The open face pocket watch is perhaps the most well known of all the pocket watch styles. full hunter, half hunter and double hunter are all popular case styles but the open face is perhaps the most classic or historical example. The well to do Victorian London man would often have a pocket watch as a fundamental part of his overall outfit. So, the face is open (the pocket watch has no lid) which means there are no covers obstructing the hands, making telling the time extremely straightforward. We stock a wide range of pocket watches without a protective case front as well as some of the other styles mentioned earlier such as the double hunter and half double hunter with both quartz analogue and mechanical movements movements.
If you are on the lookout for a special gift for a loved one, then an open face engravable pocket watch would make a truly personalised gift and something to be treasured.
