Did not last

Summary: When I received this watch it was not running so I wound it and made sure I did not over tighten the spring. It worked fine that day. The next day I noticed it had lost time so I wound it a little. It never kept time after that second day. Good looking watch, too bad it was defective.
Summary: I am one of those people who cannot successfully wear a wrist watch as I keep banging it into things. I was lookIing for a mechanical pocket watch and this one fits the bill perfectly. It is a very accurate timepiece and my grandkids love watching the mechanical movement of the watch.
Summary: I bought this watch for my boyfriend as a Christmas gift, and he absolutely loved it! It looks fantastic, and it works like a charm. I would highly recommend this or any of the Charles-Hubert watches to anyone in need of a time piece.
Summary: I bought several of these watches for the groomsmen in my wedding and feel that I made a very good choice. I wound the watches for several days before giving them as gifts, and they worked flawlessly. These watches keep time to the minute if they are wound daily.
Summary: Loved the look, feel. Heeded the caution about carefully closing it...still wouldn't clasp after about a week, so I just removed the cover. Then the freakin' thing died. Worst purchase I've ever made in my life.
Smaller than expected, but still a wonderful watch

Summary: When I first saw the watch I was surprised at the size. It is slightly, but noticeably, smaller than a standard pocket watch. However it feels quite solid and hefty, has stood up well to daily use and the mechanical movement is mesmerizing.
Summary: Exactly what I have been looking for, quality in a pocket watch. Keeps excellent time without the problem of batteries that always seem to die at the wrong time. Being a period reenactor, it has added a nice, reliable, and authentic piece to my costuming.
