I don't know if this is the correct place to post this, but maybe a moderator could mmove it if I@m wrong.

I was determined to dust my camera off and get some use of it, so tonight I decided to photograph my pocket watch. Then I thought I'd share it with you good people.

That is a lovely piece, and I'd say you made the right choice of sections. Smiley

If you don't mind my asking, how old is it and where did you get it?

Though, you'll want to post it HERE too.

It's not old. It was a Christmas present from my good lady in 2008 ( before I'd heard of Steampunk ). As to where she bought it, I've no idea.

Thanks for the link, I'll post in there. I knew I'd seen somewhere for pocket watch posts  Roll Eyes

Sekonda was a Russian watch maker back in the day, but this one is a modern "homage".  Looks like a standard chinese skeleton movement.  Usually good value for the money, provided it isn't one of the "duds" that slip through what passes for QC.
