Also included in our collection are antique pocket watches. Before the inception of wrist watches, pocket watches were a fashionable accessory worn by men, popularised in the 16th century. Although the working classes wore pocket watches, among the elite they were seen as a symbol of status. Often, such pocket watches were made from gold or other precious metals, and incorporated detailed designs in regards to both the casing and the clock face. The chain would then attach to the waistcoat with a small clip fastening, allowing the wearer to easily access the time, and add a bit of decoration to their sartorial choices.
