DESIGN FOR A WATCH-CASE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 16,127, dated June 16, 1885.
Application filed June 3, 1884. Term of patent 14 years.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE W. LADD, of the city and county of Providence, and State of Rhode Island, have produced a new and original Design for \Vatch-Oases, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification.
The design consists in a central raised surface for one or both covers of the watclrcase, said surface having at its point of union with the margin of the cover two swells or curvatures, whereby a highly ornamental effect is imparted to the cover or covers.
In the drawings, Figure l is a side view of the watch-case. Fig. 2 is a similar view, partly in section, the cover being in open condition.
In the said drawings,A designates the case, and B designates the cover, which may be either the front or back cover of the case.
This cover has at the point of union between the raised portion 1) and the margin two curves or swells, Z) If, rising successively from the margin line, whereby a very handsome and pleasing effect is imparted to the eye. The central portion, 7), may be ornamented by engine-turning or engraving. The curved rim I) is in this instance left plain, so as to present a polished surface, thereby imparting a rich and solid appearance to the case; but the curved rim I) may be ornamented by engraving, and the central portion left plain.
Having thus described my invention,I claim as new and desire to secureby Letters Patent- The design for a watch-case, consisting of the centrallyraised portion 1) and the curves or swells b I), as shown at the point of union of the raised portion and the margin.
