Between the Apple Watch and Samsung Galaxy Gear, timepieces are morphing from practical fashion accessories into wearable computers that distract you wherever you go. The nostalgic simplicity of a simple, elegant Waltham pocket watch can seem pretty attractive in comparison to modern devices if you prefer your computers on your desk and not on your wrist. The Waltham Watch Company produced beautiful high-end timepieces for over 100 years between the late 19th and early 20th century. Abe Lincoln himself was the proud owner of a Waltham pocket watch, which he received as a gift after giving the Gettysburg Address. In the 1800s, a solid gold Waltham pocket watch was as hot an item as any brand new smartphone is in the modern era. Whether you shun technology in favor of classic timepieces or you are simply a fan of the retro look, a pocket watch is something you can enjoy and treasure for years to come. If you want a quality timepiece that you can pass on to your grandkids someday, sellers on eBay offer plenty of deals on vintage Waltham pocket watches in gold and silver.
