Some stunning pocket watches seen over the weekend, at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.

Very cool. Looks like quite a history of watches.

Sadly, I couldn't look at them for long, as I was there with my 9, 6 and 2.5 yr old children, who were desperate to see the Egyptian mummies and giggle at naked Greek statues, not a load of old watches!!! Grr

That is impressive.
There is a museum here in Pennsylvania called the National Watch and Clock museum. Not far from where Hamilton was.
They have impressive watches. There was a watchmaker desk set up with vintage tools. I wish I could have sat there and taken apart some of the ones I found fascinating.
Definitely worth the trip. I plan to go again.
