Vintage Pocket Watch ~ Steampunk & Classic Art Nouveau style all rolled into one beautiful Pocket Watch

❖ Reduced price for minor blemishes - a few light scratches on the front of the case..
❖ Returns within 14 days for functional defects only - buyer pays return postage & insurance.
❖ Please choose chain Style and Clothing Attachment from the drop down menus

❖ I have one of these with very minor blemishes on the front of the cases. You might barely notice them, and they are the type of blemishes that may come with normal wear. Still I don't feel I can sell them at full price. So if you have been thinking about a Pocket Watch and don't need it to be perfect, this is a good opportunity to try one out. They are all working fine.
❖ I am offering this one at clearance price with the factory supplied chain and findings (wire belt clip and watch clasp). For a bit more, you can have a handmade chain, with your choice of Clothing Attachment, durable solid brass jump rings, and the classic smooth watch hook. Please make your choices from the drop down menu.
❖ Personalize your gift watch with a classic Monogram Initial Fob. For less than the price of engraving, it lends an individualized touch to your gift that lasts beyond your special day. The back of the initial fobs is smooth, and can be engraved with a date or short message if you choose, [I do not offer engraving services, but your local jewelry store likely does.]

~ ❖ Watch details ❖ ~
❖ Black Filigree covers the face of this sleek, black Art Nouveau style pocket watch. The hole in the center of the filigree allows you to tell the time without having to open the front cover.
❖ ~ The case measures 1.75" (45 mm) in diameter.
❖ ~ Inside, classic white Fleur de Lis hands contrast against a black background, with time indicated for the hour by *SILVER* metallic Roman Numerals, all making this watch easy to read.
❖ ~ The working mechanism of the clock is partially visible at the center of the face and also on the back of the watch, lending a modern Steampunk feel.
~ ❖ Chain ❖ ~
❖ Your choice of Chain:
~ Factory chain & findings
You may choose the FACTORY supplied chain & findings at a reduced price. If you choose the Factory Chain, you will *automatically* get the factory findings [wire belt clip and jump rings], even if you choose a Lobster Clasp. Please make the FACTORY Findings choice from both the CHAIN and the CLOTHING ATTACHMENT Menus.
❖ Handmade Chain
✥ To get the optional Clasps with better quality findings, you must select a different CHAIN STYLE option.
~ Black or Silver Curb Link plated Steel chain [third thumbnail photo] or
~ Black plated Steel Double Rope Link Chain
❖ handmade Chains are attached with heavy gauge twisted wire, solid brass jump rings
❖ Your choice of Clothing Attachment:
~ a large Lobster or Oval Clasp that hooks onto a belt loop or even through a buttonhole on a vest pocket
~ or a Belt Clip that slips over the side of a pocket, waistband or belt
✥ Any one of these holds the watch safely in place and protects it from mishaps that might send it falling to the ground.

✥ Generally I do not recommend the Factory Findings. This is usually your only option of chain with most watches you see here on Easy. The watch hook is flattened steel wire, with sharp edges that can catch on your clothing. The jump rings are not as strong and will likely not stand up to normal use and wear. While other shops may offer clasp options, they charge $10+ for them. I offer better quality findings at a price that just covers the materials.
✥ Please make your choices of Chain and Clothing Attachment from the drop down menu near the green *Add to Cart* bar.

❖ All watches come gift boxed, with instructions on care and use
❖ Each watch is checked before shipping to make sure it opens and closes properly, and keeps time accurately. After a full winding, you can expect this watch to keep accurate time for 24 - 36 hours. Please ollow the instructions carefully. Take care not to wind too hard, or you can break the mainspring on the watch.

I took one of these watches in to my local Pocket watch repair man and general watch expert.
He said that the working mechanism on this watch is a Swiss watch movement (design), made and assembled in China. This was supported by my own experience, in that my first shipment of these watches was actually shipped from Switzerland.

✥I have had a few questions, some my own, about the crystal that covers the face of this watch.
✥The crystal is a "mineral acrylic" crystal.
This is not simple plastic, but more like the Polycarbonates that are used in eyeglass lens. Just as eyeglass makers have found more benefit to using acrylics, so have watch makers.

Some preliminary research I found on this:
✥ Acrylic watch crystal is more durable than glass. It requires a very strong and a sharp shock to break. It may be more sensitive to scratches, but they can be polished out by hand with any kind of "Brasso".
(I have not tried this myself, but I do have a scratched one that I will experiment on.)
✥ Acrylic crystals are mounted on pilot and military watches, even on the most prestigious ones like the Omega Speedmaster (crystal called "Hesalite" by Omega) that went on the moon...and still mounted today on the brand-new one."
