New Day, New Watch

Another of the little presents I ordered myself came in today.

Had been wanting a open faced(as oposed to having a hinged cover) pocket watch lately, and also a mechanical pocket watch for a while now.   Came up with this one, a low cost import on ebay. I got this one because its rather a unique case with the wide loop and offset crown. Also because of the several(hundreds…) of skeletonized faced watches I looked at, it actually looked readable. (and it is!)

SP-Mech-Watch-2

 

Also turned out to be a bit bigger than I expected, bigger than the average pocket watch, or in any case, bigger than all of mine. Not too big though.

 

SP-Mech-Watch-3

 

Its not only bigger, but heavier, and not because of the size, but its heavier built in case thickness and from the looks heavier in internal frames.  Has a good feel to it.  (Naturaly a mechanical is heavier than a simple quartz watch, but this is heavier than my other mechanical pocketwatch((which doesn’t work, thus my wanting another one)) )

It started instantly at the first winding, and after setting ran great. It lost about 5 minutes in the first hour, but after re-setting and winding, its run perfectly without losing any more time for the past 6 hours.
