What are Pocket Watches?
Pocket watches refer to a type of timepiece that is designed to be worn within the owner's pocket. These watches do not feature the usual bands that are designed to be strapped to the wearer's wrist. Before wristwatches became popular after the first World War, pocket watches were considered the most common type of timepiece used. Pocket watches are usually secured to a belt loop, lapel, or waistcoat with a leather strap or chain. The covers and chains are also decorated with either colored enamel or silver. They may also feature seals of special societies or coats of arms.
The two basic pocket watches styles include the hinged variations and open-faced variations. The former is also called Hunter pocket watches. These are the watches that utilize Geneva-style or hunter-style crystal. As they are approximately 0.4mm to 0.5mm thick, they often wind up being pretty fragile. For open-faced watches, they feature an exposed dial and are cover-less. The crystal on these watches also feature a beveled outer edge, for a better definition. The thickness of these watches can go up to 2.5mm.
