    Hi, seeing as DaveyG is showing off some of his collection; I thought that I would do the same. Here is what I call my: Irish Cowshed made Verge Pocket Watch. It comes with a complete set of Blarney Hallmarks (very Rare) and a Snake with an Arrow for a tongue; who said there are no Snakes in Ireland? It runs and keeps reasonable time for a Verge and is one of my favorite Pocket Watches. I wonder if it is made by a Relative of the famous John Walker? Regards Ray

    I know nothing much about pocket watches, but this would be my favorite too! I would just enjoy looking at it and the engraving, particularly the snake! Thanks for showing it to us.

    From what little knowledge I have of pocket watches, I would agree with you. But others will surely know more definitely.

    Ray, my Dublin watches have cases, (one by Thomas Carpenter). I'd say outside
    of chains, hairsprings, everything else was home turf.
