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.

Good Material Poor Mechanics
By August Bride

About Me Bride
Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop gunmetal mechanical pocket watch:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A Great Gift for Groomsmen
from Brandon, MS
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

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!
Really Nice Product
By Peacock Bride
from Mundelein, IL
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.

Very Sad Bride
from Rochester Hills, MI
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
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
