Watching Time



I am obsessed with being on time. Growing up, we lived far from the city so we always planned in advance to get places on time. Today, punctuality is a necessity in my life. To stay on time, I set my watch five minutes early and have multiple alarms on my phone. My newest time keepsake is my childhood pocket watch necklace. At home the other weekend, I was rummaging through my old jewelry box and found this rustic antique pocket watch that I turned into a necklace when I was a kid. The front is broken off, but I think this makes it even more beautiful. It has instantly become my favorite accessory, and I am wearing it with dresses, slacks and even cargo pants on the weekend.

Would you accessorize with a pocket watch?

  1. I remember LOVING pocket watches as a kid. We went on a trip to London, and I got one for cheap at a street stand, and I thought it was the best thing in the world . . . now, I don't wear a watch at all, and rely on my cell phone to keep me on time!

  2. I love all of these pocket watches! And I also keep my clocks fast and have four alarms go off every morning to ensure that I wake up and get where I need to be on time... I'm sure it drives my roommate insane, but she's kind enough not to complain!

  12. Marcie, I'm the exact same way. Maybe it is because I grew up living in the middle of nowhere and it took some planning to get into "town". Haha. But I'm obsessed with being punctual, often to the point where I arrive 30 minutes early (as you know, LA traffic is unpredictable) and always have a book in my car to read just in case. I love the idea of wearing a pocket watch as a necklace and yours is beautiful!!! What a great find. I love finding things I forgot about at my parents' house and bringing them back with me. Hope you had a great long weekend.

  15. Wow, Marcie! Your pocket watch is gorgeous! What a great keepsake, and it's practical. I love the idea of pocket watches and my mom gave my Dad one for their wedding and I just love it.

    I'm a lot like you...my alarm clock is 7 minutes early and I'm always irritated when people show up late. I think it's a lack of consideration for others!

  18. I want one of these so bad! My grandmother wears one and I love that about her. I looked around and found some really cool ones on ebay about a year ago. I had forgotten about wanting one, until now! Thanks! :-)

  20. I too must be on time, actually early because if I'm on time, I feel late! :) Fun watches that would help with that for sure!
