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. This design of the Lincoln Union Shield Penny is intended to be emblematic of President Lincoln’s preservation of the United States as a single and united country. The selection of the Union Shield design was officially announced by the US Mint on November 12, 2009 and first minted in 2010. 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.
