Guys- collecting an object will always be important to some people. This will not change with pocket watches. There will always be someone who wants to collect a watch either because of its beauty, gold value, rarity etc. A 25 Jewel 2 tone Benjamin Franklin has intrinsic beauty to it. It is unique. Very few were made and very few in great condition exist. I am just mentioning this one type of pocket watch. There are many more I could mention.

Jon,
How many 18S Benjamin Franklin's signed on the movement and dial were made?- maybe 10 or so. That's pretty unique. I am not just talking about a 26 Jewel movement but the whole picture. Also, not too many 16S signed Benjamin Franklin (on dial and movement), 25Jewel were made either.
Scott

Unique is ONE (BY DEFINITION)
Semi unique is TWO
EX Rare is 3-12

Try using and referring to the Sheldon scale, mentioned here many time on this MB.
