Leather Watch Case, Father's Day Gift
In honor of Father’s Day, let’s look at one of history’s most famous men – who also happened to be a father. Winston Churchill was prime minister of the United Kingdom during World War II. He was an impressive orator and wartime leader, but he was also a devoted family man.
Not being a fan of the newly invented wristwatches, he owned a gold pocket watch by the French designer Breguet, which he nicknamed “The Turnip.”  He used it his whole life, and wore it constantly. His wife Clementine gifted him a few charms to attach to his pocket watch’s heavy gold chain, including a gold heart set with a garnet
This Churchill family treasure is now in the possession of his great-grandson. Heirloom-quality watches and jewelry deserve heirloom-quality jewelry boxes and valets. ChasingTreasure has an array of handsome valet boxes, watch cases, and more, to keep your precious valuables safe, secure, and exquisitely stored.
