Great story! Anyone who loves history and watches should get a kick out of it.
I read the article, and blew up the image myself. Nobody mentioned that "Jeff Davis" is scratched across the bridge. I wonder what THAT means.

And what a relaxing time (before the Civil war, of course), so laidback that an important polititian as A. Lincoln could function without a watch!!
Something to aspire to!
Of course, we would still need watches to collect!)
I wonder what Abe Lincoln would have thought when he got his watch serviced and so many people added graffiti inside it! And many props to the 16th President of the USA for being so conscientious in having his watch serviced regularly.
PS: Its standard practice in those days (and even now I believe) for watchmakers to etch their initials and the date on the inside back of the watch casing as a permanent record of services on the watch.
