The pocket watch shop
Restoration of vintage pocket watches
The watches you find in this shop are all carefully restored, adjusted and tested.
The watches are not only cleaned and oiled. Every part is checked carefully. Worn out
parts are replaced and the watches are adjusted to make sure they work reliably.
You will not only get a vintage watch that is good for occasional use but one
that you can trust every day.
We test our products
The watches are not only tested electronically on a modern watch timing machine but we
do actually use the watches for at least one week to ensure that there is no hidden defect.
This multilevel approach of final visual inspection, electronic testing and use of the watch
under real world conditions ensures that those watches are of really high quality.
Why pocket watches?
Almost all reliably working watches were pocket watches a century ago.
The machinery and technology did not exist to make smaller and
lightweight wrist watches that would keep time as good as bigger pocket
watches. Everybody who wanted a real watch had a pocket watch. Today
wrist watches are more common and wrist watches double as jewelry.
Pocket watches have however still a place and there are some very good
reason for using a pocket watch:
You will for sure have your own reasons otherwise you would not be on
- your arm is free and nothing obstructs your movement
- wrist watches work well in an office environment but get easily
damaged or scratched elsewhere
- a pocket watch is something special and not everybody has one
- vintage pocket watches were designed with reliability and longevity in
mind. This is very different from most mass market watches made today.
It's nice to have a timepiece that is already several decades old and
will live for many more decades.
We just love pocket watches.
