Mechanical Pocket Watch with Trinity Knot Design by Mullingar Pewter.
This is a mechanical gents watch designed to capture that early Victorian look as portrayed by the gents of that time. The watch itself is a manual wind-up and the workings can be seen from both the front face and back of the watch. The chain is 12" in length and has a pocket clip on the end designed to slip on to the cuff of a pocket.
'Triquerta’ meaning three-cornered, is the latin word given to the Trinity knot. Found in the famous Kells manuscripts, it is believed that one of the many symbols of the Trinity knot is religious – representing the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is also believed that the Trinity knot is a symbol of three forces of nature; water, fire and earth. In Celtic culture, the number 3 is hugely symbolic. Many things come in threes in Celtic beliefs, such as the three domains (earth, sky, sea) and the three stages of life (youth, adulthood, old age).
The perfect gift for the groomsmen and best man on a wedding day or a delightful gift for that special man in your life to celebrate any occasion.
