    Your Vintage Pocket Pieces!

    Post your vintage pocket watches here with a little but about them!

    I have three solid runners that keep good time, but the most important of them is the Waltham. It has been in the family since new and passed down the line, and I am the fifth in that line. It's really what started my interest in older pocket watches, and will be passed on someday

    The others were yardsale/eBay acquisitions, but after a quick cleaning were running strong.

    When it's time to dress fancy I take Empire with me as the Waltham means too much and stays under a glass display bubble.

    That's a nice batch of watches! I catch-and-release pocket watches. I have probably owned 40 or 50, but I have kept only a few.

    My favorite is a Waltham 1883 that belonged to my grandfather and that got me into watchmaking. The one I carry the most is an Illinois Bunn Special.

    There is something more to the art of watchmaking and repairing than that of merely assembling a watch and making it 'tick.'

    This watch was from my grandfather.
    If he were alive he would be about 110 years old.

    That's a super clean watch for its age. Even the porcelain face looks to be in good shape.

    I'll open it up and take some pics when I get home a little later. This one unfortunately does have a pockmark in the porcelain right at the 11 marker.
