To all whom z't mag concern:

Be it known that I, Lno ALBANEsE, a citil zen of Italy, and'residing at Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York,

have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Watches, of which the following is a specification, such as will enable those skilled in the art to which it appertains to make anduse the same.

This invention relates to watches and particularly to watch case constructions, and the object of the invention is to provide an elongated watch'casef, which is so constructed as to receive and support in one end portion of the case a watch movement, and to receive and support lin the other end portion thereof a powder pufl", and also to serve as a container for powder; a further object being to provide the watch case with hinge door members for controlling the insertion and removal of the watch movement 'and powder puff, one of said members being provided with a transparent panel through which the watch dial is visible, and the other of said members being provided on its inner face with a mirror; a still further object being to provideacase construction in which the powder'pufl' i's removable from the back of the watch case,, and the receptacle for the powder is sealed from the watch movement receiving receptacle, and the watch movement placedtherein; and with these and other objects in view, the invention consists in a watch construction of the class and for 'the purpose specified and which is constructed as hereinaften described and claimed.

The inventioni is fully disclosed in the following specification, of which the accompanying drawing forms a part in which the separate parts of my improvement are desl nated by suitable reference characters in each of the view s, and in which Fig. 1 is a front view of my improved watch construction;

Fig. 2 is a' longitudinal sectional view through the watch case, and on an enlarged scale. V v

Fig. 3 is a back` view ofthe lwatchA as shown in Fig. 1.

'Fig/1 -is a watch case, withone ofthe cover thereof in an open position and, 'f
