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.
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.

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.

We don’t do engraving, however, take it to a Jeweler and get a professional opinion. overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 5, 2012
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.myrubbersoul24 on Nov 27, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
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.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 28, 2012
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.mreman1978 on Aug 30, 2013

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.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 3, 2012
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.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 8, 2012
