Long before Rolex established itself as the top name in luxury wristwatches, founders Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis were making fine Rolex pocket watches with an emphasis on quality and function. Each of these watches is inscribed with the Rolex name just below the number 12, and features a second, smaller clock face for counting seconds. The company stopped making Rolex pocket watches in the 1950s to focus solely on wrist watches, but you can find a vast inventory of vintage Rolex pocket watches, as well as other vintage timepieces, on eBay. Look for an authentic antique pocket watch from the World War II era, featuring a handsome black background and gold numbers. Add one of these special watches to the pocket of a tuxedo jacket for a black tie ball, or choose an even older model from the 1920s to complete a Roaring Twenties theme costume. A vintage pocket watch can also help you to look distinguished at an elegant cocktail party or an important business meeting. Many of these watches are so well-made that you can expect them to keep perfect time as long as you remember to wind them.
