Before I arrived at Museum I was 100% wristwatch man. Then I realize 'genesis' of watch is pocket watch.

Now I study both, have 3 pocket watches (wear 1 + a wristwatch) and I am looking to own my first early fusee.

Go figure

Doubt they'd sell well judging by the lack of pocket watches I see, and the average pocket watch wouldn't add much value to some jeans out there nowadays.

Got a pretty nice one myself now.... if I ever get it back from repair.

my soon to be 5 year old no longer believes watches are powered by mice. he owns 3 watches currently.

I didn't own 3 watches till I was in my 30s.
