off from it.

In 1897 the opening of Albany Road, named after HRH Princess Helena, Duchess of Albany, who visited Coventry in November the following year, allowed for far greater access to and from the rest of the city and development in Earlsdon quickly increased. The City tramway system was extended along the Butts up Albany Road into the main shopping area, which quickly grew. By 1918, the area was fully developed as it is today and, with little redevelopment, has kept much of its original character.

The watchmakers cottages of old are now retail shops, and although long gone, the watch-making trade is still represented by the clock on the roundabout at the bottom of the high street.
