About: A pocket watch (or pocketwatch) is a watch that is made to be carried in a pocket, as opposed to a wristwatch, which is strapped to the wrist. There are two main styles of pocket watch, the hunter-case pocket watch, and the open-face pocket watch. An open-faced, or Lepine, watch, is one in which the case lacks a metal cover to protect the crystal. A hunter-case pocket watch is a case with a spring-hinged circular metal lid or cover, that closes over the watch-dial and crystal, protecting them from dust, scratches and other damage or debris. Up until the start of the 20th century, the pocket watch was predominant and the wristwatch was considered feminine and unmanly. Puzzle Of The Day On:
