The Waltham (Premier Maximus) Watch with the Kew Class A Certificate in this casquet de luxe is a treasure which marks the zenith of splendid giving. It is the utmost possible in marvelous accuracy, honored by authority, and dressed in princely magnificence. The Premier Maximus in its 18-carat gold case is the finest and most wonderful watch made at Waltham. There can be no higher praise. When this watch is accompanied by the Kew Class A Certificate it means that the Kew Observatory of England (the most famous in all the world) has scientifically tested and tried this particular watch and guaranteed it as of maximum accuracy. Such a certificate means that the instrument is more than a fine watch ; the stars in their courses are scarcely more regular. The Sterling silver casquet de lhxe is a fitting gift case for such an instrument. At the top may be engraved the owner's name and the occasion of the gift, if desired. And it may be used as a hand some ornament or jewel case. The price complete is Four Hundred Dollars. It sometimes happens that an individual or a group desires to make a gift which shall express a vast regard or the deepest affection-and the world's best is not too good. Here is the response. We think you would be interested to know more of this wonderful watch and the unique Kew Ob servatory (it is an extraordinary place). We will gladly send you, without charge, a booklet about the watch and the place. Please mention "The Gift for a Prince."
