Believe it or not, we are talking about Stonehenge. While we have no written records of Stonehenge or clear evidence of its intended use, its alignments show its purposes apparently included the determination of seasonal or celestial events, such as lunar eclipses, solstices and so on, making it a large, authoritative timepiece for the ancient peoples who utilized the site. Archaeologists believe it was built anywhere from 3000 BC to 2000 BC. Radiocarbon dating in 2008 suggested that the first stones were raised between 2400 and 2200 BC, while another theory suggests that stones may have been raised at the site as early as 3000 BC.

We do not have anything quite so old, but this women’s Girard-Perreguax Vintage 1945 watch with mechanical hand wind movement, a silver dial and 18k rose gold case and genuine leather strap has a timeless quality all on its own. Check out this and our entire catalog of watches at today!
