Royal Observatory Greenwich Chrome Double Hunter Pocket Watch

Regular price £125.00 £125.00 Sale

Our exclusive chrome-plated double hunter pocket watch is beautifully crafted to be a perfect gift for any occasion.  This pocket watch is one of our timepiece from Royal Observatory Greenwich, the home of Greenwich Mean Time.

The watch features a high quality seventeen jewel mechanical movement for exact and precise timekeeping so you will never be late. This timepiece has traditional Breguet style hands with a slim second hand on a white face with black Roman numerals. An outer dial showing the passing of the minutes completes the look.

With two glass faces, you can see the stunning classic skeleton design, which allows the watch mechanism to be seen.

The pocket watch has an engine turned case with a classic pattern – the shield is plain so suitable for engravings.

What is a double hunter pocket watch?

A double hunter pocket watch has both a protective front case and a back case which opens and allows you to view the intricate inner workings of your pocket watch.

To open the front case, press the button on top of the winder gently. Press the winder button further to open both the front and back cases.

To close a double hunter case, depress the winder and gently close the lids rather than clicking the case shut, as snapping the case closed can damage the latch.

What is a Skeleton dial?

A skeleton dial allows for the operation and mechanics of the watch to be viewed through the watch's face.

How to set the time of your pocket watch

Gently pull the watch crown fully out and turn it to move the watch hands to set the time. Then push the crown down into position.

Winding a mechanical pocket watch

To maintain the accurate running of your watch, we recommended that it be wound a little every day, turning the crown smoothly in a clockwise direction. Stop when resistance is felt as over-winding or forceful winding can damage the movement. Reset the time each day.
