Catalogue Note

Inscribed: Albert Lincoln Smith, In grateful appreciation of your unselfish help and advice for many years, Harry W Child, Christmas, 1920

The present watch is monogrammed and inscribed for Albert Lincoln Smith, the President of the Montana Trust and Savings Bank through the 1920s. The bank and its Officers were involved with war relief efforts during World War I. In addition to raising funds, the bank supported the Red Cross and the Montana Loyalty League. 

The watch was gifted to the original owner by Harry W. Child, a prominent Montanan entrepreneur and founder of the Yellowstone Park Company who offered services to visitors to the Yellowstone National Park from 1892- 1980. In his earlier years, Mr. Child had helped to establish the San Francisco Stock Exchange in 1882.

The watch is preserved in beautiful overall condition, with a vibrant varicolored enamel monogram to the hinged case back. The dial remains intact and dressed with Breguet numerals and Louis XV hands.
