I purchased this to incorporate into a Steampunk-style Velma costume. While this certainly isn't your grandpa's pocket watch, it's good quality fashion jewelry. The map is crisp, the hands are a delicate filigree, and the zodiac calender gives it a mystical feel. The latch works well, and it is very easy to set. After more than 6 months the watch is still holding time properly. The watch casing is 1.75 in diameter.
