These pocket watches are perfect for the budget steampunker. While the price is low, the design of these watches still stand out as classy and creative.

Steampunk Royalty

This watch is for the Steampunk royalty among us. The hour dial looks like a crown and middle shows the gears. There are some gaps which appear to allow you to see through the whole watch. The front of the pocket watch is ornate with a rustic gold color.

Opened

The watch has a magnifying cover, and because of the ornate edging of the cover, opening the watch transforms it to a more sleek feel. This makes it look elegant and classy, perfect for a high class airship event!

Steampunk Octopus

This pocket watch hits on one of the coolest and grungiest steampunk mascots, the Steampunk Octopus. The outside has the classic ornate detail we expect from steampunk and the watch looks rustic, like an actual old watch from the victorian era. It looks like it is brass with a slight patina.

Opened

Opened watch gives a nautical feel. Unlike the outside which is more ornate, the inside appears more basic and simple. However, the contrast between the simple inside and the ornate feel still around the edges makes the dial, “pop” and appear to be a well-restored vintage pocket watch.

Steampunk Green Lantern

This steampunk pocket watch contrasts black, silver and glowing green to give it a very mysterious feel. This is a mechanical pocket watch so the watch is hand wound. This is gives it a cool vintage feel but the time keeping is not as accurate as some other watches.

However, while the time keeping functionality is not perfect, this watch just looks too cool to leave out. And for the price it is a great low-cost accessory to your next steampunk event.

The inside of the watch is ornate and both the front and the back of the watch open up. The back reveals additional engraving and gears. It’s hard to deny how cool this watch is.
