    I have loved pocket watches ever since I saw my dads when I was in 1st grade. I really like the ones that wind up and you can see the internal mechanism working. The ones with front and back doors that allow you to see the internal workings to me are the most interesting. I have had many in my life but most are the under $50 variety. I have a budget of about $200 and am looking for one that the door will not bend while it is in your pocket. If anyone has a suggestion or knows of a good brand does does not cost an arm and a leg would very much be appreciated.

    I carry a Colibri Skeleton watch that my wife got me ~15 yrs. ago. 17 jewel, swiss movement.

    It has been through the washer about 3 times, still runs and keeps time. I had to have the hands replaced. I don't know how old it is. The only way that I know of to get one like this is on the 'bay, usually in the neighborhood of $45-$100.
