   A pocket watch is a portable timepiece designed to be carried in a pocket rather than strapped to the wrist like a wrist watch. Traditionally, pocket watches are attached to a bracelet or chain and worn in a vest pocket. The chain is made of stainless steel or alloy. Pocket watches have a hinged cover to protect the face, which is often decorated with intricate patterns or personal engravings.

    The mechanism of a pocket watcg can be a mechanical watch that requires manual winding or a quartz watch powered by a miniature battery. The face of a pocket watch usually has hour, minute, and sometimes second hand. Some pocket watches are also digital, with additional functions such as stopwatch and alarm.

  Double-Hunter: The front and back of the watch have a metal cover. Both covers can be opened, and the time can only be read after opening.

When were pocket watches invented

     The history of the pocket watch dates back to the 16th century. When Peter Henlein, a locksmith and watchmaker from Nuremberg, Germany, invented the first pocket watch in 1510. Early timepieces were bulky and worn around the neck, but as technology improved, they became smaller and more portable. In addition, the first pocket watches had mechanical movements.

     The 17th century saw the vest pocket watch, popularized mainly by King Charles II. With the Industrial Revolution, pocket watches became a popular accessory for railroad workers because of their convenience and reliability. Pocket watches remained a popular choice until the early 20th century, when wrist watches replaced them.
