Pocket watches today are more advanced than the pocket watches of the past, in both design and craftsmanship. Pocket watches remain symbols of style and elegance. This pocket watches is a vintage style with an art deco pattern on the case and two personalized silver plated letter charms perfect for those who want to feel the grandeur of the old world.

A functional reversible skeleton movement pocket watch shows the gears in motion. Top cover flips open to view to black dial with copper roman numbers. This is a mechanical style watch that keeps accurate time and will need to be wound but does not require batteries (Eco friendly). We make a traditional pocket watch chain, 14.5" including the watch clip and pocket/button hook using strong black steel curb chain. I can make this watch into a necklace for an upgrade cost of $4-$6 depending on the chain style and length, convo me with request for quote.

***********************************************
Setting the time
You will need to grasp the crown (button at the top) tightly and pull. When you hear a click you will be able to turn the crown/button to set the time. Once you have set the time you will need to press the button firmly back towards the watch until you feel or hear a click.

Winding your pocket watch
You may wind your watch fully every day of use. Turn the winding crown (same button you set the time with) approximately 15 turns clockwise. Stop BEFORE you feel resistance. The mainspring is made to wind up all the way once a day. Once you finish winding the watch you will need to rock the watch back and forth to activate it. Most watches will run 26-30 hours on a full winding, but there can be exceptions.

* There are two reasons often given for this tradition. The first (and likely apocryphal) is that "IV" is a representation for "Ivpiter", or Jupiter, the supreme Roman god, and that people were afraid to invoke his name on timepieces.

The real reason is aesthetics: watchmakers want to keep an approximate vertical symmetry in symbol width, and "IIII" is at better parity with "VIII" than "IV".

As for "correctness" of IV versus IIII, Roman numerals weren't standardized until long after the ancient Romans. Use of forms like "IIII" and "IIX" (for 8) and "IC" (for 99) was fairly common and, at times, preferred. It's a m
Locate the mainspring. It is between the '10' and the face center on a pocket watch, and between the "1" and the face center on a wrist watch. When loose the coils are relaxed into their outer area. At about 10 twists you will still see space between the coils. At 15 twists or less it is fully wound but you need to STOP while you can see slight space in the coil and before you feel resistance, so that the mainspring will not become frozen due to winding it too tight. When over wound the mainspring is in a tight knot at its center. Sometimes you can get an over wound watch to loosen up by giving it several good shakes. You grasp the watch firmly (so as not to drop it) and 'snap' it several times.
