If there’s any category of replica watches that still remains under-the-radar, it has to be pocket watches. There are so many hidden treasures yet to be discovered, and this cheap copy Longines pocket watch is just that. A crisp white enamel dial, bold stylized Arabic numerals, and the blued steel Breguet-style hands all come together to give me a nostalgic vibe.
And to add a twist to this quintessentially classic pocket fake watch with black Arabic numerals hour markers design, it comes with a power reserve indicator and an unusual hacking central seconds hand, which have since evolved to be a part of standard wristwatch design language as well.
This pocket watch is also fitted with a chronometer-grade movement, caliber 21.29, which has been in Longines’ repertoire since 1910. Perhaps because of the larger crown on top compared to a wristwatch crown, it feels a lot more satisfying, and the sound of the ticking seconds is priceless.
Stylistically speaking, while this steel case Longines copy pocket watch dates to 1948 – as confirmed by Longines’ archives – it certainly carries over a pocket watch aesthetic that is closer to the turn of the 20th century, which makes this piece that much more special. Because of the large size, it would be a perfect “analog” desk companion in today’s digital world. Click here to check it out in full.
