The high premium on gold, and the
increased rate of duty on watches, have greatly enhanced the cost of those of
foreign manufacture, and it is now impossible to purchase a good watch, of
English or Swiss make, except at a very extravagant price. For the same cause,
the cheapest qualities of foreign make, the worthless ancres and Lepines which
flood the country, have nearly risen to the price at which the American Watch
Company furnish their well known " Wm. Ellery" watch—a watch of the most
substantial manufacture, and an accurate and durable time keeper. Our higher
priced watches are relatively still cheaper. We have advanced the prices of our
finer movements but about 25 per cent. since the war began, while foreign
watches of the same grade cost three times their ante-war prices. Wholesale
orders should be addressed to ROBBINS & APPLETON, Agents for the AMERICAN WATCH
Co., 182 Broadway, New York.
Of every description now ready in
