Not mine but I found the advert and images years ago and forgot about them.
Date to 1899.

I found these adverts that are for watches made from metal recovered from the sunken "Maine" in 1898.

Possibly the first use of "DNA" in a watch!

Look at those really early reviews... in print not on social media.
Lots to be said for print.
