Nature's great masterpiece, an elephant - the only harmless great thing

Brenda KangComment

Elephants are a symbol of mental strength, luck, loyalty and wisdom and it seems that the jeweller who made this pocket watch was able to convey all of these qualities with his intricate workmanship. The pocket watch has been serviced recently and is still in working condition (we can't guarantee it will keep good time), but seeing that it is over a 100 years old, we think we could forgive a few seconds of tardiness?
