Description Technical Specs
 

This distinctive pocket watch has been beautifully crafted with the look of yesteryear. The front of the engraved square case houses the obverse of a genuine U.S. coin. The Indian Head penny was minted from 1859 to 1909 and is composed of copper. It was designed by James B. Longacre and is now well over 100 years old. Legend has it, his daughter Sarah was the inspiration modeling a headdress given to the White House from a chief. No one knows if Sarah was the model as James B. Longacre once stated Venus, a Greek statue, was his inspiration for the design. The obverse was first designed to resemble laurel and then was changed to oak. The Indian Head penny was only minted in Philadelphia (which bears no mint mark) until production began at the San Francisco Mint in 1908. Open the watch, and the coin’s beautiful reverse design is visible inside the front cover. The face of the watch adds to its look of antiquity, but its quality quartz movement is strictly state-of-the-art. Includes a one-year warranty along with a Certificate of Authenticity.
