Albert Einstein's Silver Pocket Watch National Watch Co
$8500.00

This is a real interesting item, not your typical silver pocket watch. It came from an auction, a court ordered sale, of all the contents of a very wealthy couple in Vancouver BC. The family was Russian Jewish origins....It is a silver pocket watch made by National Watch company, inside it says Newport Coin Silver, it opens to a gilt interior with Elgin JW engraved GM Wheeler, Number 168897. It has the key to wind. On the back in script “ ALBERT EINSTEIN”. I believe this watch was made around 1871, it measures 2 ¼ inches across. I have tried to find a photo or information about Albert Einstein holding or owning this watch, it is quite possible it could have been presented to him as a gift in the USA. It is definitely a possibility.
