    Daily might be a little stretch, but I use them at least weekly, and on occassions.

    I just wind mine up now and then. Sometimes I sometimes place it in the bedroom to hear it in the background, helps me sleep

    More in the winter, because long sleeves make checking the time actually easier witha pocketwatch.

    I use a pocketwatch every day. I've got one sitting right next to me as a type this. I refuse to spend hundreds of dollars on a nice watch if all it does is hide in a glass case year after year.

    Waistcoat season is not yet over here in Perth, so yes, I wear a pocket watch most days.

    Today it is a recently made Molnija 'Order of the Great Patriotic War'.


    Yesterday was an unsigned 1920s piece in a gold case (belonged to my grandfather).


    I have a 1970s Meihualu that I sometimes wear with jeans (after all, that's what the little pocket is for).


    And then there is this 1985 Hong Kong piece; the first new watch I ever bought

    It has a Poljot wristwatch movement. Getting this watch serviced some years ago was what got me interested in watches. At that time I had been using a quartz pocket watch for many years.

    I have some 19th century pieces in need of serious work, but they're unlikely to be fixed any time soon.

    I use not every day nor once a week.

    I use it for... at least twice a month, or depending what i'm wearing.

    I don't like using it with jeans

    Here's mine
