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.

Description
American Elgin white gold-filled railroad open face pocket watch, made in the USA in 1926. Dial:- The white enamel dial has black Arabic numerals with outer minute divisions and outer 1-60-minute numbers. The dial has blued hands and a subsidiary second’s dial at the six. The dial is signed in the upper centre: “Elgin”. Movement:- The anchor lever movement has 21 jewels with a high regulator. The movement is signed: “Bw Raymond, 21 Jewels, adjusted 5 Positions” and numbered: 29366444. As this pocket watch has a very high movement and is fully screwed, a watchmaker can make this pocket watch to work with full accuracy! Now the movement is in great working condition; however, we cannot guarantee accuracy for an antique pocket watch. Case:- The watch lies in a white gold-filled open face case with screw case both back and front with a smooth finish. The inner side of the case is signed: “Star Watch Case Co, 10Kt Gold Filled” and numbered: 9620998. Please note: to set the time of watch you need to open the front screw back case and pull out the lever at the one/two and turn the winder to set the correct time. This method was done specially for the guards travelling on a train for the safety of the people, so that they could keep exactly the accurate time. Never pull on the winder as this can break the watch!
