The New Patent '
Stem Winding Open Face Case
manufactueed by the .
American Watch Co
Tlii i case ia formed in oue solid piece without
joint or seam, opening in front only, thus avoid
ing the usual Cap, and securing greater strength
ind durability.
These Watches are all open face. - The bezel.
Into which an extra strong crystal ia fitted with
l.n especially prepared water-proof cement, is at
tached to the case by screwing it thereon, and
thus forms aa air-tight junction with the body of
the case, which is proof s gainst dust and mois
ture To railroad men, 'travelers, mi ers, lumber
men and others who are almost constantly ez-
jiosed and who have to make frequent reference
to the watch, these qualities are of the utmost
impot tance. .

own story.
Valdosta, Oiomia. July 2S, 1882.
"I sold one of your Patent Ihist Proof Cases
iiout ten months ago, and the other day it came
liasck to me with tbe request to make it wind
easier. On examination 1 round that tae stem
'fas rusty, and I inquired Into the cause of it .
'.the gentlemen Btated to me that he was starting
ome saw-logs that had lodged in the bend of the
liver, when his chain caught in a bush and threw
Ida watch into about twelve feet of water, and he
iras about two hoars finding it. When he got it
cut it was running and he thought all right. In
a bout three months he found that the stem was
hard tc turn and sent it to me. ,
' I can say that the watch Is all that the company
claims for it and recommend it to all railroad and
mill men. B. W. BENTLT."
"Custom, Iowa, April 29, 1S81 .
"I wish you would send me a spring for the
Wm. EUery Watch. By the way this El-
l:ry is a watch I sold in your Screw Bezel Case to
s farmer last falL The first of January he lost
tbe watch in the woods, and found it this week in
about one foot of water . It had lain three months
and over in snow and water, with but slight in
j nry to the watch only a hair-spring .
'The above were very severe tests, and demon
strate beyond a doubt, that for any reasonable
Isngth of time during which a watch might be un
der water it would receive no injury whatever.
We make these casa in both gold and silver.
