The Ingersoll "Dewey" Dollar Watch

Not mine but I found the advert and images years ago and forgot about them.
Date to 1899.

I found these adverts that are for watches made from metal recovered from the sunken "Maine" in 1898.

Possibly the first use of "DNA" in a watch!

"You may fire when you are ready, Gridley."
Manila Bay, 1898. Commodore Dewey Cmdr. USN Pacific Squadron on board flagship USS Olympia.
"The killer awoke before dawn. He put his boots on. He took a face from the ancient gallery - and he walked on down the hall."
