35. Watch System Cane-Ca. 1890-White metal cased watch knob in the customary, plain and rounded first generation of the Bertholet type on an ebony shaft with a horn ferrule. The cylinder watch is fitted with a custom and built in bezel winding system and a white enamel dial with a Roman scale and blue steel hands with an attached small setting knob. While the time is always accessible through a magnifying glass cover, the hinged framing has to be opened for the time setting. -This watch cane was patented in Switzerland in 1888 and is in best condition, recently serviced and perfectly working. It enjoys the so-far unrecorded and useful magnifying glass cover. -The watch mechanics are professionally engineered, well-built and protected by two screwed metal covers over one another, which, after the recommendation of the patent, should be layered by a rubber cushion to absorb the shocks. Attached the original drawing of the 1888 patent, attributed to Albert Bertholet and Louis Burry-Haldi, Bienne. -H. 2” x 2”, O.L. 36 ½”-$1,400-$1,800
