This is an early watch from my collection
Wrist watches didn't become popular intil the first WW they were normally pocket watches
At the start of The first WW there was an order put out to manufacture wrist type watches as being more convenient than big pocket watches
This watch pictured is an Ingersoll wrist. The works are cheaply made and continued for many years known as the Dollar watch.made in the USA. This is in a ladies silver pocket watch case of silver date 1914 by Dennis on case makers. The movement cheap with a paper dial he figures would be painted with radioactive Uranium the hands also the Girls painting these would get terrible sores and deformation life threatening this because they put the brushes in thier mouths. This watch is probably one of the first batch there is a broad arrow scratched on the inside of the case..
The strap is original the hands have been replaced as the originals were rusted away note where the winding button is it still works
I wonder what story it could tell
