Pocket Watch

A pocket watch is usually carried in a waistcoat or in a pocket of a jacket and the watch hangs at the end of a chain. Unlike a wrist watch which is worn on the wrist and very visible, the pocket watch is almost always out of sight. The chains attached to pocket watches helps secure the watches to the loop of the belt, lapel, waistcoat and this prevents them from falling or being dropped. Commonly seen on pocket watches are fasteners designed specifically to be put through buttonholes. They are typically worn in a waistcoat or jacket instead of attached to an item of clothing to be seen. You can find pocket watches made with different metals such as gold, silver or copper, etc. Solid gold plated pocket watches are priceless since the possibility that the watch has a lot of gold karats is very high. This makes such gold plated pocket watches very expensive and not common. Normally the price of a pocket watch depends mainly on the type of metal used to produce it. The more expensive metals mean the watch will cost more than if a less expensive metal is used. In recent times, producers of pocket watches have moved from using solid metals to using malleable products to make them easily accessible as well as long-lasting. Products such as plastics have become the commonly used materials used in producing the casing of pocket metals so that the can be made in different colors and designs that are eye-catching. Other products such as rubber and glass are mixed together to give a shiny looking pocket watch casing. For more shiny looking pocket watches, they are being in made in metals that are cheaper but look very shiny and lovely and yet don’t need a lot of special care to keep them looking shiny. For special occasions, you can have your pocket watch customized for your loved one. Either has the names of your loved one engraved on them or special words written for your loved one. The pocket watches can be made in the shapes of pets such as cats, parrots, dogs, etc. and given out as gifts on special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries, etc.

History of pocket watches

The existence of pocket watches goes back to the sixteenth century when it was very popular until after the world war one when the wristwatch was introduced. In the sixteenth century before after the first world war when wristwatches were introduced, trench watches were introduced but were mostly used by the military. During those times the pocket watch was a sign of wealth and so anyone who owned a pocket watch was very much respected. The watches in that era were mainly made with very expensive metals and so was not easily affordable by the lower class citizens. For more decorative effects devices such as cigar cutters, watch winding key or vesta cases are attached to the pocket watches to give them exotic look. Another trend was pocket watch tattoos which became quite popular because it symbolizes the importance of time and carries a lot of meaning for those who go for it. The trick to the tattoo is to leave the time on a time of an anniversary, a birthdate, or even in memory of a loved one who you lost. The inventor of watches is known as Peter Heinlein but sometimes spelled as Henle or Hele but refers to the same person. Born in 1485 till August 1542, Heinlein was from Nuremberg, Germany he trained as a clockmaker and a locksmith. The watches, in the beginning, were made in small sizes and used as pendants for necklaces or chains around the neck.
His invention of a pocket watch in 1524 however, made him more popular as this invention spread across Europe very fast during the sixteenth century. To be recognized in society as someone with a class or as a gentleman you had to own a pocket watch. Due to its importance pocket watches were passed on from generation to generation and treasured especially when the pocket watch was made of platinum or gold. For safety and comfort, small pockets were made in jackets to accommodate the watches because of their value. To show wealth and class men in the sixteenth century had their pocket watches customized to feel more important. The metal used to produce your watch and style of your pocket watch showed your class in society. Those considered to be of ‘lower class’ also owned pocket watches which might have been passed on from generations, the difference is that their watches were made of fewer quality metals such as bronze or silver. Traditionally the name was given to the see-through cover part of the watch where the dial is crystal because of the glass cover.
