I have never shown these watches outside of wearing them. These are the watches (and a pocket watch) that I wear, I purchased them between 27-40 years ago. I have had a few others through the years that I gave to my children and a few that I have in a safer place than my home. 

The watch on the left has the most beautiful casing, the middle watch is rose gold, I ordered and waited 3 years for this one to be made it is the thinnest (at the time and may still be) watch in the world, it is a wafer-thin wind, it weighs nothing (1.2oz-32grams). The pocket watch is a minute repeater stopwatch, the top side push down is the stopwatch (next to the stem), the bottom (6 o'clock) push down chimes out the time, hour, quarter, minute.

The Tiffany & Co. complication is beautiful..... Babeando 
I think the Patek is still the thinnest watch.
Who made the pocket watch?
Thank you for showing them...... Cheers

I bought it from a friend (30-35 years ago) who raced horse's. He could clock them as well as hear the time without looking at the watch. This watch is a "Le Phare" 14K, the centrifugal governor is around 1900.  The maker was Barbezat Baillot a Swiss company that did not sign their watches or sometimes signed under the house name of "Le Phare" . The companies movements were unique and very rarely failed,  other important companies contracted movements and designed faces that featured their names as well as case's from them. My grandchildren love playing with this watch when I'm not looking.

Here is some info I have on this watchmaker

Barbezat-Baillot invented the brand Le Phare (= lighthouse) in 1888 and used it as his company name from 1905 on. Barbezat-Baillot was an extremely gifted watchmaker and inventor who registered a large number of patents - Swiss patent no. 334 was one of his most important inventions and included the use of centrifugal force for the repeater mechanism.

I have really not thought about this for years, thank for asking

Here's my EPOS with Day, Date, Month, Moon Phase, 24 hr. display and standard chronograph functions.
The thing that sets it apart, the movement has been hand engraved with a custom rotor to commemorate
it's creation MMX (2010) Pictures do not do it justice, you have to move it around in the light to really see
the beauty of this movement.

It stopped functioning while I was riding, but was running when I stopped. I reset the watch and has been fine
for the past 3 hours. Lesson learned, evidently some watches can't handle the vibration of motorcycles.. Confused

Update. Riding the bike really messed up the watch. Service is about $500.00  Confused 
Never happened b/4, but my watch back then was my Rolex GMT, it's bullet proof.
To be safe, I've stopped wearing a watch when riding. Cheers
