    "NO" I can buy at least 4 poor-mans watches with $950! ( that watch is 2big for you anyway! Trends dont always make good-sense)

    I agree with that statement! Some do modify the movements and not just the rotor!

    is there any maker out there (preferably those poor man -approved) who still makes pocket watch? I am curious- I know there are numerous vintage options on ebay but how about new ones?

    pocket watches are still useful for symbolic gifts or for people allergic to leather/cloth/metal straps and/or generally averse to wearing a wrist strap...
