Married watch
on: December 11, 2019, 04:22:18 PM
I think I have found my next watch...a married watch.
Didn’t know about them untill I stumbled across them doing some research. A married watch is a pocket watch movement put into a case to be worn as a wrist watch. It is giving a pocket watch a new life.
So....any married watch owners out there??? Show them if you got them! Thanks

in the 80s and 90s we hat the Pop Swatch, which was quite popular (in addition to pocket-/wrist- watch, there was also desk-stands and a wall mounts for them)... other than that, I have never seen one.

It wouldn't be the internet without people complaining.

I have a Russian watch that uses a pocket watch movement, but it came from factory like that.

Thanks!

Had to go out this evening and decided to put it on because of this thread.

The previous pic was from an eBay listing. This one was made by myself :D

The awesome backside, revealing the pocket watch movement:

Nick, mate... I hate to break it to you but that watch you have there... that's obviously a fake "made in China" replica.  I mean, if you look real hard you can just see the battery underneath the fake movement...

You know what?

Since I have a bit of a weak spot for fake "battery-powered-automatics" like that, I'll take it of your hands, okay?  How about a trade, I've got a nice NIB Victorinox Pioneer over here.  I know it has a higher value than that watch, but hey, I'm just a good guy I guess...

Just send me a pm okay  :pok:.

And since it's a pocket watch movement, this one is a hand wind :D
