Time please genius.

I bought this silver nurse’s watch from an antique store for my friend Gina King’s birthday. She has always wanted one and when I spotted this bowed beauty I lunged arms spread out wide. It has a stamp on the back, but I can’t make it out. I love how the watch hangs upside down so that the person wearing it is the only one who can tell the time, very genius, like chocolate dipped in chocolate mmmm….genius….

    Aw man! I have been looking for a fob-watch (that is what they are called right?) for an age!

    This one is so lovely, i am super jealous. I hope she loves it as much as it deserves to be loved (a lot). What a great present.

    The stamp is a worn off one that says Silver. more updated silver pieces have the 925 stamp on it which also means silver. 🙂
