Napoleon's Pocket Watch

by Le costumier De Bourges on Apr 25, 2021


The Gold Pocket watch by Frenchman Boussot de Villeneuve, which belonged to Napoleon Bonaparte until his death in Santa Elena, was "inherited" by his personal physician, who cared for him in his last days, Dr. Antommarchi, along with other personal belongings of the emperor, and moved to Cuba with his belongings where he established his residence.


Many years later, the heirs of Dr. Antommarchi, offered as a gift wedding gift to Commander Raul Castro Ruz, the Pocket watch that belonged to Napoleon Bonaparte. Later, the President of the Council of State of Cuba, donated this timepiece to the Napoleonic Museum in Havana, where it is currently on display.
