oOoOoOoOoOoh!! A new mechanical watch in this day and age? I'd pay to see that (and have it! Although I'm not sure if I could use it properly).

New mechanical and quartz pocket watches are rather widely available. ETA (owned by Swatch Group which owns Hamilton, Tissot, et al) makes at least two mechanical movements designed specifically for use in pocket watches.

I may yet get that watch and,since I'll never use it,find one of those old watch display domes and hang it there and put it on the desk beside the computer.

I'm trying to buy a watch that will match (or be similiar to) a watch that I once owned as a child. It...

- Had a case, with a lid that closed over the face.
- Was gold.
- Had the winding-stem at 12 o'clock.
- Had a chain with a clip on it.
- Was a quartz movement. (I'd prefer quartz over mechanical or automatic).

I'm looking for more-or-less the same combination, but I'd like to get a second chain with a T-bar on it. You needn't bother trying to search for one for me, I can handle that (You can, if you like, it's up to you. I just don't wanna cause a bother). I've got a fair idea of where I can get what I want and the price. I'm just waiting until after Chinese New Year before I go out and buy one. Hopefully the seller will let me take the watch and two chains at a discount!

The main thing is you have an idea of what you want and the great thing is you know where you can get it...Look forward to your pictures.:thumbup1:

You'll have to wait a month for my finances to boost up a bit after Chinese New Year, but once that happens, I will head off to the city. I will buy a bottle each of Quink black, blue-black and one POCKET WATCH! (With luck. If those watch-vendors still frequent the market, and I'm pretty sure they do).
