The penny has been a feature of Irish coinage for over 1000 years, from the time when the post Roman 'Hibernia' as Ireland was known, was invaded by the the Viking and Saxon hordes. The first pennies were hammered silver coins. Silver pennies were being minted during the reign of King John at mints in Waterford, Limerick, and Dublin and carried Irish designs.
This particular watch is in an Irish bronze finish, that complements the penny very well, it is a brushed type finish and has matching bronze strap closing as well. The strap itself is genuine leather and is in brown again to complement the bronze and the colour of the penny. The watch has a stainless steel back and the watch is water resistant.
