Excellent choice!

OK, maybe I'm biased just a little bit.

This is my great-grandfather's leather letter folder. My hand is showing with one of the letters that he wrote to his son, who was my grandfather in 1934. I have the same name - as shown in the letter and on the envelope. We are fond of our heritage and tradition. My first name has been the dominant family name for us over 500 years. The watch is my Omega Seamaster Calendar which is what I wear every day. It still keeps reasonable time and only gets a service every three years or so. The pen is a Parker with no. 5 stamped on the nib. It is one of my daily writers that I carry to work and back.

My every day carry is a bit utilitarian. I have a Vanishing Point, a Pelikan M200 & a Phileas, but the Safari is by far my favorite, with its 1.1mm nib. The Mallard watch I purchased at a local jeweler. And my Spyderco Dragonfly for opening packages and peeling fruit. I'm really quite harmless.

How great to see someone using a pocket watch. It's a shame really that they are no longer as popular as they used to be. It would be irresistible to see a modern, not limited edition, pocket watch from Omega again.

Hello Ian,

 

The watch, bracelet and FPs are quite opulent. Only a 'demonstrator' is lacking :roflmho:

 

With love,

Hello all,

 

I considered the purchase of a watch (see first photo via my link) of which only seven were produced. Seven is my lucky number! Unfortunately I was just to late :ltcapd: Just kidding. So, I bought another one see photo 2. I already had a classic watch with a leather strap. Before this simple leather strap there were quite a few croco straps, but they all broke.

I have added some more photos :roflmho:

 

With love,

goldenkrishna

I agree. I only ever wear a pocket watch- daily. I haven't worn a wristwatch for many many years. I love the "style" that a pocket watch conveys! I would love to have an antique railroad era Elgin, Waltham, or Hamilton with a nice hunter case, but I don't know if they even had hunter or half hunter cases for those watches usually. Those suckers are BIG too!

Although there was some variation among the railroads, one general requirement for a "railroad watch" was that it be an open-faced watch - so no hunter cases. I am sure, however, a few people put railroad quality movements in hunter cases, so you might be able to find one - even if not historically correct.
