A small, round timepiece and the predecessor of the wristwatch.
A pocket watch is meant to be carried inside the pocket of a suit coat, waist coat or, rarely, a pocket watch pocket near the waistline of trousers.
The watch is attached by means of a small chain to either a button or loop inside the coat.
Pocket watches have a long history and as a result are made in various ways and different degrees of artistry.
Pocket watches were considered to be more masculine than the effeminate wristwatch hence why only men carried pocket watches.
