Hi folks, This week I bought my forst pocket watches. I already have an extensive collection of vintage wrist watches now i wanted pocket watches. Now i have 6 in the post on the way to me so i started thinking about how i was going to display them.
I already have lots of display stands for wrist watches but nothing for pocket watches. So i started looking around...... I found lots of over priced stands that held 1 pocket watch made from wood and or brass. But since i have multiple pocket watches on the way how could i display them all. There seem to be no stands available to hold more than 1 watch.
Enter a little kiwi ingenuity and some tools and i found the answer.
i went to the local hardware store and bought some Jarrah timber some screws and some gold tone hooks.
The result is a stand that will hold 9 pocket watches and look fantabulous.
I am not going to profess to be a carpenter but i have some basic skills to put some bits of wood together.
I even thought there might be a market for this sort of thing.
Look at the pics and tell me what you think.
