4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for the price, October 4, 2011

This review is from: Charles-Hubert, Paris Stainless Steel Quartz Pocket Watch (Watch)
Just bought this to replace my stolen Victorinox Swiss Army pocket watch (24720?).

This is very light weight compared to my old watch.

I use pocket watches daily and have gone through 3 pocket watches over about 25 years. One thing I learned is that the stem is the weakest part, so there is less risk/wear/tear with a watch which has no cover (covers are opened many times a day), a battery-powered quartz movement (no winding, infrequent time adjustment), and no date indicator (date adjust at least 5 months/year).

I like the look of this watch: clean, simple lines, easy to read numerals for over-40 eyes. The hands are more ornate/busy than I prefer; no big deal. The logo and other text on the face are also unwelcome clutter to an otherwise clean look.

The second hand has almost a full second worth (6 degrees) of backlash. If you just gently tilt the watch, the second hand will rotate forward or backward ~1 second. Don't know if this is backlash in the gears or in the hand/collar attachment. Guess that's the quality you get at this price point, not a deal breaker for me. The hour and minute hands do not have this issue.

The chain has a large lobster claw on the far end with a lever nub to make it easier to open. Not great quality, but appears better than the "C" clasp I had before. Verdict is out on its durability. Also has a swivel on each clasp; the large one spins loosely, the small one stiffly. Posted a pic. Chain is 14 + 3/4 inches long from clasp end to clasp end; chain itself is 12 inches. Clasps are attached to chain with "C" rings; they do not appear to be soldered/welded.

Will plan to update as it ages or gives me any trouble.

Update: 1 thing I miss compared to my old watch. I used to be able to clip the chain's "C" clasp onto a link of the chain, so I could run it through a belt loop and adjust the overall length this way to remove slack that rattles agains the watch in the pocket and have less to fish out. The claw on this one is too large to fit in a chain link. I might try to obtain a C clasp to do this, and just clip the lobster to it. Will post a pic whenever I get this accomplished.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good pocket watch, March 10, 2014

After much searching on the net and in stores, it seemed a good, reasonably priced pocket watch was hard to find. This one fit the bill. Seems well made and has a life time guarantee. I am happy so far. The chain is also quite sturdy, and the clasp can be hooked over the chain to shorten it. Large enough face to be readable with these aging eyes.
