Many people think of pocket watches the same way they think of throwback jerseys – classic and old-fashioned. The truth is, though, that while pocket watches are among the most classic of timepieces, it doesn’t mean they’re all old-fashioned. Indeed, the most stunning timepieces feature contemporary interpretations of classic designs. If you’re looking for an accessory that delivers both form and function, consider these five beautiful contemporary pocket watch designs.

London Vintage Style Mechanical Time Piece

Based on the classic styling popular in early 20th century London, the London Vintage Style Mechanical Pocket Watch offers the protection of a hunter’s case watch while mimicking an open-face pocket watch design. The front of the case cover features a scratch-resistant mineral glass inset that reveals and magnifies the watch face. The glass front is bordered with an engraved rope of antique brash finished metal. The back of the watch features a peek-a-boo window that reveals the inner workings of the precision-engineered timepiece. It’s an excellent choice for a professional look.

Double Side Open Mechanical Time Piece

Modern sensibility combines with classic design to create this beautiful standout among time pieces. Unlike most hunter case pocket watches, the double side open mechanical pocket watchcase does as its name implies. It opens both on the front side and the backside. The front opening is covered with scratch resistant mineral glass and is bordered with a ring engraved with the hours so you can read the time without opening the case. The watch face is open in the center, revealing the inner mechanical workings from both the front and the back of the watch. This is a stunning, intricate accessory.

Modern Style Time Piece

Unusual and delightful, the Modern Style Pocket Watch features a double-faced design. The front is enclosed in a pop-open hunter’s case engraved and embossed with an asymmetrical design of swirls and leaves. The back features a peek-a-boo window, but instead of the expected gears and clockworks, it reveals a second clock face to allow you to see the time without opening the front of the case. The edging of the case back is an openwork metal design with a steampunk aesthetic, making it the ideal bridge accessory for business and casual attire.

Pirate Time Piece

Ahoy, matey! In contrast to vintage models, this watch reveals a playful contemporary design engraved with the image of a grinning skull and crossbones wearing a pirate hat and an eye patch. The front case pops open with the click of a button to reveal a standard clock face, and the back is beautifully burnished brass suitable for engraving.

If your fashion preferences are contemporary, you’ll find many modern and unique pocket watch designs online. The best websites feature wholesale time pieces and other imported accessories, including pendant watches, cameos, gold leaf jewelry, and designer handbags. From pirate skulls to butterflies, you’ll find time pieces that will complete any outfit, and that would be perfect to give as gifts.
