Ways to Wear a Pocket Watch:
Pocket watches--those charming anachronisms found in antique stores--date to the early 16th century, according to Robert Thatcher's "Brief History of the Pocket Watch." As wrist watches became popular, the more high-maintenance pocket watch faded from mainstream fashion. For those who want a retro touch for their wardrobe, there is a still a world of stunning pocket watches and accessories. With a little guidance, men and women can flaunt this standout style
Pocket Watches and Accessories:
- Pocket watches come in a huge array of styles and finishes. Many pocket watches have a closed case that flips open with a button; others have an openwork case that lets the crystal of the watch show through. Depending on the retailer, these watches come in gold, platinum, silver, brass and a black plate finish
- Most pocket watches come with a chain that ends in a fob (a dangling coin or medal sometimes bearing the insignia of a fraternal organization, corporation or the armed forces) or a slide clip to attach to a suit or vest button
- If the watch is an open-case type, meaning the crystal isn't covered, protect it with a leather pocket case. These have a loop on the back to slide onto a belt and wear at the waist
- There are three basic ways for men to wear a pocket watch. The easiest and most traditional way is with a vest. Clip one end of the chain around the middle button of the vest, button it and put the watch in the vest pocket
- If wearing a traditional men's suit sans vest, you may clip it to the middle button of the suit and put the watch inside the suit's inner breast pocket. If wearing jeans or chinos with an extra watch pocket (the small one inside the large front pocket), clip it to the belt loop and put the watch in the watch pocket. Jeans and chinos also look dapper with a leather pocket case attached to the belt
A Woman's Way:
- With the return of vests, structured suits and ruffled blouses with pencil skirts, the pocket watch is natural way to accessorize. Wear a long chain and fob as a belt for a tailored skirt. Tuck a traditional chain and fob into a vest pocket over trousers. Try wearing a swivel chain pocket watch, with a long doubled chain, as a necklace with a tailored suit. The addition of the masculine pocket watch to subtly feminine clothes adds a sexy edge to your style
How to Care for Pocket Watches?
Pocket watches offer a completely different look than your standard wristwatch. They have class and elegance, and are generally meant to be treated more delicately than wristwatches. There are myriad ways in which your pocket watch may get scratched, damaged or broken. Fortunately, there is a list of rules that will help prevent you from inadvertantly damaging your pocket watch
- Remove any extraneous objects from the pocket in which you are carrying the watch. An item such as a set of keys or a handful of change will scratch the surface of the pocket watch, and may even crack the crystal covering the face of the watch
- Keep your pocket watch away from water. A bit of water getting splashed on the watch is inevitable at some point, but avoid immersing it in water
- Clean your pocket watch with a soft cloth on a regular basis. You can get a soft cloth at your local eyeglass store -- it's the same cloth with which you can clean your glasses without damaging or scratching them
- Avoid using harsh cleaners on your watch. In general, even if the watch is fashioned out of sterling silver, the manufacturer will protect the watch with a finish and coating of lacquer, so harsh cleaners are not necessary and may, in fact, damage the watch
How to Clean Pocket Watches?
Pocket watches have been used for centuries as a timepiece for men. Many vintage pocket watches have been handed down from generation to generation. Taking proper care of your pocket watch requires attention to cleaning both inside and outside. Caring for the outside of your watch is a daily matter. Some men's pants and coveralls have watch pockets on the right. Their purpose is to protect the watch from being scraped and scarred by change or other objects inside the regular pocket. Cleaning the inside mechanism requires a delicate touch and must be handled with the proper tools and cleaning solutions
Prepare to Clean Your Pocket Watch:
- Assemble all watch cleaning tools and equipment. Specialized tools are required for disassembling the tiny parts of a watch
- Lay out lint-free absorbent paper. As the watch mechanisms are disassembled and cleaned, it is important to prevent the parts from picking up debris from your work surface
- Open the back of the watch. Insert a fingernail or case knife in the lip of the back and pry the case apart
Let Down the Mainspring:
- Locate the metal stopper. Wind the watch a couple turns and listen for the click. The clicking sound is made by the metal stopper as it passes the gear
- Hold the winding stem firmly and wind slightly past the gear
- Press against the metal stopper lightly with your wooden peg, moving it out of the way of the ratchet wheel
- Holding the metal stopper out of the way of the gears and rachet wheel, slowly release the winder and allow the mainspring to totally unwind
Remove the Watch Mechanisms from the Case:
- Pull the winding stem out until it clicks. Remove the bezel, the ring that holds the crystal in place
- Remove the crystal from the face of the watch
- Lift the watch mechanisms out of the case
Clean and Oil Your Pocket Watch Parts:
- Disassemble all parts and mechanisms of your pocket watch. Keep parts for each assembly unit separate for ease in assembling parts after cleaning and oiling
- Clean all parts except the mainspring by soaking in naptha or watch-cleaning solution. Brush with a small brush to remove all dirt and debris from tiny crevices. Lay cleaned parts on lint-free paper to dry. Allow to dry
- Oil the moving parts of the watch. Jewels are used as pivots in the gears. Locate the jewels and place a tiny drop of oil in each recess, using special watchmaker's oil and oiler. The oiler is a tiny wire designed to deliver a minuscule amount of oil to prevent over oiling

- Other Thoughts: I purchased this mechanical pocket watch for my friend as a Christmas present. The price is reasonable (after discount) and the quality is not bad too. A high rating will be given if the cover can be opened in a wider angle.

- Other Thoughts: It's really cool to watch all the mechanisms and gears working on the inside of the watch. Overall, it's sleek, kind of minimalist, and very practical. No fancy gizmos or batteries or lights or alarms, etc. here. Just a good all around pocket watch.

- Other Thoughts: This was purchased as a gift for a friend. Very beautiful, clean lines. Simple and elegant. Also got it engraved. Just to let you know: You can have both of the outsides of the watch engraved but the inside of the watch cannot be engraved only because it has a beautiful engraved pattern. Could put a picture in it. Very nice for the price.

- Other Thoughts: This reasonably priced mechanical pocket watch arrived just before Xmas. I'm very pleased with it's overall quality. I has a nice "heft" and the details are very nice. I bought it as a present for a 20-year-old after checking out all the pocket watches I could find in our local shopping mall. Nothing I saw while shopping came close to quality of this watch even at twice the price.

- Other Thoughts: The only problem I have had is that sometimes the clip on the end of the chain gets caught on the watch crown and you have to play with it a little to pull it off before you can press the button on the crown to open the cover. But that doesn't happen very often.

- Other Thoughts: This is a great copper watch, it functions well and looks very stylish. There are big Roman Numerals on the watch face and each second has a tick mark. Because of the skeleton design you can see the inner moving parts of the watch. I am glad I got it, and the company selling this watch on Dinodirect was very easy to deal with, the watch arrived very quickly.

- Other Thoughts: I bought two of these cheap pocket watches for gifts, and am very happy with them. Solid construction, nice brushed metal exterior, and a very cool watch face design. I'm sure there are more elegant watches out there, but for the price, it would be hard to beat this one.
