REMARKABLE WATCH. What is said to be the most remarkable piece of mechanism ever put together by man is a watch made in Berlin, which measures less than a quarter of an inch in diameter and weighs under two grains. The case is of gold, the works and hands are of the finest tempered steel, and the whole construction is of the most approved plan; while it is declared to keep time excellently. The minute hand is less than an eighth of an inch long, the hour hand less than a twelfth of an inch, and the second hand not one-six- teeJth of an inch long. The cost of this watch was in inverse proportion to its size, for the owner is said to have paid close won £400 for it. e-- -:8
