SALEM GAZETTE, Salem, Massachusetts, Oct. 26, 1821 An interesting page 2 report reads: "Phineas Davis, of York, Pennsylvania, has made an ingenious little watch...now exhibited in the Philadelphia Museum. Its circumference is a little less that a six penny bit, and only 3 16ths of an inch in depth; it...keeps good time, and goes for 30 hours...". Good condition, untrimmed.
