As you can see, I just joined this forum. I am certainly far from a watch collector (my own watch is a kid's Timex with a stretchy band...), but I'm on a very specific mission.
At a museum recently, my boyfriend and I saw an absolutely amazing pocket watch with a 24 hour dial among the museum's large collection. We both fell in love with the idea of such a pocket watch, and so begun my secretive internet search.
So far, I've found a modern 24 hour Russian pocket watch, but I was really hoping for something truly antique. As far as 24 hour pocket watches are concerned, how should I begin my search? I'm in no rush, although my budget isn't gigantic ($100-$200 for a watch in working condition that keep acceptable time for daily use).
Can someone give me a list of specific makes that correspond with 24 hour pocket watches to make my search easier? Anything would be appreciated.
I'm sorry if this is a duplicate thread from the past, but I didn't find anything after searching.
Note: I also posted this under the 24 hour forum. I'm not sure where it fit best. Thanks.
