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.
