When it comes to grand examples of tactile art, none is more charming than a vintage pocket watch. They are truly time machines, whether highly jeweled railroad-grade watches or solid gold hunter-case models worn with opulent fobs and chains. Pocket watches have been relied-upon to get soldiers to battle and ships to port. They have marked great events and have been presented to heroes. Cowboys, film legends, kings, grandfathers and grandmothers who have reveled in better days have been accompanied by their trusted timepiece. Today, men are carrying pocket watches as a statement of elegance, a connection to the Golden Age of fashion and timekeeping.
