These watches are similar to the double hunter pocket watch, the main difference being that they have a glass case on the front protective case allowing you to tell the time without opening it.

In the Victorian era, pocket watches tended to be worn inside vest pockets, but nowadays they can be worn almost anywhere. Depending on the type of chain, some pocket watches clip to your outfit, so you can hang them from a belt, from a pocket on your shirt, or inside a vest like traditionally. Some pocket watches have normal chains where you can wear the pocket watch around your neck.
