This Is A Mechanical Watch; there are no self winding references in the users/instruction manual.This time piece does an outstanding job doing what it was designed to do...keep accurate time. The Celtic Pocket Watch is a classic example of form and function. No day/date to distract from the watch face; no battery to fail and leave you in a learch. A brief note on use; yes you need to wind it and no you don't want to over wind it...what to do...I wind my watch about the same time each day; about 5am; and thats it until the following morning; and you don't have to crank it down tight-when you feel the spring tighting up that's it. Finding that wind spot varies from watch to watch so if you should wind the mechanism up to where it won't turn the watch is very forgiving...just don't crank it down real tight. Cheaper pocket watches are out there, and more and much more expensive pocket watches are out there; The Celtic Pocket Watch is competively priced and seems to be very well made. A great watch that can be well appreciated for what it is and equally well appreciated for what it is not.

I requested this pocket watch as a gift because the write-up in National Geographic said that that the watch was uniquely self-winding, using a small internal weight that responded to movement and kept the gears moving. The watch is beautiful and very good quality, but it is NOT uniquely self-winding. It is the same manual wind as my other pocket watch. Therefore I have returned it. I am disappointed because it is beautiful and I wanted to support NG, but the actual characteristics of the watch were misrepresented in the advertisement.

      Watch was consistently 10 to 30 minutes fast. Both front and back covers would open when you press the stem. A bit annoying to have the back cover flip open every time you want to check the time. Returned it.

                I bought three of these watches as Christmas gifts. So far two of them have quit working entirely. The back of one of the watches fell out repeatedly. The outside appearance is good, but they are junk inside. I'll never buy anything from NatGeo again. Comparable quality watches sell elsewhere for a third the price. If you want a truely good pocket watch then plan on spending a lot more. Don't buy this one, it's junk.

                    The crystal face (or better yet, plastic) popped out the second day of use. Was not matched correctly. Sent it back for replacement as it is truly beautiful only to be re-embursed the amount because they no longer carry the watch. Oh well! My only disappointment with NG.

This chrome-plated brass watch features a vintage style sun-and-moon dial that rotates as the day turns. A clear face lets you observe the self-winding mechanism inside.

                      In this twist on the classic pocket watch, a petite timepiece becomes a dramatic pendant. The steel-alloy watch features a Celtic knot etched into the pewter-finished case. Can also be clipped onto a purse using the included carabiner. Crafted by a Birmingham, England, company that has been making pewter since 1797.

                      Railroads have had strict standards for timepieces since the mid-1800s.

Made for display in this glass-domed case, as it would have been kept in a station master’s office. Not intended for precision timekeeping.

A canvas band and stainless steel bezel retain the age-old look of analog craftsmanship, with a classic face featuring National Geographic's distinctive logo. Displays both 12-hour and 24-hour military time, world time in 31 cities, day of the week, digital date, and seconds. Luminescent hour, minute, and second hands.

                      Historians believe that cloisonné was introduced to China by traders from Constantinople and has since evolved into a uniquely Chinese art form. Jewelers apply thin filaments of wire to the band to form floral outlines. This step of the cloisonné process has been compared to embroidery. The outlines are filled with powdered glass enamel and fired at high temperatures to fuse the material and bring out its bright colors. This hinged cuff is adjustable and will fit a range of wrist sizes comfortably. Stainless steel face with nickel-plated band.

                      Navajo artisans working in Tempe, Arizona, continue their tribe's long tradition of handcrafted silver work in this watch. Silversmithing is a skill traditionally passed down through generations, and many of today's Navajo silversmiths are continuing a craft first practiced by family members over the past three centuries. Although stones like turquoise, jasper, and lapis are often featured in Navajo jewelry designs, it's the silver work that represents the true spirit of Navajo craftsmanship.

                      The Lumi-nox Navy SEAL Original Series Watch came about when the Navy SEALs were looking for a more dependable watch for night missions. Lumi-nox's Swiss luminescent technology was the perfect solution. Unlike other watches that use a luminescent paint or a "push to light" system, Lumi-nox uses micro gas lights (borosilicate glass capsules) that are always lit, ensuring instant readability no matter the conditions.
