We stumbled upon a nice and cute pocket watch last week. It’s a 14k gold plated, in good running condition with a very clean white ceramic dial and the word ‘Napoleon’ clearly inscribed on the dial and probably aged around 60 years.

I still remember the good old days back in the late fifties and early sixties where quite a number of people used to carry pocket watches as a mean to keep time.

There was a smartly dressed teacher then in my primary school who came to school with a gold pocket watch tucked in the pocket of his vest. The students dubbed him 'Mr Smart'.

Subsequent advancement in the horology world of wrist watches has more or less consigned the pocket watches to the pages of history and museum display.

Still, the memory of smart looking gentlemen with their elegant looking pocket watches remained fresh in my mind.
