This is my second entry for the weekly challenge of treasure, the first entry can be seen at Treasure. The pocket watch below may be worth little in hard currency but as an heirloom is priceless. Opening up the back of the case we find an inscription, showing the clock to have been presented to James Campbell in 1876 (my paternal grandmother was a Campbell).
So this little treasure has now been in the family almost 140 years. Irreplaceable.
The watch itself is full of craftsmanship with intricate small working parts, made in London by Chaplin & Sons of 25 Aldersgate. I couldn’t resist a few more shots of this wonderful old time piece and hope you appreciate them too.
