Thanks, same to you!
Sure...some links would be cool. I've pretty much quit carrying my phone around and I dont really really like wrist watches that much. A pocket watch might be the ticket...Thanks.
This is the pocket watch i use
And here are some other pocket watches to choose from
Hope this helps! its also your choice on how you want to wear a pocket watch.
Ok Thanks. Lots of choices. I see yours is the mechanical type which I like. Dont really care for the battery ones. I will check out the US Amazon site.
You folks have inspired me to go find my old pocket watch, given as a birthday present nine years ago, and actually use the dang thing instead of gathering dust. But how can it be used in the Philippines, where pickpocketing is an ever-present hazard on the daily commute?
Chain, a good chain, i should imagine a thicker chain would work.
Also, don't show it off, if you wear it on your jeans, pull your shirt down over it.
If you wear it with a waistcoat, then do your jacket up.
don't take it out of your pocket in shady areas.
I believe waistcoats are harder to pickpocket as the majority of the pockets are on the front, and if you wear a nice blazer, it's even safer.
Hope this helps!
Found this interesting as I have never seen one before with the Hebrew numerals. Belonged to Sinai (Sehua) Kantor who's body was recovered by the Mackay-Bennett . It recentley sold at auction for 57K. Got this info from the British Titanic Society so credit goes to them.
I still have my Grandfather's gold Hamilton given to him at the end of WW1. I wore it a few times up until about 12 years ago. Then, I had a waistcoat with a fob pocket. It still keeps perfect time - if I keep it wound.
Nice. 1918...a hundread year old watch with a story behind it. Hold on tight to that one.
