care and precision. If your order is time sensitive we recommend that you tell
us the date needed in the comments section during check out. If your order
requires expedite services to reach you on time a representative will contact
you with details.
Initials & Monograms: Regardless
of which you prefer, the characters you enter into the engraving area will be
engraved in the Exact Order you type them. Initials are engraved
in the standard order of first, middle, and last name. For example, John
F. Kennedy's initials would be JFK. Monograms are
engraved with the first letter of the recipient's last name placed in the center
and made larger than the other two letters. Accordingly, John F Kennedy's monogram
would be JKF.
All Initial or Monogram engraving is done using capital letters regardless of
whether you type in lower case letters or not.
- Straight Initials: First-Middle-Last name initials
are in capital letters and can be used either on the front cover, back cover
or inside cover. Note: Initials are placed vertically within the shield area
or crest of pocket watches and will have no periods.
- Monograms are First-Last-Middle name initials and are
available in either Straight, Circular or Interlocking styles.
Note: Perfect alignment cannot be guaranteed on small oval,
crests or shields typically found on pocket watch front covers.
on brand and whenever possible, we suggest engraving on the INSIDE cover of
pocket watches. Although this process is more difficult for our engravers, it is
the traditional location for pocket watches because it protects the engraving
from unnecessary scratches and wear. You can always expect
the engraving to be exactly the same quality regardless of the location you
type in ALL
letters using a script font. As you can see by the example, using all capital
letters in script creates an unusual result. CORRECT
