A tiny Swiss watch in a 400-year-old tomb

Two journalists from China were making a documentary together with archeologists and they found a tiny Swiss watch in a 400-year-old tomb.

A former curator of the Guangxi Autonomous Region Museum, Jiang Yanyu said:

“When we tried to remove the soil wrapped around the coffin, a piece of rock suddenly dropped off and hit the ground with a metallic sound. We picked up the object, and found it was a ring. After removing the covering soil and examining it further, we were shocked to see it was a watch.”

The clock stopped at 10:06am and had the word “Swiss” engraved on the back.

They are now waiting for experts from Beijing to help them solve this mystery.
