The Scriblerus Club Pocket Watch was Gifted by Jonathan Swift
The ancient watch even has an engraving from Swift himself, that reads “JG [John Gay] may ye not be a Beggar after the opera, your confidant, Jonathon Swift Scriblerus Club, 1728.”
Implications - Not only does this watch boast the ability to tell the time precisely, it has antique qualities that can't be found anywhere else. If I got my hands on something like this I would definitely keep it as safe as possible from fears of scratching it even by just carrying it around.Stats for Antique Literary Timepieces Trending: Older & Chilly
