Men's Watch: The 1849 $20 Eagle Proof Men's Watch
Gold. The ultimate symbol of wealth, prestige and power. Could you ever have too much? That question is at the heart of The 1849 $20 Eagle Proof Men's Watch, a remarkable exclusive fine jewelry design. You see, in 1848, the enormous output of the California Gold Rush threatened the economy, so Congress authorized a new gold coin, the $20 Eagle. In 1849 ONLY ONE pattern coin was struck to test the dies; no others were ever verified to exist. Today that single 1849 $20 Eagle proof coin resides in the Smithsonian Institution, and is valued at $10,000,000-$20,000,000. What better inspiration for this incredible men's watch?
Even millionaire J.P. Morgan couldn't buy the one and only 1849 $20 Eagle proof; the U.S. Mint refused to sell it to him. But with this bold men's watch you can show off America's rarest and most expensive coin design every day! Meticulously crafted in stunning proof quality and plated in precious 24K gold, the watch face faithfully recaptures the reverse design of the 1849 $20 Eagle, a dramatic heraldic eagle based on the United States Seal. More 24K-gold plating enhances the watch's reeded bezel, echoing the historic coin's edge. A precision quartz movement provides the ultimate in accuracy and reliability, while the watch's stainless steel case is water resistant to 96 feet. An inscription on the back reads, "American Gold... The Makings of a Great Nation". A handsome band, resplendent with 24K-gold and silver plating, fastens with an adjustable clasp
