Lady's Pocket Watch

<< >>
Description
This tiny watch, with a movement made by the American Watch Company, Waltham, Mass., was the gift of Philip Cadmus to his fiancée Augusta Francis Stipp in 1906, shortly before their marriage.
Cadmus, a watchmaker, had his photo applied to the dial. The gold case, engraved with the monogram “A.F.S.”, is the hunter style, with a cover over the dial of the watch and the winding stem positioned at three on the dial. The movement is serial number 11647977. Preserved with the watch are its protective cloth sack and velvet-covered presentation box.
