An interesting Cartier PW

I saw this in Paris recently. It displays three timezones. the sub registers are set by pushing the tiny pusher at 11 with a finger nail. The dial had some texture and patina but, in a nice way. ... I was seriously tempted to get it. The idea of a PW is s...  

Iโ€™m with you on the pocket watch hunt

often amazing history, amazing value for money, amazing finishing. Just have to find the right one. Iโ€™m looking for very high end chronometres even combined with tourbillons. All somehow accessible.... Youโ€™re example has also a lot of charm. Just thinking... 

Im with you, Dirk. I have seen some spectacular pieces from Vacheron and Patek

With pocket watches no external restraint is effective ... chosing a theme in advance is very helpful. I have manual, automatic, quartz, electronic, white gold, yellow gold, steel, plastic, ultra-thin, American, Swiss, Japanese ... Large, medium, small, p...

But somehow I am not completely surprised, Mike ;-) You are a collector par excellence! I know you have a hundred-and-something wrist watches but how many PW? I will take your advice to heart about finding a theme. Thatโ€™s the way to enter this time. Thank... 

About 20 I think

They tend to get left with my cuff links, or in a cigar box, or partially-assembled in a service tray... I don't even know for sure how many are here: Mike ...  

20 is quite a substantial collection...

But I am relieved to hear that you still see the potential for expanding it ...LOL Christian

Love the case and dial too FPJ is superior too!

Yes, agree George - I was seriously tempted by it, but felt I didnt know enough about PWs.

An interesting detail - it was not plexi but crystal glass. The Journe I love. A highly original piece and such a harmonious watch to wear both because af the symmetry of the dial and the nice proportions of the case.
