This silver pocket watch, owned by Pope Benedict XV, was probably given as a presentation gift to someone. It has the name of the pope in Latin and his coat of arms.
It is in very good condition and a wonderful addition to the Collection. Artifacts belonging to this pope are very rare because he is known to have had very few things associated with him given as souvenirs or even as blessings signed by him.
Artifacts belonging to Benedict XV are considered to be among the rarest among 20th century popes.
