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.
The watch is in mint condition, so it's perfect as a gift for someone special.It would be a lovely surprise to receive such an elegant, eye-catching present!
Be it a Christmas or a Birthday gift, we recommend this one!
