Early 1900s vintage porcelain watches

These are vintage porcelain dial and metal dial watches made during the early 1900s, a generation after the pocket watches. Those with the protective grill were made as "military watches" during the first world war circa 1914..

One advantage of these porcelain watches is the the dial will stay bright and beautiful even with the passage of time. The main disadvantage is the possibility of having hairline crack when used in very harsh manner.
