Sometimes it is necessary while working in my wood shop to shed my wrist watch along with any other jewelry on my hands or wrists before using most machines. For this reason, I was in the market for an accurate timepiece that was easily accessible and easily read. So I began to search my friendliest sales location, Amazon.com, to see if they could help solve my problem. Sure enough, I found a variety of pocket watches and the black steel one was the one in which I chose. It was priced right and it runs with a quartz movement for accuracy. I am wearing it now and as an old fogy in blue jeans, it has taken nearly 70 years to figure out why that small pocket above the regular right side pocket is referred to as the watch pocket. The watch is beautifully finished in bright shiny black and the Arabic numbers are easily read. Further more, the lid which easily operates with one hand is there to always protect the watch crystal. This watch is both functional and aesthetic and does bring back some very fond memories of the older days seeing Grandpa or the train conductor reach for and read his pocket watch.
