Believe this is an Ingersoll pocket watch and the symbols look like Masonic ? Any thoughts? serial #26366197 Thanks!
Truly said. "What a proper Mason would make of it..." would be interesting as the way this one is depicted with the leaves is slightly different and I cannot find another like this on google or ebay. Apparently an Ingersoll interpretation.If you search an online auction site such as ebay for "pocket watch masonic" then you will see a ton of watches, new and old, with random symbols scattered around the dial. The "gold thing with right-angle thing" device is one of the commonest.
So yes, this watch could happily be described as "masonic", although what a proper Mason would make of it, would be an interesting one to explore.
Symbolizing immortality. Good find.
Well that is good 'timing'...hehehehThere will be an article in the Bulletin regarding Masonic links to clocks and clockmaking in America coming up in May or June I think. It revolves around the display on these clocks at the ESR in 2019 and the extensive video done by George Goolsby about the display.
Looks like there are three '07' and one '01 patent datesThis appears to be plate 39 in Townsend's book, The Watch that made the Dollar Famous. The illustration shows a watch with patent dates, the latest of which appears to be Nov. 12, 1912. The serial number shown in the illustration is 37438100, which by Townsend's table puts the watch movement ca. 1913-14. Bjornestad's SN would, by Townsend's table, fall in 1910 or so. Of course, the patent dates on his watch would have to support that, as Pat implied above.
DMT, formally known as N,N-dimethyltryptamine, is quite interesting to test, given it is a drug that occurs naturally in many plants and animals (also human beings) and has historically been prepared by various cultures for ritual purposes.Translation please? DMT?
