There is a growing threat to the image and quality of pocket watches coming onto the market now, namely cheap quartz watches from China that appear to be flooding the market and bringing the whole pocket watch industry down. Remember when cheap LED watches were dumped onto the market in the 1970s, the effect on the quality mechanical watch industry was devastating. Hopefully we are not seeing a rerun of those days.
So some advice I would certainly give to anyone looking to buy new pocket watches is first and foremost, make sure that what you are buying has a quality mechanical movement inside the case. I would much prefer to buy a good quality Swiss mechanical movement, but having said that, if its accuracy that you are after then quartz maybe your best option. There are some very nice watches from the likes of Euro Geneve that would fit the bill nicely.
I will give you a list of mechanical watches that I consider are of reasonable quality and would make a good purchase, of course the final decision is up to you and I am not endorsing any of these products.
Charles Hubert makes a range of mechanical watches that is very well priced and good looking too. Including skeleton, hunter and half hunter models, these appear to offer good value for the pocket watch buyer.
In the quartz department, Euro Geneve make some really stunning solid gold pocket watches, they are quite expensive and personally I don't like the fact that they have a quartz movement, but nevertheless they are still nice looking watches.
There are actually quite a few brands of new pocket watches, here is a list, in no particular order, of some of the better ones:
I am currently working on finding a supplier of pocket watches so that I can possibly offer them for sale here on Antique Pocket Watch. Until then, if you are interested in finding these makers, I suggest simply searching for "new pocket watches" (including the "") in Google, where you will easily find them for sale.
