This gunmetal pocket watch is simply marvelous to bestow upon any special dude in your wedding party. The visible gears give the old-fashioned item a modern appeal, while the Roman numeral numbers on the watch face keep it traditionally Sherlock Holmes-ish. The pocket watch, which snaps shut, has a 1 3/4" perimeter and sports a 12" chain. You have the option of engraving the back of the case. Think about it –he'll never forget to take a little time out for your friendship, even after he takes that ominous walk down the aisle.

These pocket watches are perfect. They look great in person and were even nicer than we expected. They have a definite steampunk vibe with the exposed gears. We plan on giving them as gifts for the fathers of the bride and groom and I do not think they will be dissapointed.

The only negative comment I have about these pocket watches is that they do not come with instructions and do not have a clear description on the website. For those of you leaving negative reviews, I do hope you realized that these are meant to be wound. They will not run if you do not do so!

My fiancé and I bought six of these watches for our groomsmen. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the material (they have a nice heft to them). Of the six watches, one arrived broken. I see from the comments that others have received defective watches as well - this leads me to think that the mechanics are poor.

Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop gunmetal mechanical pocket watch:

Bought this as a gift for my little 8 year old cousin who was our Jr. Groomsman..he loved it and felt like such a big shot wearing it. Even though it was a little pricey it was nicely made and personalized the price was well worth the excitement on my little groomsmans face when we gave it to him.

Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop gunmetal mechanical pocket watch:

It's manually wound (as in doesn't run on a battery) so you just need to wind it regularly, or else it'll slow to a stop. The recipient likes that it's a manual because he will never have to replace batteries.
Got it custom engraved with the Old English font, and it was done a little lighter/ not as deep or dark as I had hoped, but the recipient described it as delicate so as not to detract from the watch but still very legible. The gun metal is sort of chipping or peeling away closer to the engraved bit after 2 weeks of wear as to reveal some brass, but nothing detrimental.
Seeing as how he uses it everyday, I see the inconvenience of him having to pull it out of his pocket. Next time I may consider getting him a skeleton wrist watch instead of pocket

    Got it for me and my groomsmen . Pretty great looking. Only thing that was wrong with the watch was that my name was missing an extra "t". The inside of the watch was really cool.

    Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop gunmetal mechanical pocket watch:

    Ordered three of these guys. Two of them worked, but the third one arrived with a broken winding/setting mechanism (the little knob at the top) -- literally the only external part of the thing that needs to work. Seems confusing to me that the manufacturer wouldn't test the thing before shipping it out.

    Also, they come with no instructions, so be prepared to use the interwebz to learn how to use a pocket watch.

    Overall, I mean you get what you pay for. They look super cool and they're cheap. I read the reviews before purchasing, so I wasn't even disappointed when one arrived broken. I sort of expected it. Currently filling out the form to exchange it. We'll see if they can dig around for a functional one this time.

        Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop gunmetal mechanical pocket watch:

        We ordered four of these pocketwatches. Three engravings were first names in English Script, one was initials in Claredon. I have to say that the English Script names show up better and look great! The initials in Claredon don't show up quite as well, but it is still visible. I think that these make great keepsakes and I love that they are wind up instead of battery operated. We used them for a vintage wedding, so that seems fitting. Great purchase and they conveniently arrived with a box for wrapping. I am very pleased with these

        I purchased these for my future husband and his best man, I loved the faceplate, the winding feature and the ability to see the inner mechanics from the back of the watch! I know that the pocket watches are going to be a hit, I am buying two more for the fathers!

        I was not a fan of how light the engraving was, it was barely visable. Although, I thought it was a great product for the money.

            Ordered for Groom and Best Man, Big Disappointment! Not only was the engraving poor and was nearly unreadable, the watches did not work! What an embarrassment! Do not order these for anyone you care about and make sure to not engrave as there is no point. I would look at over sites if you want to engrave.

            Sincerely,
            Very Sad Bride
