Pendant watches have grown in popularity in the last year, mainly because they are a very unique piece of jewelry and also serve a purpose. Elegant pendant watches can easily be styled with every style of outfit and paired up with additional charms or necklaces.
Because pendant watches generally come on long sturdy chains, it is important to choose necklaces of some lengths that will complement the pendant watch and not hamper its subtle swing. Of course, it is possible to combine two necklaces into one and add additional charms you may have to the chain of the pendant watch, but most times the watch itself is enough.
Here are some of the best online websites to find pendant watches, and the watch brands that generally make them.
Lady Locket Pendant Watch
Some of the best and most unique forms of jewelry can be found in museum and art gallery stores. Pieces are usually part of a limited edition collection, and many times there are several exclusive pieces that make up the collection. In this case, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has adapted beautiful pendant watches from original Richard Clarke and Sons pendants that are part of the British Museum in London. Each pendant hangs from a 32 inch gold necklace, which is sturdy enough to carry other charms– though the need for further adornment is not necessary.
Cherry Blossom Watch Locket
Fred Flare has a huge variety of quirky and affordable jewelry and fashions for women, including a simple, but fun cherry blossom watch locket. Interestingly, the main colors of this cherry blossom piece are not white and red, but green, white and brown which is rarely seen. The locket hangs from a large silver chain and has a large white face that is easy to read. The best part about shopping Fred Flare, is that everything is extremely affordable, including the Cherry Blossom Watch Locket which is only $28. Also available from Fred Flare are the Holly Go Lightly and Lady bird styles.
The Fairfax Pendant
Nixon watches has a nice selection of classy pendant watches that range widely in style. The Fairfax has a unique rectangular open cut shape, with a corresponding textured dog tag. The pendant takes on more of a necklace style with the additional adornment and shows how easily it is to pair up pendant watches and style them. Like traditional Nixon watches, the Fairfax is made with Japanese movement and is water resistant.
Zad Clockwork Copper Necklace
Lulu’s is a revolving door of affordable jewelry and women’s fashions– so if you see something you like, don’t delay your purchase. The Zad pendant watch is in the shape of a square, but hung on its side, like a diamond.

This necklace is an excellent example of a pendant watch that can be paired with other necklaces or added to because of its delicate design.
