In contrast to the wristwatch that is meant to be worn on the wrist, a pocket watch, as the name implies, is designed to be carried inside the pocket. Pocket watches, which have a longer history in horology than their wrist counterparts, can be a welcome addition to your collection, as they have designs and features that are not found on a wristwatch. Here are some of the bestselling pocket watches from Fafada that you might be proud to own.
