My maternal grandmother, Florence Marie Koontz, had this watch and I found it at my parents’ home as part of the cleaning out. The engraving is FMK and the date on the fob (right photograph) is 1905. The clip fob on the right picture is the actual fob used by Grandma. All proper young ladies wore these in the early 1900s. More so, if they were in a work environment. Grandma graduated from Columbus High School with a diploma in Commercial Business – I think that means should could be a secretary, store clerk, or bookkeeper. If I remember correctly, Grandma did all three.
All this went into a drawer with the advent of the Ladies’ Wrist Watch. Sometimes, I am not so enchanted with the newer version.
