Just because I can... here are, you guessed it, some really amazing pocket watches that I wanted to share with you.
I was researching the origins of the pentagon pocket watch case, from one of which I made a pendant which is still for sale (hint hint), and found these along the way. (I will post about the history of the five-sided beauties another time.) Here are some of my favorites!
These were but a few of the pieces for sale by this antiques merchant, Lang Antiques; they have four glorious pages of pocket watches, lapel watches, and the like. (Disclaimer: I do not work for them, I simply spent time drooling over their merchandise, whatever relationship that entails, if any. =p)
If you adore pocket watches as much as I do, it will be worth your while to take a look at the rest of their inventory. It warms my heart that such care is being taken to preserve these beautiful works of art.
