Hi, I'm Rik and I've just popped over from the Breitling forum to tap into your knowledge please.
Someone at work wants to buy her husband a pocket watch and asked me what I know about pocket watches . . . which is just about nothing!
She wants a solid gold one (not plated or rolled), 'half-hunter' (small window in the top cover?) and has narrowed the brands down to J W Benson and Waltham after some research on the net.
Any comments? Where would be the best place to look/buy? (I'm naturally suspicious of the bay but I think she's happy to use it) Are we talking new or used (I don't even know if the brands are still active, off to Google in a second! ) and what sort of price ranges are we looking at?
ANY help would be appreciated, I'm starting from square zero here!
