What I can't figure out is the hands. It doesn't look like it ever was a working watch. I can understand there being no glass on the front. The hands look fixed. Until I know more, I can't really make a judgement on it's authenticity.

It's also pretty noticably covered in oxide or some other incrustation. That would account for the look of the hands.
The first thing I'd be looking for in that situation is the presence of an animal burrow or the like it could've fallen down, if only to eliminate it as a possibility.

How is this an out of place artifact?

There's no question at all that the site was contaminated.  We all know where the watch came from.  It's a simple matter to find out when it was made.

So, what is the mystery?  

It's waaay obvious that the watch was left at the site at some earlier time.  How could anyone question this and why is it on the board at all as a "mystery?"

Harte


Cause it's still not solved. I assume as well that it's an obvious contamination. But I thought it was at the very least, not something that is expected. Better than a spark plug in a geode, its a barbie sized watch ring in a tomb! I don't know, thought it was kinda cute.

Never heard of ananova, I just saw the link on Reddit when I was surfing at work, trying to look busy. I thought a few people on here could have a go at it. Sometimes the replies are better than the original article anyway, you know that.

Its interesting stuff, regardless. I think, anyway.

I know they say it is a real watch, but it just doesn't look like one.  Of course it's all encrusted, and I really am no expert, but is it not feasible that this might just be a carving? And if it's so encrusted, how do they know it says swiss? It's not like they would stamp that on a big bold letters.  Anyhow, it might be understandable that maybe there was an understanding of watches for the future from that time, and this person had a ring made for him that looked like a watch. That would at least make some sort of sense.

Anyhow,it just looks like a carving to me. Maybe later on they will clean it up and we can see more detailed pictures. I'll just wait and see what comes of this, but it sure is really interesting.

My Jedi keen senses this to be another attempt by SkyNet to take over the world but failing to do so because of faulty jumping calculation, which should be blamed on early stage development faulty programmings.

Haha, well you didn't fail. But I was insinuating more of the replies that usually contain the words "time traveller" or "reptilian" or "2012." I still giggle at some of them.

Here's another picture of the same ring watch:

linked-image



Just a fancy ring left by a rich woman while digging herself a way to the tomb, hoping to find something valuable.

Maybe during the 60's or 70's of the past century.

The Chinese archeologists assumed the tomb had been undisturbed for centuries; well, I think they were wrong.... heh.

I'm thinking this belonged to an SkyNet cyborg agent, it's more plausible, since the new trilogy is coming this summer of 09'.

Hi Abramelin sir, mr Enigmatic Annasawzi pretty much like to joke about things, and he is good at it too. I'm sure he was just having a little fun there. original.gif I'm sure he didn't intended to offend or anything..
