How To Properly Wear Pocket Watches

It is a rare pleasure to find someone utilizing a pocket watch in light of how times have changed over the years. When encountering this situation, it is important to recognize some of the key characteristics of the person who wears or utilizes this type of watch. As in any other area of life, there are standards expected in regards to how something is done. Someone obviously would not wear their undergarments on the outside of their trousers and in this case the pocket watch also adheres to similar restrictions.

Upon proper consideration, one would notice that pocket watches have a length of chain stretching from it so as to keep the watch intact at all times to the person wearing it. The first and most obvious rule to properly wearing pocket watches is to not allow this protruding chain to hang excessively down the side of the pant leg. Damage to the watch or the person wearing it would be possible should this rule not be adhered to, as the chain could serve as an obstacle in certain everyday events.

More Things To Consider

The second suggested observation in properly wearing pocket watches is that of which pocket the holder keeps the time telling part. In most cases, pocket watches reside in one of the upper pants pockets on the person bearing them. In other cases, one may find that the holder conceals his or her pocket watch in a vest or jacket pocket closer to the chest.

Either way it is important to recognize the preferences that those who wear pocket watches live by. Finally, the preferred hand of choice may also have much to do with which side of the body that someone keeps the watch on. Pocket watches are easily adapted to fit almost any criteria as they are as flexible as any other method of time telling, if not more.

The engraving and metals used on the pocket watches allow durability in regards to wear and weather so that regardless of where it is stored, it remains beautiful time and time again when brought out. It may be a rare occurrence to find someone that still has an appreciation for pocket watches, but when this type of person surfaces it is guaranteed to be an interesting conversation as to what influence has caused such a thing. After considering all of these basics, try to identify which pocket is being used and to which length the chain attached is.
