Men's Wind-Up Watch
Great to see real old school watches are still around!
I had to think of a cool and unique gift for a young man turning eighteen and I thought, "why not an old school wind up watch?!" He isn't the most conventional young guy around so it might just be right up his alley. It turned out to be a great hit with him and I took it as quite a compliment when he called it cool. I was happy I could send it out directly to him and with no info on its costs on the packing sheet and a personalized note from me enclosed with it. Thanks Ortons you scored high points with me on this one.

Plain and simple
I wanted a watch that had no batteries and no calendar to fiddle with and that I could read without my reading glasses. This watch fit the bill on all accounts.

Perfect Watch for Dad
My dad has wanted a wind-up watch for years. This watch is perfect. The face is large and clear/clean enough for him to read. He hasn't worn a watch in years so it's nice to see him wearing this everyday. His only adjustment was making an additional hole to tighten the band.

Wind Up Watch
Have been looking for a watch that doesn't need a battery - finally! Love this watch. Face is easy to read - only thing missing is a second hand.

The Wind-Up Wonder
My first watch was a wind-up one. I always liked the idea of a wind-up watch. You know, not being tied down to a battery which may expire unexpectedly. When I was a boy and had my first watch, it was my responsibility to make sure it be wound up every day. And knowing that my little exertion of winding up the watch helped keep the watch running involved me in the process. I still like that idea.
This particular wind-up watch that I bought from the Vermont Country Store has brought that sense of wonder back. The first time I wound it up, I wanted to see exactly how long it would take before it stopped. Well, here's the answer: On the first full wind-up, the watch ran for 39 hours and 29 minutes. I was really impressed. And it really keeps excellent time. My family and co-workers initially didn't understand why I enjoy it so much. But now they're curious about it. I'm very happy with my new wind-up watch.
