Pocket Watch Engraving
At this time, we charge just $12 per surface for text/numerical engraving on a pocket watch.
The outside of a front cover counts as one surface, and the outside of the back cover counts as another surface.
For example, to engrave one cover of one watch the charge is only $12.
Both covers engraved would be $24 ($12 first surface, $12 second surface).
We are often asked "How many letters can we have engraved?"
The answer is not so simple. It depends on the watch itself and the chosen font. We suggest as few characters as possible. We have found we can get about 50-60 characters (including spaces and punctations) with most fonts on full size (46 mm and above) pocket watches with plain covers. It is less on the smaller watches (42 mm for example), and of courses watches with engraving shields.
Here are the engraving monograms and fonts we offer:
A note about Monogram engraving:
It is customary for monograms to be in this order; First Initial, Last Initial, Middle Initial.
For example, Franklin Delano Roosevelt's initials are FDR, but his monogram would read "FRD".
Martin Luther King's monogram would read MKL.
