I searched and came up with nothing so I decided to start a pocket watch thread. I'm sure that some of you have some interesting pieces out there.

Here's mine. It's a Molnjia (Lightning bolt in Russian). The approximate manufactured date is 1931 from what I was told. It survived WWII in my great grandfathers pocket as he was a soldier.

It's got a Rolex movement and still works like new. I'll take some more pics of it when I have a chance.

Looks good Pan. Been meaning to pick one up. Hard to find mid-priced new pocket watches. Seems like most of the best ones are all vintage.

Good example. Not many better than Ball for a pocketwatch. Not sure if you can get classier than a pocket watch.

Only 11 Mill for this Patek Supercomplication

I used to have an elgin like this one when i was younger. I got it in an estate sale in a tool box full of old tools. I used to collect tools. I live about 10 miles not even from the old factory, so its pretty common to get these in estate sales.

but this is what it looked like

I am a lover of pocket and rail watches.

I've only got a couple, but I love them.
Here is my most recent purchase...a Hamilton rail

^ I was just about to post this one!

I've been too busy to take a picture of the movement so I just stole some pictures of the interwebs.

Here's the movement in the watch posted above:

I love RM but I'm not a huge fan of their "pocket watch".

I'm bored, maybe I'll charge up my camera and take some shots. Though getting them online would be impossible til the net comes back up (eff you AGAIN Comcast)
