The size of this type of watch also reduced and the weight of the watch also reduced a bit. Some of the variety of this type of watch comes with a big chain with it which you can worn around your neck or you can also attach it with your shirt button hole or bag etc. the two most popular style in which you get the pocket watches is the hunter style and the open face style. The open face pocket watch is a type of watch which does not come with a covering on the crystal face. The other model i.e. the hunter model comes with a metal case which you can close to protect the dial of the watch from any damage to the dial of the watch. The cover of this type of pocket watches also protect the watch from any scratch on the watch and it also protect the watch from dust and dirt too.
