IN the South Kensington Museum at London is a small watch about a hundred years old, representing an apple, the golden case ornamented with grains of pearl. Another old Nuremburg watch has the form of an acorn, and is provided with a dainty pistol, which perhaps serves as an alarm. In London is an eagle-shaped watch on which, when the body of the bird is opened, a richly enameled face is seen. They are sometimes found in the form of ducks or skulls. The Bishop of Ely had a watch in the head of his cane, and a prince of Saxony had one in his riding saddle. A watch made for Catharine I. of Russia is a repeater and a musical watch. Within are the Holy Sepulchre and the Roman guard. 

By touching a spring, the stones move away from the door, the guards kneel down, angels appear, and the holy women step into the tomb and sing the Easter song that is heard in the Russian churches. King George III. of England had a watch not larger than a five-cent piece, which had 120 different parts, the whole not weighing quite as much as a ten-cent piece.
