5.0 out of 5 stars Pocket Watch, April 25, 2012

This review is from: Pocket Watch Quartz Movement Black Case White Dial Arabic Numerals with Chain Full Hunter Design PW-23 (Watch)
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.

This is my second pocket watch. The first one, a Swiss Army pocket watch has a leather case for when you don't have a watch pocket and it has no cover you can flip open. But what I want is a chime pocket watch.

It's very easy to open: just move the chain holder to one side, gently press the winding stem down with your thumb resting on the bottom hinge and just like magic, it opens. Don't pry it!

Yes. It may at first look like a puzzle, but, what I did was to pop the back from off of the watch, pull the stem up (like you would to set the time) which will give you a little more room, pull the plastic cage off carefully (this will fully expose the battery), remove old battery (noting the number imprinted on the top) and insert the new battery into the battery location. Replace plastic cage carefully so as not to put pressure on the stem and riplace the back cover. Then reset the hands while the stem is in the upper position and push the stem back into the down position. Your watch should now work without problems.
