Anyone interested in either American history or Abraham Lincoln will treasure this piece of workmanship. The movement employs vintage styled manual winding with 20 jewels and the case is 14k gold fused which aims to match the colour of the original exactly which can be found at Smithsonian’s Museum of American History. Now over 200 years since the iconic Americans birth the fastination of Lincoln still lives on.

The George Chatterton Watch Company has set a strict limited edition and Stauer is the only place that you can find this piece of history meaning that this will over time become a collectors item for sure.
