The history of pocket watches is long and interesting. Starting out as pieces of art, featuring beautiful enamel paintings, pocket watches were not so accurate at telling the time in their beginnings. Pocket watches were also owned by the rich families and were often passed on from father to son. Their popularity grew over the years, especially during the two World Wars, when having a pocket watch as a soldier was something common.
Although nowadays pocket watches are no longer so frequently used, they still have beautiful, timeless design qualities that cannot be replaced by wristwatches. And every now and again, a pocket watch is just the accessory you need to make an impression: a wedding, a party, a formal occasion, etc. Many of our pocket watches are tiny pieces that can be worn as medallions/pendants as well.

About mechanical watches
A mechanical watch is a watch that uses a clockwork mechanism to measure the passage of time, as opposed to quartz watches which function electronically, with the help of a small battery.
A mechanical watch is driven by a mainspring which must be hand-wound periodically. Its force is transmitted through a series of gears to power balance, a weighted wheel that oscillates back and forth at a constant rate. A device called an escapement releases the watch's wheels to move forward a small amount with each swing of the balance wheel, moving the watch's hands forward at a constant rate.
