Description

A true native Australian icon, the Kookaburra or tree – kingfisher bird is known for its loud distinctive ‘laughing’ like sound. Although from the kingfisher family, Kookaburras are not commonly associated with being a water-bird. Kookaburras are often made-mention of in classic Australian bush rhymes and children’s story time songs -“Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree, Merry merry king of the bush is he, Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra…”

The unassuming pocket watch has a surprisingly rich history dating back to 15th century Italy, where it was better known as a ‘pocket clock’ and was the most popular choice for a personal time-piece up until World War 1. These days the wrist watch and the mobile phone have replaced these classic fashion show pieces. The Vintage World range of pocket watches each carries their own little slice of history. The decoration on their face matches perfectly with the era represented on the fob watch’s case lid, from the Art Deco styling of The Titanic to 1930’s Australian Penny and even an ANZAC day commemorative imprint with timeless Roman Numeral hours.

Each fully working, battery powered, clock mechanism is encased in a brass or copper alloy with an antique finish. Whether you like the modern steampunk style or simply have a respect for the train conductors and ship navigators of yesteryear, there is bound to be a pocket watch to suit. They also make extremely popular gift choices for either corporate or personal occasions.
