Kells Design on this Pocket Watch

The design on this watch is inspired by the Book of Kells, possibly the world's most famous manuscript. This design depicts two entwined birds, displayed in a beautiful Celtic knot. The birds on this watch look similar to cranes, which symbolize long life, health, happiness, wisdom and good luck.

This is a mechanical 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. The chain is 12" in length and has a pocket clip on the end designed to slip on to the cuff of a pocket. Pewter Cufflinks are available as optional set.

The perfect gift for the groomsman and best man on a wedding day or a delightful gift for that special man in your life to celebrate any occasion. 

History of the Book of Kells

Also known as the Book of Colum Cille (one of Ireland's patron saints), the Book of Kells is one of Ireland's greatest and oldest tourist attractions. Created around 800 AD, it contains an illuminated manuscript of the Gospels. It remains one of the greatest examples of insular art (from 'insula', the Latin for 'island'), which combines Christian and Celtic design. The calligraphy and stylized illustrations feature Biblical figures as well as mythical beasts from local folklore. It was a masterful undertaking at the time, containing 340 pages of quality calf vellum, while the inks were imported from far-off lands. However it was never fully finished - it may have been put into hiding instead due to the threat of Viking raids. Its name comes from the Abbey of Kells in County Meath, though it was originally produced on the island of Iona off the coast of Scotland. Today it resides at Trinity College, Dublin.

Fantastic

An absolutely terrific watch. It’s well crafted and looks great. Gifts of Ireland came through with another fantastic item for my collection. The only way it stops is if I forget to wind it!

Wonderful people and beautiful work

Gifts of Irland is the place to go for beautifully crafted pieces. I ordered the Belleek Himself & Herself Irish Mug Set for Christmas and it is gorgeous! And the painted shamrocks along with the Himself and Herself design is absolutely beautiful. The team at Gifts of Irland took pride and carefully packed and shipped promptly to us in the U.S. as promised. There really is no better shop out there providing a top-notch friendly and knowledgeable service given by anyone like Aidan, owner of Gifts of Ireland. You must visit Gifts of Irland. You will be overjoyed. Thank you once again Aidan.
