How Watch Cases aro Made. It is ft fact not generally known that thi Jamet lion' Odd Watch Qua really con tain more pure gold than many "solid" gold cases Tho demand for theso watch cases has led to tho manufactnro of a very poor grada of solid gold watch cases low in quality, and deficient in quantity. Theao cases aro uuulo from A to 10 karats, and a 6 or 0 karat case i often Bold for 12 or 14 karats. It is not economy to buy a ' watch caso so poor in quality that it will soon loso its color, or ono so soft thntjt will loso its shapo and fall to shut tight, thus letting in dust and damaging tho works, or one so thin that a slight blow will break 'tho crystal, and perhaps the movement. It IS economy to bay a James IW Gold Watch Out, in which none of these things ever occur. This watch caso is not an txjxri mcnt it has been mado nearly thirty ytart. HixucTo, Vx., Oct H im.
