Circa 1910s Moonface Pocket Watch

Hi watch collectors,

Some people might think the modern complicated wristwatches' designs are something new. Actually it is not, it is the recycle of old designs. Here is one classic design example of Moonface design, day, date and month. Found this piece from an Antique Shop.

Pocket Watches' case comes in different material for example Solid Gold, Rolled Gold, Silver, Nickel, Stainless Steel and last Gun Metal (Similar to an M16 metal). The Pink/ Rose Gold are the usual in the those era, they come in 18K. 14K, 10K and 9K grade. The 14K and 10K are common in American Market while the 18K and 9K are common to the European Market.

Once again, hope you learn something new.

International Watch Company (IWC)

Hi Watch Collectors,

From my business trip, guess what I have found among the trashes, a treasure piece.

It is a 1960s model IWC, I nearly did not get to see it among the watches as I was searching through. The watches of IWC are usually very simple in design which I like for office or formal wear.
