    Description

    Exceptional Mexican Silver Pocket Watch and Elaborate Fob. A 19th century Mexican silver peso coin is set into each cover of the watch. When the covers are opened the other sides of the peso coins, dated 1877 and 1883, are revealed. The dial is marked "E. Howard & Co. Boston". The watch winds, but does not tick. The bezel and glass cover around the dial is missing as is the minute hand. The fob is formed by four 19th century silver coins in ascending sizes. Each has been beautifully cut out, leaving only the eagle, "Republica Mexicana", and in two cases, dates - 1879 and 1883. Minor dents in the perimeter of the watch case, otherwise excellent condition. From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.
