  • An elegant watch

    I've only had this watch for a short time, so of course I can't comment on whether it will keep on ticking through years of use. But so far, I'm happy with it. The one caveat is that it is not easy to tell the time with a quick glance--the mechanism shows in a very busy way, and the hands are thin and blend in. So if you need a device that allows you to always know the time without effort, and to safely look at while you drive a car, then you are better off with a cheap quartz watch. But if you would like something that looks beautiful, as a bit of a fashion statement, this watch is superb. Your friends will probably think you paid a lot more for it.

  • An updated classic

    Pocket watches are a thing of the past, right? Who could possibly want one, in this day of ultra-thin, highly accurate quartz watches? The answer is, someone who appreciates a mass-produced item with a fit and finish rarely found in this day and age. This is a beautiful timepiece... that's right, it isn't merely a watch. The design is classic, and it will look good in 100... 200... 500 years (not that I'll be around then). It is also very accurate, gaining less than a minute per day. Since it needs daily winding, that's not a problem: I just set it back about 30 seconds when I wind it. If you want to make yourself or someone you care for feel special... here's one way you can do it.

  • Disappointed

    Bought as a gift for my bf. I was extremely excited when I opened the box. The watch appears exactly as pictured and appeared to be of good quality for the price. Unfortunately, the second hand was broken --completely detached from the center dial. Returned for replacement

  • Better than Advertised

    I wanted a good inexpensive pocket watch as a gift. I had bought this exact type for myself and am very happy with it, so it was my first-choice. A feature I greatly appreciate is that is has a small, fold-out stand that you can use to prop the watch on a tabletop. I have taken to winding the watch daily in the morning because there are some days when I don't carry it, and on those days, the arms stop moving. This doesn't happen on the days I carry the watch in my pocket. The winding is merely a precaution and might not be necessary for other users.

  • Beautiful watch

    My coworkers and I got this watch for my boss, and it is stunning. He wears it all of the time. I think it's a real show stopper!

  • Beautiful Watch but.....

    Received the watch and was absolutely thrilled with it for the first 2 weeks. Its is a beautiful watch and I received many remarks about it. I had been very careful with it making sure I don't wind it to tight which is the main reason mechanical watches break. Then the watch just started losing time. First it was a few minutes then an hour and finally stopped all together. I will be returning this of course but I am really disappointed and just don't trust the watch anymore even if they do manage to fix it.

Questions & Answers

Get your product questions answered right here.
  • Why did you choose this product?

    • I am a big pocket watch fan but the main issue I have with them it that the panels on the watch always break to easily, hopefully this classical style will be more to my liking.

  • Does this watch come with a case?

    • Hello chap236, this watch does not come with a protective case. I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Thank you for shopping with us!

  • Also can this watch be engraved? This question was asked in august by someone else and never answered. I need to know to buy it or not, thank you

    • We don’t do engraving, however, take it to a Jeweler and get a professional opinion.

  • How heavy is this watch?

  • Why does it say mechanical movement on the picture of the back of the pocket watch? I want to be sure that it is indeed an automatic pocket watch.

    • This watch is an automatic but needs to be manually wound if left alone for long periods of time. Then you will use the manual windup to get it started again.

    • Movement: Automatic

    • Either the pictures shown here are not correct, or the watch is not an automatic. Automatic watches have a self winding weight (the weight that translates motion into mechanical winding) which is usually a very prominent feature of the internals of a watch and none of the pictures show a self winding weight. I'm very skeptical this is self winding unless these photos are inaccurate.

  • Is the watch able to have engravings on it? Also, is the front glass scratch resistant crystal?

    • An open exhibition dial is topped with two black hands and a scratch-resistant mineral crystal on this men's pocket watch. I am finding out about if you can engrave on it or not. please allow me 1-2 business days to get back with this answer.

    • Although we have not tried to engrave this item, it looks like it can be engraved. The front is made of scratch-resistant mineral crystal.
