Pocket watches date back to the advent of the first clocks and were the only portable timepieces worn by gentlemen the world over. Because of their increasing popularity, we at Trendhim have chosen to offer a wide range of models like classic gold and silver as well different patterns and other rustic features. You really have to see how wonderful they are!
We offer gold platted pocket watches. This keeps our prices competitive and we can thus deliver beautiful and unique pocket watches that will not cost you a small fortune. The silver colour comes naturally from the stainless steel casings.
They are made in many different sizes and shapes, but typically the dial diameters are 4.5cm. These watches fit perfectly in waistcoat pockets and come with chains that have a variety of lengths and thicknesses. If you don't find the style you want call or write, we should be able to accommodate your request.
There are two types of pocket watches: mechanical movement and quartz movement. As with wristwatches, they're powered either by an interchangeable battery for the quartz models or actual winding in the mechanical movement.
Mechanical pocket watches run for up to two days per rewind. Generally, that's not a problem because this style of watch is usually worn on special occasions. Watch connoisseurs (horologists) tend to prefer mechanical watches because of their intricate machinery. Some mechanical pocket watches are automatic, meaning they wind as you move thanks to a small weight that oscillates as you walk, winding the mainspring.

The watch on the left is mechanical with a smooth sweep. The watch on the right has a definite cadence to its sweep.
Most pocket watches can be engraved on the caseback. Some hunter watches (those with closable lids) can feature engravings on the inside or outside of the lid.
Even if we don’t offer an engraving service for the watch you like, you may be able to have it engraved at your local jeweller. Ornate pocket watches with intricate designs may not be able to take an engraving.
Typical text for engraving includes “World’s best dad,” “Congratulations,” and a simple “I love you.”
