Two Christmas's ago my father bought 2 watches for himself and my mom that have a hidden pistol in one (that appears real and with 2 bullets) and one with a vial (supposedly filled with poison) and 2 needles. Being an engineer, I looked them both over quite carefully and not only do the watches work, but the gun has a real working action, the bullets are crimped, correctly made, etc, and the poison vial looks carefully sealed.
In short everything looks real and functional, has ANYONE ever heard of such watches? My dad has looked everywhere online and has given up.
Also the story is that the pistol is in a large railroad watch because it was for a man, while the poison was in a regularly sized pocket watch to be carried by a female assassin, as a man poisoning someone was "undignified."
I don't have any pics at the moment, but I could get some fairly easily if anyone has any idea at all what these watches really are.
