Perpetual..

We will switch it up tonight, and start off on a different foot. I am very intrigued by the designs of watches, pocket-watches, anything time related. It really is an amazing gift from physics. Nice time pieces that have been around since the 1800's in mint condition are super expensive. Getting a nice pocket-watch is an achievement in my book. I will post one of my favorite watch designers.

"Patek Philippe Pocket Watch 18k



This watch was created in 1891, what a marvel! Til' tomorrow! -Shadow

I have a Geneva pocket watch. I love it. Came with a leather belt strap case too. My son's mother's mother gave it to me.

I love these kind of watches, I want to learn more about them so thanks for this.

Whoa, these are watches I usually see in movies. I do think it has some kind of status to wear a pocket watch instead of a watch on your wrist.

Too bad they're so ridiciously expensive.

A lot of the older day things(such as clocks) are always a lot better than todays cheap modern hunks of crap. These are a great example

I had a pocket watch once. It was cheaply made but I loved it. You have inspired me to go get another one!

I've never really been in to watches, might be why I'm generally late for everything! This looks pretty nice though.
