Just a matter of time

By HobbitDave
An antique timekeeper - 1778 verge pocket watch, still ticking well today, made by Richard Francis of Attleborough, a village near Norwich nearly 250 years ago. A watchmakers apprenticeship was 7 years in those days! This was made during George 111s reign.
Happy Sun Day to all, its sunny here, hope it is with you 🦋
