HENRY HIRSH, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

PICTURE-HOLDING CAP FOR WATCH-CASES.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 276,403, dated April `24:, 1883.

Application filed Novembcr, 1882.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HENRY Hrnsrr, of the city, county, and State ot'New York, have invented a new and Improved Picture-Holding Gap for Watch Cases, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The object of my invention is to provide a new and improved device for holding pictures, flowers, locks of hair, and other souvenirs on the cap which covers the works in watchcases.

The invention consists in the combination, with a watch-case cap, of a watch-crystal held on the same, under which crystal the picture, lock ot" hair, or other memento or souvenir is placed. rlhe crystal is preferably held on the cap by a bezel in the usual manner.,

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a watch provided with my improved picture holding cap, the back of the watch-case being shown opened. Fig. 2 is a crosssectional elevation ofthe saine. Fig. 3 is an enlarged detail crosssectional elevation of the cap.

The cap A ot' a watch-case, which cap covers the works of the watch, is provided with an annular shoulder, a, on its outer or upper surface, against which shoulder a a bezel, B, holding a watcherystal, O, oi" any kind,titsin the same manner as a bezel is held on the center I), for the crystal that covers the dial. A picture, E, a lock of hair, flowers, or any other souvenir, meinento or keepsake is placed on the ripper surface of the cap A, and the crystal O is held over it by the bezel B. The picture E, Sac., can be seen Whenever the back F is opened, which ordinarily covers the cap in the usual manner. The bezel B and the crystal O can be held on the cap in any other suitable manner. ,'lhe crystal O and the bezel B can easily be removed to place the picture, souvenir, &c., on the cap. The crystal O can be made curved, of a thin plate ci' glass, or it can consist of a thick plate of glass with 'oeveled edges, or may have any other desired suitable shape. The bottom surt'acc ci' the (Model.)

crystal O can be made flat or concaved, as may be desired and according to the nature of the article that is to be held on the cap.

I am aware that pictures have heretotore been held on extra rings or bezels hinged in vwatch-cases, and I am also aware thatin stemwinding watches the back of the cap has been cut out in the center and one or more pictures inserted in the recess cut out, the pictures being secured in place by a bezel, and I therefore lay no claim to such invention. In the construction last disclaimed, and also it' the extra ring first disclaimed, carrying the picture were employed as a cap covering the works, the picture cannot be inserted in the recess cut out ot' the back of the cap withoutopening the cap and exposing the works, which are thus apt to be injured; nor can flowers or a lock ot hair, or similar mementoes, be inserted in said recess without filling up the recess with some backing material to prevent the works being exposed. In this invention by taking olithe bezel the crystal can be removed, the picture or other memento placed on the back of the cap, the crystal placed over it, and secured in place by the bezel without exposing the works 0f the watch.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patentl. The combination, with an ordinary closed watch-case cap covering and protecting the works, of a crystal secured to the back of the cap by a bezel, substantially as described, whereby a space with a closed bottom is left between the back of the cap and the crystal for the insertion of pictures. iiowers, hair, or other mementoes, without exposing the works ot' the watch, as set forth.

2. The combination, with a watch-case cap, A, having an annular shoulder, ct, of the bezel B, and the crystal O, extending over the back of the cap and held thereon bythe bezel, substantially as described, and for the purpose set forth.
