Default No bottles but a watch

Best find over my last few outings is this watch. There were no watch parts on the inside so I donít think it was being used anymore as a watch. Cleaned up awesome and I shined the inside.

Only markings appear to be a crown with the number 81 in it. Also says warranted 20 years under.

Yes found in a 1940s dump site. I think it was the only thing we found worth taking
