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 symbolise long life, health, happiness, wisdom and good luck.
This is a mechanical gents watch designed to capture that early Victorian look as portrayed by the gents of that time. The watch itself is a manual wind-up and the workings can be seen from both the front face and back of the watch. The chain is 12" in length and has a pocket clip on the end designed to slip on to the cuff of a pocket.
The perfect gift for the groomsman and best man on a wedding day or a delightful gift for that special man in your life to celebrate any occassion.
