Timepiece is the name of the old fashioned watches normally worn attached to a chain in your waistcoat.About $3,000.
"Timepiece" is a popular word with people who sell very expensive watches. I've never heard it used anywhere else. Presumably, it could be applied to a clock as well, although "piece" suggest something relatively small.
Hmm, we also call them pocket watches. I think it's just that timepiece is an old-fashioned term so it evokes the image of those old-fashioned watches. (I wouldn't use the term unless I was refering to a pocket-watch, or being old-fashioned/posh for some reason)Perhaps that is that BE usage. In AE, such watches are known as pocket watches.
No, those items were called "watches". Timepiece means anything (clock, watch, etc.) that indicates the time.Timepiece is the name of the old fashioned watches normally worn attached to a chain in your waistcoat.
