Pocket watch in silver pair case
The watch is reputed to have belonged to Vice-Admiral Sir Thomas Masterman Hardy (1769-1839) and been given to him by Emma, Lady Hamilton (circa 1765-1815). However, the hallmark for 1826-1827, means that this association is false. Richard Story was probably the first owner of the watch. The engraving on the inner case is more worn than that on the outer, suggesting (as was sometimes practiced) that the owner wore the watch in its inner case only, to reduce weight in the pocket.
