Pocket Watch with Shamrock Design

This is a Mullingar Pewter Stainless Mechanical Pocket Watch featuring an Open Face with an embossed Shamrock Design.

This is a mechanical gent's watch designed to capture that early Victorian look as portrayed by the gentlemen of that time. The watch itself is a manual wind-up and the workings can be seen from both the front face and back. The chain is 12" in length and has a pocket clip on the end designed to slip on to the cuff of a pocket.

History of the Shamrock

According to legend, St Patrick used the shamrock to teach the Celts about Christianity in the 5th century, with the three leaves representing the Holy Trinity. There were already several triple-deities in Irish mythology, which may have helped locals become accustomed to the concept of the Trinity. 

 

The name derives from seamróg meaning 'young clover'. Since the 18th century it has been used as an official symbol of Irish heritage, becoming incorporated into numerous local flags, coats of arms, and sports emblems. It is now a yearly St Patrick's Day tradition for the Irish taoiseach (prime minister) to present the President of the United States with a crystal bowl of shamrocks in the White House, as a celebration of Ireland's deep connection to the United States due to the Irish diaspora.
