This is an old, large pocket watch that comes from my grandfathers family. I think that it and the YOLs are a perfect match. It is an American watch and I believe it was a gift to my grandfather’s father from relatives that emigrated to the United States Of America around the previous turn of the century. On the backside of the watch is an inlaid golden cow or bull and I’ll post a close up of it later. I like to hold it and imagine where it came from and what it has been through. It still works. I didn’t think it would, but when I tried to wind it up it started to tick . Amazing. Things are just…things…but some things carry a lot of personal value. It feels good to know that my grandfather’s father have held it in his hand, watching the time go by – maybe thinking of who he had gotten it from and where it came from. Timeless. Priceless.
