Pocket watch that chimes out watch bells

I like pocket watches. I was wondering if anyone has seen a pocket watch that chimes out watch bells ( 1 at 12:30, 2 at 1, 3 at 1:30 etc)

I know there are wall mount and mantel style clocks that do this, but I've googled and so far can't find a pocket watch that has this chime pattern.

Anyone seen this?

Re: Pocket watch that chimes out watch bells

Gord can find anything!

And I am often amazed at what he finds for us, and applaud him for posting it.

And following his suggestion, I found this article which explains what a Minute Repeating pocket watch does and why it may be very expensive to buy a good one.

Ding, ding, ding goes the sound of a repeater, and the sound of a cash register (as in expensive)!
