I’ve picked up a new hobby in vintage and timepieces of which I shared my Tissot and Omega watches already some time back. But what would any collection (even a small one) be without a pocket watch.Yet, a pocket watch. Timepiece that preceded the now popular wrist watch. The practicality of wrist watch slowly but surely lead to reduction of pocket watches in the market. Bargue would argue that a good pocket watch still has that style value unmatched by modern watches. Or at least most of them. Especially when it comes to wearing a three piece suit.
My pocket watch is branded Elge and is actually older than any other watch I own. I am not sure how old or don’t even know much about the watch or brand, but one. Ting I knowit’s that it works likea brand new watch. I somehow thought that the watch was manual, but it’s actually automatic and keeps perfect time. I wonder how to go about servicing this antique watch though. But that I only need to worry once thewatch stops. If you know anything about the brand or the watch, feel free to drop me a line or comment, would be interesting to know more about it.
