Antique Pocket Watches


Welcome to Cogs and Pieces, dealers of fine antique pocket watches. We specialize in the sale of early English and Continental watches, mainly from the 18th century and early 19th century, and always try to offer a variety of interesting watches. These include antique pocket watches with verge, cylinder and duplex movements, and usually some vintage watches with early lever or rack lever movements. Complications such as repeaters, alarms and clockwatches are often featured.

We always have some watches with interesting cases, including gold and silver repousse, triple cases, pair cases, hunter cases, half hunters, enamel cases, and anything unusual or ornamental.

Our watches for sale include examples with interesting dials, such as gold and silver champleve, polychrome and calendars. We also list antique watch chains and chatelaines and our Workshop page includes watch cases, movements and other items of horological interest.
