After looking at the picture, you're assuming that it's a watch dial because it looks like one to modern eyes where clocks are ubiquitous. It may well be nothing but an artist design. That's why we let scientists who are familiar with these types of objects work on them rather than arm chair "hypothesisers" from UM.

I was wondering where I left that at I used to see these at the flea market when I was a child. And this one looks just like the ones they sold back in the 70's Someone else has been in there.

Alex Zelaya: Watches evolved in the 1600s from spring powered clocks, which first appeared in the 1400s. The Ming Dynasty, or Empire of the Great Ming, was the ruling dynasty of China from 1368 to 1644. View Full Article | Source: Third Eye Concept Actually the first known pocket watch was made in Germany or France in the 1590's but did not become well known and popular until the 1600's due to the expense. It was then the Swiss stepped in and made the watches of quality that were less expensive. I would like to know the exact size of that watch, a photo would be great right about now. What puz...

This isn't exactly a unique or new discovery. All kinds of "modern day" items have been found in places they shouldn't be. Have you ever heard of the spark plugs that they find in freshly mined coal?

Actually, it would be the contrary. The past was once something... It happned. The future... well. You don't have it.... The past is nothing but memory (which isnt always correct), the present can be misleading and the future is nothing but imagination. sorry had to put that in, i just think it's always going to be hard to accept something that happened in the past when we were not there to witness it. What happens if all the theories and evidence that scientists have today is all incorrect?We are all guessing at possibilities here.

They found a spark plug in a lump of conglomerate, which is what happens when you leave steel in a a sandy environment for a few decades. Not even speaking as a amatuer geologist here, jsut someone who worked at a metal facility that had been active on the premises for about 30 years, saw plenty of nails and such like that. As for the ring watch, this is the only other article I've found about it....
