Recently saw numerous references to this article that says a 100 year old “watch” was found in a tomb in China. Archaeologists found an old looking, ring, that is shaped like a watch, when digging in a tomb that was believed to have been sealed more than 400 years ago.
They believed they were the first to visit the Ming dynasty grave in Shangsi, in Southern China, since its occupant’s funeral but inside they uncovered a miniature watch in the shape of a ring marked ‘Swiss’ that is thought to be less than a century old.
As with many things in China the ‘facts’ surrounding the tomb and even this event is dubious. You can read more about this story at: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1096959/Mystery-century-old-Swiss-watch-discovered-ancient-tomb-sealed-400-years.html#ixzz2XnmsmbDB
