Speidel Classic Brushed Satin Pocket Watch
Speidel might be popular for their medical watches but they are no slouches when it comes to pocket watches either.
The watchmaker opts for a rather uncommon polished black finish on this watch. The color blends well against the silver-tone detailing on the watch hands, hour markers, and watch face itself.
Note that you can get the watch in different finishes (silver of different grades) if the standard option does not sit down well with you.
This is not your regular pocket watch either, featuring a system of two chronographs for added functionality.
At 47mm, the watch is not exactly small. Since you won’t be wearing it around your wrists, the size is just ideal.
- Reliable manufacturer
- Different color finishes
- Unique black design
- Chronograph systems
- Easy-to-access push-button crown
- Ideal for gifting
- Choice of materials could be better
- Doesn’t feel heavy enough for a pocket watch
Tissot Unisex Savonettes Swiss Pocket Watch
Swiss watches are great, so just guess how amazing swiss pocket watches will also be!
This sterling silver full hunter pocket watch from Tissot is highly simplistic with a uniform finish from start to end. The only different colors can be found on the watch face itself where the hour markings assume a shade of black. These color choices reflect well against and on each other for the best overall effect.
Under the hood, Tissot maintains swiss quartz movements for both reliable timekeeping and ease of watch cleaning, servicing and repair. At 48.50mm, this is not a small watch – but its size is just right for a pocket watch nonetheless.
Besides the watch itself, Tissot slaps on a high-quality chain to add to the overall appeal of the watch. Well before you take out the watch to check time like the gentleman that you are, the chain already announces what a fine timepiece you are carrying inside your clothes.
- High-quality finishing
- Laudable chain design and material
- Large enough size for a pocket watch
- Swiss quartz movement and quality promise
- Easy-to-read watch
- Gives great value for the money
- We just couldn’t find one thing we didn’t like here ha-ha.
Things Remembered Personalised Gunmetal Pocket Watch
If you are looking for a pocket watch to gift someone, here is one ideal choice for you. You could also get this watch to mark/ commemorate a special occasion for yourself.
The watch itself comes in a gunmetal finish which makes the engravings stand out against the case. Opening the watch cover reveals copper accents which, again, is well pronounced against the gunmetal finish.
We also appreciate the high-quality chain that accompanies every unit of this watch. On top of that, you don’t have to pay anything extra to have the watch customized to taste.
Whether you are getting it for yourself or someone else, this watch can quickly become a family heirloom to be passed from one generation to the other.
- Fully customizable watch
- Gunmetal finish and copper accents
- Doesn’t feel cheap in the hand
- Ideal gift for men (fathers, grandfathers, brothers, husbands, etc)
- Multiple color options would be great
Rapport Mechanical Full Hunter Gold Plated Pocket Watch
For this watch, Rapport also has a fine pick with a silver finish (as seen in the picture gallery above). However, we loved the accents, tones, and finishing on this gold option better.
It is not every day that you see a gold full hunter pocket watch that doesn’t try to overdo it. This watch puts its biggest strength in staying simple yet functional and stylish for the eventual gentlemen to wear it.
A full hunter pocket watch with mechanical movement is as close to the classic thing as possible. It is such small attention to details as we see on this watch that makes us love it even more.
We also appreciate the single chronograph at the 6 o’clock marker. That sits down well against the rest of the watch face design, coming in in black. Complete with a unique presentation box to match, we would have loved it if Rapport shipped this unit with a chain to match.
- A simple yet elegant watch
- High-quality materials
- Polished finish and make
- Large pocket watch
- Price is on the high side
- Doesn’t come with a chain
BOSHIYA Doctor Who Pocket Watch
The fans of Doctor Who should love to collect this fine pocket watch as inspired by the titular character. Even if you were not a fan of Doctor Who, the watch provides enough eye candy and functionality to reel you in anyways.
At 58mm, this pocket watch is as oversized as they come. It’s a good thing that the watch will almost always be in your pocket then.
The large face makes it easy to read the time at a glance. We feel that the watch face is a little busy with all that design going on, but we will leave you to make that decision.
Looking elsewhere, a combination of professional workmanship with a good battery and sharp appearances makes this watch a good bargain for the money. Throw in the option to select between black and silver-tone finishes, and we have yet another reason to go for this one.
At the meagre price it sells at, you can even get both colors for your collection.
Finally, it carries a good weight that doesn’t make it flimsy on the hands.
- Most inexpensive pick on the list
- Perfect for fans of Doctor Who
- Heavy enough for a pocket watch
- Ideal as a gift
- Large face for better time reading
- Exquisite chain design
- Too big and heavy for some users
- Watch hands are a little tiny for some users
Charles-Hubert Paris 3900-W Classic
The Paris 3900-W Classic is one pocket watch that we don’t think will spend much time in your pocket. It is just too beautiful to look at with its full silvery tone finish that you will want it in your palms more than your pocket.
At 47mm, size is not a problem for this watch. It also weighs right enough for the perfect feel in the hands. On the pocket watch face is one of the most unique date display designs – and it is nothing short of beautiful.
A chrome back finish and high-quality material of make everywhere else betrays the price point of this watch. We thought it would cost more – and it would have even been justified at that.
Backed by an established brand name, quartz movement, and a lifetime movement warranty, this is surely one of the best full hunter pocket watches in silver.
- Reputable manufacturer
- Chrome finish silver case
- Comes with a deluxe gift box
- Keeps great time
- Looks as nice as it feels
- Crystals can feel cheap
- Some users would prefer a glass cover
