When the Waterbury Is vell wound

The Baldwin Library

Children, did you ever see a WATERBURY
watch? In some respects it is like you. Its
face-is always bright and shining. Its hands are
never idle, except when run down, which is like
going to sleep, and when the watch is wound up
its hands are as busyas ever, just like yours after
you get up in the morning. It is a good plan to
wind it often, just as it is a good plan to wash
your hands often. It also teaches a useful
lesson,-by always being regular and trustworthy.
It is never late, like some children are at school.
It helps children to be punctual and prompt. It
makes boys look manly. Wouldn't you like one?
Tell your father it only costs two dollars and a
half; and tell him to be sure and go to a
Retail dealer in watches for it, as it is sold
nowhere else.

Copyright 1887, S. C. PATTERSON, 177 Broadway, N. Y.

Moving o'er the watch's face,
Useful little hands are we,
Just as children's ought to be.

Everybody has heard of the WATERBURY, but
many people who never handled one entertain
very mistaken views regarding it. When they
see one a smile curls the lip-" Humph! a
WATERBURY, who'd carry a WATERBURY ?" and
yet, ten to one, with its plain but handsome
nickel case, and simple but perfect construction,
the WATERBURY is a better watch-a more ac-
curate timekeeper-than the showy gold plated
one they carry. He who wears the WATERBURY
has a practical acquaintance with it. He knows
that it combines the perfection of time keeping
with the lowest possible price, and he is satisfied.
He can understand how it is that over 1,500
WATERBURY watches are made daily. Those
who wish to buy one can do so from any Retail
watch dealer It is sold by no one else.
