The Best Most Authentic Steampunk Watches

Simply having the gears exposed doesn’t make a watch a steampunk watch! That is just a skeleton watch, which is not the same as a steampunk watch.

A steampunk watch has to not only have Victorian style, but a creative edge, and an old Victorian-era feel. With a lot of misinformation out there… what should a real steampunk website do?

We’ve selected these watches based on the following criteria:

  • Authentic steampunk design (not just any skeleton watch)
  • Creativity
  • Good reviews
  • Ease of purchase
  • Price

Some watches were too cool not to include but most fit the criteria above.
