14K Gold Marcus & Co. Presentation Watch; to David Lawrance (founder of US & News Report) for "exceptionally valuable services" to the Associated Press in covering Mexican Revolution, July 5, 1911
This is a great collectible, both historical and horological....
This watch is in absolutely excellent mechanical condition. It has been regularly serviced and keeps perfect time. The watch is 14K gold from Marcus & Co. (a name equal to that of Tiffany) and measures approximately 2” in diameter. Watch case is also in very good condition with only minor surface feathering which can easily be buffed out. It has an engraved presentation which reads, "Presented to David Lawrence for exceptionally valuable services to the Associated Press in connection with the Mexican Revolution,
July 5, 1911.
This watch was presented to David Lawrence at an AP dinner in his honor. Mr. Lawrence was the first U.S. reporter to cover the revolutionary uprising in Mexico, and because of his close relationship with Woodrow Wilson, was the President’s unofficial advisor on the burgeoning conflict, (a search online of Mr. Lawrence’s bio makes reference to this presentation watch). David Lawrence - who was one of the most respected and lauded newspaper reporters in the history of U.S. journalism - went on to found the U.S. News, which later became the U.S. News and World Report, and served as its CEO for most of its existence in the 20th century.
