Does anyone EDC a pocket watch?

 

I've been looking for groomsmen gifts and came across this pocket watch on Etsy.  It looks awesome but I just don't know how often they would be used...

I have one similar to that one. I only really use it when I get dressed up.

Looks great! I have a pocket watch somewhere...I never wear it because I don't want it banging around with everything else I carry in my pockets.

I would love something like that as a groomsmens gift.  Its not something I would ever carry every day but for special occasions definitely.  If you got in engraved for each groomsmen as well that would make it even more personal.  I know a lot of guys that gave out the personalized A2 flash hider style shot glasses that were a hit.

I love pocket watches but I had to make the hard decision to give up carrying them when my EDC started to grow and my PW started getting scratched up thanks to the other crap in my pockets (keys, small flashlight, etc). It was the only thing that lifted out. That is a slick PW though, as said previously if it were me it would be a special occasion watch.

I own a bariloche pw but I don't carry it. It was a gift from my wife for our first Christmas. It only comes out for special occasions.

I think the common theme of these replies are that pocket watches are COOL but not practical anymore.

I chose a few other items for the groomsmen gifts but still think pocket watches are BA! Thanks to all that replied!

Agreed. I have two. Both groomsman gifts. I choose which one to carry on special occasions when I'm dressed up. So they each get used once every other year or so. But I don't dress up often.

Both mine are engraved with the dates of the weddings and some kinda cool message he put on.
