The quest for Alice in Wonderland pocket watches continues. I already have one with Australia map and small one also one that is shaped as a key. This one looked something like an old watch that my father used to have, but it got lost during my childhood so I just thought I might as well like it.

Package: White plastic envelope. Wrapping material with elastic band. Plastic zipped transparent bag.
Notice: I want you to look at the way watch itself is packed – the chain is put into it and the lid is closed. That’s a huge flaw in packaging and whoever did this should get their phone put with their keys in one pocket. The glass did have protective plastic on it so it could not be so easily damaged by the chain and it rubbing to it while on the travel – but we all saw how packages are treated on the way so that’s really not the way to package it.
Item: The watch itself is quite nice and detailed, a lot similar to the one with Australia map – the chain and the handle on which the chain is attached are identical. Though the front has a bit of a flaw in making.
The flaw might be seen when compared with the other watch (behind) – looks like it got thick transparent paint blob stuck to it or something.
As well as the white small watch and the one with Australia map it was used as a decorative weight in the first box from the right.
And now it hangs on the wall with the tree mentioned.
