    As I grow more passionate of Universal watches in general, I realise a deep lack of info surrounding the pocket watch sphere which imho is very overlooked and rare. I would love for this thread to become a useful basis for people to share and confront their universal pocket watches.

    I start by sharing my collection.

    Firstly I share my time only, stainless steel, bauhaus design Universal. It is gorgeous design and simplicity.
    It is super clean example but unfortunately could not open it so no movement pictures.

    Second is my very early chronology with immaculate multi scale dial and gorgeous sterling case. Again I apologise for the lack of movement pics but couldn't open it. 2016-11-23 20.33.17.jpg 2016-11-23 20.34.57.jpg 2016-11-23 20.39.07.jpg


    Last is my Contax. Unfortunately I didn't take pics of casebook or movement, will attach in the future!

    I hope you guys enjoy and share your own pocket watches.

    All the best,

    Luc

    Fabulous, thanks.
    This is the only UG pocket watch I've owned to date. I think it's one of the more common models but still striking in its simplicity.

    Thanks for sharing. I find it beautiful, especially the long markers. So simple but perfect. Congrats.

    Here's a gold Compax for the thread. I particularly dig the blue tachy scale and its silvered track

    Unfortunately my passion for mechanical watches didn't develop until several years after my wedding (I'm not sure I had much of a budget back then) but I think that's a fabulous idea.

    One another to add very cool from Instagram, courtesy of user @balthasardepury. The story goes that it was gifted to a railway superior who asked for the case to be rail track inspired. Awesome backside too! Love this see through ones so much!!
