The Scriblerus Club Pocket Watch is an 18-karat gold antique timepiece that was given to John Gay by writer Jonathan Swift. Named after the literary group, the Scriblerus Club, this piece has all the English charm in the world.

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.
