Superb for the money,

This review is from: Charles Hubert 3846 Two-Tone Mechanical Picture Frame Pocket Watch (Watch)This is my first pocket watch. After extensive review I decided on this one (I love the two-tone). The watch has a solid feel to it. It looks nice and gets plenty of compliments. Mechanically the watch is sound. For mechanicals/price you cannot beat the movement on this watch. The old railroad watches were required to keep time within 30 seconds per week; this does not meet that standard, never-the-less, it does keep good time; on the order of 5 to 8 seconds per day. If you think that is bad, please note that that equates to a 99.98% accuracy (rounded to the hundredths). I am a stickler on watch accuracy, but owning a mechanical that keeps time to within +/- 1 minute PER WEEK has a sense of pride to it that a typical quartz cannot produce.
I highly recommend this watch to anyone with a pallet for both character, and personal nostalgia.
