Mechanical pocket watches are the perfect choice for fans of the classic watch style, especially in the skeleton watch style as you can admire the intricate inner workings of the watch. A mechanical pocket watch is powered by a mechanism that relies on a balance wheel, gear train, escapement and mainspring to keep time. Mechanical pocket watches also require being hand wound every 24 hours to ensure they maintain accurate time. At Pocket Watches, we offer a wide range of mechanical pocket watches from some of the leading pocket watch brands including Greenwich, Jean Pierre of Switzerland and Rapport.
Mechanical pocket watches need to be hand wound every 24-28 hours to keep time. Often mechanical watches have a skeleton display so the movement can be seen through the dial.
