If you are trying to find the perfect gift for the guy in your life think about getting him a chain pocket watch. Before you ask, yes, these are still around. Believe it or not people actually do still use them, but they aren’t popular yet. At one point this was the watch to have, that is until we got fancier watches that you could buy at a cheaper price. Getting a chain pocket watch will show someone how much you think of them.
It is a great gift because it’ll be something he wouldn’t expect you to get him, plus you don’t have to know how big his wrist is. If you’ve ever tried shopping for a watch for someone you’ll know exactly what I mean, you either get it too small or too large. With the chain pocket watch he can slip it in and out of his pocket whenever he needs to.
Chain pocket watch offers you a piece of time, not to mention the security of knowing where it is at all times. Do you remember a time when days went by slower and no one was having to rush around? There was once a time when people were courteous to one another and actually stopped to say hello. You’ll be remembered of this time every time you pull out that chain pocket watch.
If you’ve never owned a pocket watch perhaps you’ve seen one in a movie or in real life. I remember watching my grandfather sitting on the couch smoking a cigar, someone had mentioned the time and he pulled this tiny clock out of his pocket. It was at that point that I was mesmerized by the chain pocket watch. This wasn’t something you saw every day, sure in school you could see a clock and most of the time you could check a watch or a phone to see the time. But I’d never seen a clock small enough to fit in a pair of pants and I wanted one. My grandfather sat me down and told me the history of that particular watch and how it had been passed down from one grandchild to the next. No, I wouldn’t end up with that watch but it sure was nice to look at.
There are many different types of chain pocket watch to choose from, you can get one that is open or closed face, animated, plain or even one that sings to you. Giving a chain pocket watch can also be a great gift for a preteen or a teen, not only are these something to pass down but in a way it makes them become a man. We recently did this for our son and he was over the moon. A chain pocket watch not only lets them know what time it is at all times but it gives them responsibility. Today, he’s wanting to collect them because he claims they are a history and he loves history. Get your loved one something that will last a lifetime.
