Pocket Watches In The 21st Century .

Recommended Posts

I so wanted to write an erudite response to this question and gave it considerable thought, with a look at the overall development of watches, and miniaturisation generally, leading to the present day position vis a vis mobile phones, smart watches and mechanical/quartz wristwatches. My thoughts ended in a blank, however, concluding that pocket watches of classic form will only come back in a big way if they are seen to be a necessity. Once the public feels that something is necessary and has willing producers able to supply the demand, then fashion and style start to enter the picture, providing variety and catering to different sections of the market. I cannot say if analogue pocket watches will ever gain ground again though I would hazard a guess that their days as a major timekeeping accessory are unlikely to return.:)
