My B-Day Present

Recommended Posts

I actually received this in November for my b-day in October, It was from the National Geographic International store and was made in Scotland....this is all I know. It fits very well into the little pocket in my Wyvern as I have yet to get a proper waistcoat.

Both sides open so a pic ( of my Wee Bonny Rayne ) can be put in the other side.

It is a winder, and holds great time for a long period before it is time to be rewound.

I would like to score an antique chain for it and I am still looking.

IMHO, NOTHING like a "Pocket Watch" ( Winder) in the world. That is a GREAT "Present"

I have been carrying a pocket watch for years 1 battery powered for everyday wear that I carry in the front pocket of my night stalker and a windup that belonged to my Great-Grandfather on my mother's side for more formal or special family occasions. It will grow on you after a while. And I agre with Puffer "NOTHING like a "Pocket Watch" ( Winder) in the world"

OH YEAH!!

I have a bit of an addiction to watches, and that includes pocket watches.

That one is a beauty brother.
