This is a quaint vintage tape measure of silvered metal enhanced with a glass- covered watch dial. The tape is retractable and when gently pulled the hands of the watch move around. The tape is in inches and centimeters and retracts nicely but the tape itself is quite frayed, but still intact. The remainder of the piece is in good condition for age and this little item would make a talking point amongst a collection of unusual tape measures. Measures 1.25 ins (3.2cm) square. Weight 20 grams. This item appears in my book, “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 216.
