Animals were often used by the monks to depict certain events and represented saints and angels.

Product Code P294 Ireland/Kells The Kells manuscript of the 8th and 9th century is probably one of the most famous books of its time.

Product Code: P294 Kells 2 O.F. The design on this watch is taken from the Kells manuscript, possibly the world's  most famous manuscript. This design depicts two entwined birds, displayed in a beautiful Celtic knot. When the Latin missionary monks brought Christianity to Ireland in early 400 A.D., they also brought a new way of teaching people Bible stories and prayers. As many people could not read, the monks used pictures and symbols in their writings, as can be seen in the Kells manuscript. The birds on this watch look similar to cranes - which symbolize long life, health, happiness, wisdom and good luck.

Product Code: P294 Kells 3 O.F. When the Latin missionary monks brought Christianity to Ireland in early 400 A.D., they also brought a new way of teaching people Bible stories and prayers.

Product Code: P294 Kells 4 O.F. The animal depicted on this watch was drawn by the Latin missionary monks when they wrote the Kells manuscript, and similar to most of the animals illustrated, they were drawn from the imagination of the monks. It has been argued that this creature may be a lion, St. Mark's symbol. The opening line of this gospel is "Tunc crucifixerant Xpi cum eo duos latrones", ("Then they crucified Christ, and with him two robbers"). The 'T' in 'Tunc' is where this creature has been taken from

Product Code: P294 Kells 5 O.F. This open-face watch boasts a beautiful design of a creature from the Kells manuscript. As the monks could not know exactly what each creature looked like, a lot of the creatures they designed were imagined or taken from interpretation of other stories. This creature arguably looks like a lion - the symbol of St. Mark, one of the four Evangelists. Lions are traditionally a symbol of strength and power.

Product Code: P294 Kells 6 O.F. This open-face watch portrays a Celtic Dragon as taken from the Preliminaries of the Book of Kells.  The Monks who drew up and wrote the Kells Manuscript used many descriptive animals to ornate the many colourful pages.  In some incidences swans, intertwined birds, dragon like creatures and fish shapes were used to shape out capital letters
