Pocket watches, that is They're Taking Over!.  They now outnumber the wrist variety in my VC cabinet...

Hey Alex, that's a great "digital" watch from IWC .  Your V&C has a fantastic quality 21 jewel movement.  Is the case 45mm or thereabouts?
Some set the bar awfully high and never reach it...

Try it, you'll like it!

I swear, once you handle a pocket watch you will discover a whole new experience .  Better get 'em fast though...the value of scrap gold is sending many noble watches to the furnaces .
OMG, is everyone on holidays??

Doc and Dan must be locked up in a room somewhere to stop them from posting about their pocket watches .  Well maybe a few "lurkers" could contribute

Sorry my friend,

Work has been crazy, I went to HK for the Hour Loung Dinner last night and more unfortunately for this thread: My pocket watches aren't with me, they're home in the U.S. right now - so I don't have any new scans to share. I am currently looking for a simple, minute-repeater, pocketwatch.  Made by VC of course.  This is the only thing on my buy list right now. Over the past week I was talking to a dealer in London about a 1910 LeCoultre MR pocket watch (I know, I know...almost blasphemy ) that was very reasonably priced...alas it wasn't what I expected it to be. So the search continues. Best Regards, Dan
No Blasphemy!

Hey Dan, I look forward to hearing more about the HK dinner .  Also nice to know about your future plans regarding PW's.  IMHO, looking at other top-end makers isn't blasphemy at all, rather a natural extension of our hobby.  Of course, V&C has a special place, but there are other worthy labels.  This topic is dear to me because I have a special piece which isn't V&C but very much part of the V&C story...more to come in a few weeks .  BTW, I'm away for the next week so I'll apologize in advance if I miss other interesting threads.  It's time for a psychic recharge at a little cabin in the woods.
