Tick-tack

You can’t leave home without one…

Whether you are trekking the globe or just keeping up with life at home, a watch is something we all need.

I LOVE watches and timepieces. Put me in front of a jeweler’s window and I will be more fascinated by the style and beauty of a watch than by any diamond ring. Because watches combine the beautiful with the practical.

I enjoyed the small display of pocket watches at the château. Here are a few views :

It must haven taken months or even years, to create without sophisticated machinery, a single pocket watch. I would have been curious to see if any of these watches still were in working condition.

Tomorrow, I will wrap up this mini tour of the château to visit the most brilliant place of them all. Stay tuned…

  1. Hey there Barbara!

    Gorgeous watches and timepieces!

    “It must haven taken months or even years, to create without sophisticated machinery, a single pocket watch.”

    Yes, and I bet they would outlive the watches of today. I adore pocket watches.

    A branch of the company I work for makes all their watches in Switzerland, STILL by hand. That’s why they’re so expensive. They actually gave me one after working for them for a year. It’s flawless.

    Thanks for sharing, my friend! Enjoyed this post!

    Happy Monday…..X

  2. I love watches, even if these days you can easily check the time on a cellphone or a MP3 players 😉 I have two or three and change depending on my mood. The mecanism inside has always fascinated me. Telling time… such a simple thing, yet so much technology inside a watch!

  3. Hello friends-
    Ronnie- Welcome back! I really loved these too. Yes; you may be able to wind them up and they may just be still working.
    No cheap plastic here!
    How wonderful that you received a high quality Swiss watch for your work. Wow! Thats what I want if we win the lottery!!

    Hugs to ya, dude x

    Zhu- Salut!
    I love everyhting about watches! Their style, their sound and yes, watch mechanisms. I am fascinated with small things.
    I would rather have a watch than look at a cell or MP3, but thats just me. That is how the younger generations keep track of time!
    Grosses bises 🙂
