This is my second day with the watch. It was my first pocket watch purchase. I have done lots of research on which pocket watch to buy on amazon. Charles Hubert seemed to be the best quality for the least amount of money. What really sealed the deal was when amazon dropped the price from $110 to $79. I really don't think you can find a watch THIS nice for $79. It has a good weight to it. It is very sturdy with a sturdy chain. It came in a very fancy box and the watch was inside a silk pouch with drawstrings. It came with winding instructions. When I opened it, I attached the chain, wound up the watch (about 30-40 turns) until I felt the least bit of resistance. It immediately started ticking. I pulled the crown, set the time, and it has kept perfect time ever since. It was still ticking this morning (the second day) and I wound it up all the way again. I love the sound of the ticking. It isn't TOO loud, but you can hear it when you hold it to your ear, and sometimes in an absolutely...
Let me begin by saying that the product photos on Amazon (which appear devoid of any ambient lighting) do not even begin to capture the beauty of this pocket watch. The actual watch has a very pronounced reflective mirror finish which looks absolutely gorgeous in person. The overall construction is very solid and has a good weight to it. It is a tad thicker and heavier than your average pocket watch, but should still easily fit into your jean's watch pocket. Movement is very smooth, and so far it has kept time perfectly. The cover and dial windows appear to be made of some sort of glass rather than cheap plastic, which is a plus.
I very much enjoy the overall aesthetic and design. While the face sports roman numerals, the chrome hints and the large, arrow-shaped dials create a very classy, modern look that is great for any occasion. While handy for carrying a photograph around with you, I personally like to keep the window clear as it creates a nice "frame" for the face of...
This is my first pocket watch and I have to say I absolutely love it!
First of all, this watch is beautifully made. It's a bit smaller and thicker than other pocket watches I have seen, yet it is still substantial.
The window/frame is very well done - the latch for the cover is well-made and works exceptionally well. Given that I am not placing a photo in the frame at this time, I removed the inner window (a simple twist and it comes out) to prevent rattling from an empty frame.
I certainly enjoy viewing the inner workings of the watch from both front and back.
The ability to stand the watch up and use it as a sort of desk clock is nice, however I don't really see the point myself. It's not really necessary in my mind. The stand part is well made and solid - just like the entire watch - it has a very nice solid feel overall.
Winding is simple - and the side button to open the case prevents accidental opening.
