Antique Pocket Watch Collecting for Profit & Pleasure

Pocket Watch movement

Would you like to start collecting Antique Pocket Watches but are not sure what to buy? Or maybe you need some information about Pocket Watch makers? Or values, serial numbers, cases, parts, mechanisms...?

There are a few web sites out there that are about Wrist Watches, some about Pocket Watches too, but I've struggled to come across many that have enough information in the one place to be of much use. Antique Pocket Watch is a resource full of information about Pocket Watches. (Well, maybe a few of my favourite Wrist Watches too)!

New! - I am working on a new section of the site which is going to feature all sorts of information on Antique Clocks. Lots of people are interested in clocks, be they Grandfather Clocks, Mantel Clocks, Carriage Clocks...and many more, so from today watch out for lots of new information being uploaded to the site daily.

Pocket Watch & Clock collecting is something that is becoming more and more popular as people realize that they not only look great, but they can be a fantastic long-term investment as well. As with any good investment, you need advice to start you off, and hopefully this site will help you along that path.

Happy Collecting!
