About Us

The Watch Pocket Jewelers is located in the Woodmoor Shopping Center in Silver Spring, MD, conveniently situated near the intersection of University Blvd. and Colesville Rd. in the area known as “Four Corners.” You can find us in the “best worst place” in the shopping center, down the breezeway across from a barbershop.

The Watch Pocket Jewelers is a family owned and operated business founded in 1970 by John Stohlman and handed down to his son, Matthew, the current owner.  Joining the business in 2006, is founder John Stohlman’s grandson, Eugene Stohlman.  Working with his Uncle, Eugene is excited about carrying on this family tradition.  Eugene graduated from Gem City College in Quincy, Illinois with degrees in Horology (watchmaking) and Clock Repair. The three generations of Stohlmans have been delighted to take care of the community’s watch, clock and jewelry needs for so many years.

Known for beautiful products, honest service, and a welcoming atmosphere, The Watch Pocket Jewelers has earned the reputation as the area’s most trusted jeweler.

In July 2014, The Watch Pocket Jewelers was featured on the front page of the Gazette Business newspaper.
