    I very rarely see any posts about pocket watches witch is a real shame as pocket watches hold so much history and tradition about them. I love the beauty and the sound that a pocket watch makes, plus you just cant get anymore classy then when u were one with a suit.
    here are my two pocket watches

    This is not an "Uncles" watch post!!!! :D

    Last Saturday I was at a friends house attending a Burn's supper. We got talking and he showed me a couple of pocket watches he had lying around that belonged to his late father. As he knew I was interested in watches, he gave them to me to see if I could dig out more information. I'll be asking on more specialise fora, but here they are for your perusal.

    A UK military Rolex and 9k Waltham

    P.S. both seem to be runners and any spots seen on the dials in the photos is due to a dirty phone camera lens. They appear to be pristine.

    @tdn-dk is a tough act to follow but here are two of my favorites. I have a particular fondness for steel pocket watches. I am interested to see what @Tony C. has in this department.

    One of my favourite Omegas. This, a Louis Brandt CCR from circa 1905. Railroad approved in Canada. I have two of these. Louis Brandt founded the company that became Omega.

    Lots of Waltham information here:

    http://www.pocketwatchrepair.com/histories/waltham.html

    The movement in yours is either an 1899 or 1908 model. Lots of these exported to England to be cased in English cases. Dennison was an ex-pat American who settled in England in the early day of the company that founded Waltham. One prior name of Waltham (of which there were many) was Dennison, Howard, and Davis. Dennison was quite the entrepreneur. The watch case business was only one of his English enterprises.
