Re: A few historical figures and their watches

That's really neat to know about Gandhi! The man lives up to his philosophy, what a character!

Here's Napoleon Bonaparte's watch... can't really find much info on the watch skimming through the net, though. There seems to be a hole at 3h, but don't know why... can't be a missing date complication (at that time period?; it's also not exactly at 3h...), right? Here's a very short excerpt by the media: Napoleon Bonaparte's pocket watch is on display at the newly renovated Napoleonic Museum in Havana, Cuba.

The hole is for winding the watch, from the front, with a key.
