The Pocket Watches Universe
Ever since Peter Henlein invented the first pocket watch in Nuremberg Germany late 1510, the ageless timepiece over centuries has become a symbol of status and manly elegance; much more than it was intended.
The Global Description of Pocket Watches
A pocket watch is a simple timepiece with a chain-link attachable to a pocket. Pocket watches come in different sizes and are typically measured in 30ths of an inch, also known as the “Lancashire Gauge” adopted from England. Just like every other timepiece, there are larger sizes of 18s, 16s and 12s for men, while 0s, 6s and 8s are for the ladies, then there is 10s and 12 as considered unisex.
Earliest known railroad pocket watches had relatively wider case diameters. However, it is essential to note that pocket watch sizes are not dependent on the outside case diameter. Instead, the case size is a function of its style and design.
The Cultural Relevance of Pocket Watches
In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Pocket watches were often given as special gifts or handed down as heirlooms through the patriarchal line of the family. This made sense because they were often made with durable and precious materials, thus having one in then was a symbol of social status.
Culturally, a pocket watch symbolizes punctuality and loyalty. Punctuality begets respect, which is often associated with the earliest characteristics of gentlemen. In another description, some pocket watch designs (skeleton) show the gears of the clock, which some believe represents the inner workings of the individual.
