What are your thoughts on pocket watches?

Does it ruin or complete the outfit?

Here's one to start things off: http://steampunkutopia.com/collections/vintage-pocket-watches/products/steampunk-retro-pendant-pocket-watch

I found this one on Facebook...

What say you?

It is a nice piece.  What might be better is if the back of the watch opened as well to reveal more of the movement.

Take a LOOK AT the CLIP and Chain it is 1/2 sized or 3/4 not full Size I got 12 of them a few years back via Hong Kong and they were only about $6 ea at the time also there are a lot of others that are cheap and have no reputation.
Spend you 40 quid on a second-hand miners or railway, can't see inside but most still keep good time.
