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.
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 groomsmen and best man on a wedding day or a delightful gift for that special man in your life to celebrate any occassion.
