This is an interesting sepia image depicting a Mexican miner, with his pick, canteen and miner's headlamp. When a waistcoat was not worn, the watch chain was attached to the belt or the buckle with a chain passing to a pocket in the trousers as can be seen here. It is interesting that a gentleman doing such physical work would still consider it essential to wear his watch and chain! This style of wearing a watch is occasionally seen today. Photographer, M. Rodriguez Perez, Piedras Negras, Mexico. The condition is very good for age with good tones but slight speckling. Width 2.5 ins (6.3cm) x height 4 ins (10.1cm). This item can be seen in my book, "How the Watch was Worn - A Fashion for 500 Years". Registered Air Mail Post to the USA would be $13.00. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
