The Ticka watch camera was made in England by Houghtons, between c.1905 and 1914. The design is similar to the American Expo Watch Camera from the Expo Camera Company - both designed by Swedish engineer Magnus Neill.

The Ticka uses a special 17.5mm roll film - loaded in cassettes - taking 25 16 x 22mm images. The case is 55mm in diameter and 21mm deep. An accessory viewfinder was available which slid into a groove on the "stem".

A later version of the Ticka has a dummy watch face, with the hands indicating the angle of view. Also a sterling silver version was made, it was properly hallmarked.

The Ticka was copied by the Japanese company Ueda as the Moment watch camera.
