close-up view

'Whiteway laidlaw & Co. Ltd' pocket watch.

I have two antique pocket watches that I want to share with others. These watches were bought from antique shop at Taiping, Perak. The ages of this watches is approximately100 years. You can see the written 'Pricthard & Co., London & Penang' in the center of this watch and the others watch is written ' Whiteway Laidlaw & Co. Ltd'. It is a name a British textile company that was found early 19th at beach street, Penang after Francis Light opened Penang. Only "Pricthard & Co, London & Penang" pocket watch is still functioning. It have great value of history.
