We have seen a vast rise in the demand for Antique Pocket Watches here at LoveAntiques.com in recent months, which could be down to the popularity of recent period dramas such as Peaky Blinders and Downton Abbey or simply because they make for timeless gifts. Whatever the reason is for this surge in sales, we're sure you'll have your own reason for loving Antique Pocket Watches. Our Dealer of The Month has a deep-rooted love for Antique Pocket Watches that stems from a rather endearing childhood memory. Leslie Licht, the founder of Euro Antique Watches, recalls a fond memory from his childhood where he was sat holding a beautiful Silver IWC Schaffhausen Pocket Watch belonging to his Grandfather, and became transfixed watching the second hand travel steadily around the face of the watch. He had a very close bond with his Grandfather, and when he sadly passed away years later, Leslie inherited this Pocket Watch, so of course, the watch serves as a memory of his dear Grandfather. From then on, Leslie started collecting Pocket Watches and in 1985 this hobby became a business and he established Euro Antique Watches. He started trading at Antiques Fairs, meeting customers and making business contacts, which brought him much enjoyment and great satisfaction, especially when seeing the delight in his customers faces when they purchased one of his Pocket Watches. With times changing and on-line services growing, Leslie made the decision in more recent years to solely trade online, selling mostly Antique Pocket Watches and the occasional clock or pocket watch fob and chain. He takes pleasure in listing new items on LoveAntiques.com and when asked what he enjoys most about the products he sells, he advised us that he mostly enjoys the high-quality technical movements, and is fascinated by the craftsmanship that goes in to these 'true pieces of art' When it comes to customer service, Leslie says, "My motto is: The client is king! I always offer my best service, and as a result I have received a large amount of very positive feedback regarding both service and packaging over the years. Buying at Euro Antique Watches is guaranteed to be a great experience" So whether you're looking for a gift or simply wanting to add to your own collection, make sure you take a look at the superb array of stock on offer from Euro Antique Watches.

This is a silver John Bennett open face pocket watch, hallmarked for London 1906. This pocket watch is made by the famous John Bennett. (See history underneath). This pocket watch is coming with a book from David Rooney who writes an entire chapter about Sit John Bennett. Dial: The white enamel dial has black Roman numerals with outer minute divisions. The dial has blued hands and a subsidiary second’s dial at the six. Movement: The English fully screwed movement has blued screws. The original Bennett movement is in great condition as it has just been serviced by my watchmaker; however, we cannot guarantee accuracy for an antique watch. The movement is signed: " Sir John Bennett Ltd, 65 Cheapside, London" and numbered: 60703. Case: The pocket watch lies in a silver case with a smooth finish. The inner side of the case is hallmarked for silver London 1906 with the casemakers initials Wb and numbered: 60703. History: Sir John Bennett, son of watchmaker John Bennett and Elizabeth Sinnock, was born October 10, 1814, in Kent, England. When his father died, he took over the family jewellery and clock making business with the help of his mother. He became very successful and moved from his shop on Stockwell Street in Greenwich to his soon-to-be famous shop in Cheapside, London, in 1847. He became the biggest retailer of Swiss watches. His activities led to the foundation of the British Horological Institute.
