This is a true analog wind-up pocket watch, complete with a 12" long chain which has a belt hook on the end. The face is 1 ½” in diameter. Pull it out by the chain, spring open the attractive dimpled aluminum cover, and read the time of the day on the dial. It feels great to go through this simple ritual.
Not only fine looking, the pocket watch is often a more practical timepiece option: if you work with machinery (inside or outside) the vibration can be really hard on your wristwatch. You may not notice any obvious ill effect, but can it really be that good for it? (Personally, this writer always takes his off.) Instead of taking that risk, just slip this little beauty in your pocket – just like the railroad conductors did.
