The Ukraine Skeleton

1908 Grade 290

In December 2021, I bought this 100+ year old watch.

Originally, it was a pocket watch created by the South Bend Watch Company. But at some point someone converted to a large-ish wrist watch.

South Bend is the largest city near me (and where I say I'm from if non-locals ask).

So I had to get it.

I found it on eBay in Ukraine and brought it back home — a few miles from where it was born.

A century old and it traveled half-way around the world and back in that time.

And I can't stop thinking about its history.
