1760's. That's right, I said 1760's!!

pure silver and is 99.99 all Fine Silver and is practically never
seen in watches!

Why take a chance buying watches
from online auctions, 3rd parties, brokers or "middlemen" not knowing
for sure if the watch will be in proper running order when you get
it? Buy direct from a Vintage & Classic timepiece specialist and play
This is the type of
timepiece that Watch Collectors, Antique Dealers, History Buffs
and Civil War Re-enactors are clamoring to locate. This piece of history
should not last very long!
