Watch case

In Attire
Relationship: Im/migrant

This watch case was a 1907 wedding gift to my great-grandmother Fortunée. After her husband died, by herself she held the whole family together. Her death in 1945 fragmented the family, and my grandfather and a few of his relatives decided to leave Egypt and move to Italy. After World War II, he would move to America and become a watchmaker.

Year: 1907
