Pocket Watches.....More to Come...

I purchased this pocket watch from an Austrian eBayer for $100. It is a nice, reliable, German silver(900) example. I recently broke my double Albert pocket watch chain in a number of places. Actually I ran it over, o.k. long story and I don't feel like talking about it. It is too sad an episode for this eccentric young gent to revisit. As a result, I will post a study on double Albert pocket watch chains. For 2 reasons:
  1. To inform my reader*
  2. Help me decide which way I want to go with my purchase
  3. Its just plain fun
So, enjoy the photos of one of my eccentricities. Don't enlarge the photos they are not the best and are a little blurry when enlarged. Oh, it is resting on my red, linen, herringbone odd waistcoat.

*Word is in the singular because I only have one reader who comments. I'd like to receive more comments and questions if anyone else is reading this. If you have any email me at orangegentleman at gmail dot com. Just kidding but, do email me.

Don't worry about comments. I notice that most of the articles on Men's Flair do not get any comments even though they have thousands of readers and have quality articles.

I hear you Alan. It was an inside joke to my friend who reads and then comments to me in person. I keep telling him why not just put it on the blog.

That's a beautiful watch. I'd love to start carrying a pocket watch again.
