In the seventeenth century, wrist or arm watches were predominantly worn by ladies. Gentlemen usually wore a pocket watch. From the eighteeneighties men started to wear wristwatches after British officers started to wear their watches on a strap during the colonial wars. There are two types of pocket watch: with a lid (hunter case) and without a lid (open face). Royal London bring an extensive collection of over 45 quartz and mechanical pocket watches designed in stainless steel, gold and rose gold with hunter and half-hunter cases. All Royal London pocketwatches are delivered with a matching chain.
