Mr. Christmas Musical Animated Train Pocket Watch
I am clueless as to why the sight of a pocket watch always brings to my mind a vivid picture of Hercule Poirot, the Belgian detective. I probably have to attribute it to a childhood heavily influenced by the adventures of the fastidious gentleman. And I also believe - for whatever unconnected reason - that people who use pocket watches are always punctual. I mean, if you have the patience to fish out a watch from your pocket to check the hour, time must be a pretty important aspect of your life, huh.
Anyway, time-conscious or not, the Mr. Christmas Musical Animated Train Pocket Watch could be well worth adding to your collection if unique time-pieces interest you. This pocket-watch has two miniature handpainted locomotives chugging along a circular track that is embedded within the dial. While the trains chug along the track, the watch also plays the the tune "I've Been Working on the Railroad", just to add to the spirit.
Now that’s one train which is guaranteed to always be "on time". Available from QVC for around $20.
