American Watches

For Soldiers

AT REDUCED PRICES.

American Watches for Americans!

THE AMERICAN WATCH COMPANY give notice that they have lately issued a new style of Watch, expressly designed for Soldiers and others who desire a good watch at a moderate price. These watches are intended to displace the worthless, cheap watches of British and Swiss manufacture with which the country is flooded, and which were never expected to keep time when they were made, being refuse manufactures sent to this country because unsalable at home, and used here only for jockeying and swindling purposes.

We offer to sell our Watch, which is of THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL MANUFACTURE, AN ACCURATE AND DURABLE TIME-KEEPER, and in Sterling Silver Cases, Hunting pattern, at nearly as low a price as is asked for the fancy-named Ancres and Lepines of foreign make, already referred to. We have named the new series of Watches, W.M. ELLERY, Boston, Mass., which name will be found on the plate of every watch of this manufacture, and is one of our trade-marks. Sold by all respectable watch dealers in the loyal States. Wholesale orders should be addressed to ROBBINS & APPLETON, Agents of the American Watch Company, 182 BROADWAY, N. Y.

One set of hooks sent to any address free on receipt of One Dollar. A discount of 20 per cent. to parties ordering one dozen sets and upward.

Address   FERGUSON & BALCH, Importers of Watches, 208 Broadway, N. Y.
