It seems that the pocket watch is making a bit of a comeback in the watch community. Always a piece of elegance, George Daniels “stressed the feel of a pocket watch and the ability to carry it with you and examine its movement whenever you pleased were traits you simply could not find in a timepiece strapped to the wrist”. If you’re looking to get your hands on a great pocket watch for your collection there are many vintage options readily available. For a more modern look you can always turn to Jaquet Droz, Patek Phillippe, and Breguet for a superb timepiece while Omega and Tissot offer some at a more affordable price range. The pocket watch is one of the greatest inventions that combines “elements from multiple trades and sciences into one pocket-sized machine” and it’s exciting to see it back in peoples hands.
