Pocket watch

In Attire

This pocket watch was given to my grandfather Santos Garcia by his father Jacinto Garcia, for good luck, wealth and purity. This pocket watch has a very big meaning to my family and it is to be passed down to all men in my family that is mature enough and someone who is wealthy someone who has luck and purity. On my grandfather's deathbed he gave it to my brother and told him to take good care of it and give it to his eldest son. Every Christmas we talk about the stories of how he came to America.

Year: 1910
