Here's a great-looking, still working, Swiss made pocket watch from the 1960s. It's an Arnex 17 Jewels Incabloc with what appears to be an original link chain.

The goldtone case has the look of old Victorian watches with hunters in a deer field embossed on one side and a classic design scrolled on the other.

The watch face measures 1 1/2 inches across. The case measures 1 7/8 inches across. Add another 3/4 inch for the winder and bail.
The chain is 22 inches long.

The Arnex brand originated in the Swiss Jura, the heart of the Swiss watch-making industry, from a community called Arnex-sur-Orbe. The original company was acquired by Lucien Piccard (The LP Watch Group). The brand is associated with good quality, affordable timepieces.

Incabloc is a shock-protection system introduced in 1934. The system was widely used from the late 1940s through the 1950s. This watch is most likely circa 1960s.

The 17 jewels makes this watch a "fully-jeweled" timepiece with an appropriate number of jewels for a reliable mechanical watch. The jewels are there to provide hard surfaces for friction points inside the watch mechanism to improve reliability.

The watch winds and runs for about 6 to 7 hours. We see this as more of a decorative watch than something to keep your important appointments by. It's in excellent vintage condition. Appears clean inside and out and looks like something your rich distant uncle left you in his will.
