  • Speaking of pocket watches...

    An interesting little item came up on eBay...associated with a now-defunct military academy:

    The case also has a monogram, so I'll assume it was presented to a graduate (May being a typical month for graduation).

    As mentioned above, the academy is defunct:
    Gulf Coast Military Academy Was founded in 1912 by Col. James Chappel Hardy in Gulfport, Mississippi and was a West Point Honors Military Academy. The Senior Branch of the Academy was closed in 1953. and the grounds were purchased by the federal government.

    Apparently the site is a retirement home for Armed Forces personnel today.

    The watch is a nice little Hamilton fixer-upper in a factory case:
