First created in the 16th century for wearing around the neck, what came to be known as pocket watches took off in the 17th century after watchmakers began creating models small enough to fit in a pocket. While the popularity of wristwatches in the 20th century hampered sales and usage, fine pocket watch makers persisted, and today antique, rare, and vintage pocket watches for men and women are popular at online auction sales for their fine craftsmanship and appearance. In addition to cased, open-face, and 17-jewel American-, Swiss-, and Italian-made pocket watches, you're likely to find gold (10K, 14K, and 18K), yellow gold, and rose gold offerings, as well as sterling silver and porcelain models. Popular brands include the Illinois Watch Co., Hamilton, Ingraham, Elgin, Eldale, Waltham, E. Howard & Co., Patek Philippe, and others.
