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
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, Wm. 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
