This Westclox Pocket Ben is in excellent condition and keeping time as it was designed, within a few minutes a day. The only issue is a small crack in the plastic crystal; so minor I thought still a viable pocket watch to offer for sale. The Pocket Ben was a Westclox higher end offering with the ornate Glow in the Dark Hands, still luminescent highlighted and with the silver circle around the center dial. This Westclox Pocket Watch measures 2 inches in diameter, the most popular of sizes.
