Indeed. It looks like the website is messing up photos again.

Being marked Incabloc, your watch will most likely date from sometime after the 50s. Without photos (of the movement especially) we can't really say anything else.

Seems to be so. I saw a gold-coloured pocket watch here last night - but now its been replaced by the wrist watch. Sorry Suzanne - please try again with the pics.

I can see the watch now. It looks rather nice but, as stated before, the "Incabloc" (the main kind of shock proofing, developed in 1935) as well as the central second hand and the 17 jewels (watches mainly had 15 until the mid-1950s) show that it is a modern pocket watch probably using a small movement originally intended for a wrist watch.
