This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in a display case for wrist watches
and the like.
More particularly, the invention contemplates
a new and improved display case which is char
acterized by a member about which a wrist watch
and band may be mounted. It is proposed that
this member be provided with outwardly extend
ing flanges at its end portions extending out
with a modified form of this invention and shown
in an open condition.
Fig. 6 is a vertical sectional view taken on the
line 6_6 of Fig. 5.
The display case for wrist watches, in accord
ance with that form of the invention disclosed
in Figs. 1-4 inclusive, includes a member Il) about
which a Wrist watch and band may be mounted.
Said member I0 is provided with outwardly di
wards of said wrist watch and band. It is fur 10 rected fianges I I at its end portions for extending

For further comprehension of the invention,
and of the objects and advantages thereof, ref
erence will be had to the following description
and accompanying drawing, and to the appended
claims in which the various novel features of the
invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawing forming a mate
rial part of this disclosure:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a display case
for wrist watches constructed in accordance with
this invention, and shown in a closed position.
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the display case
shown in Fig. 1 in an open position.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged vertical sectional View
taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a transverse vertical sectional view
taken on the line 4--4 of Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 is a side elevational view of a display
case for wrist watches constructed in accordance
with end walls I4 which have openings I5. At
the center, the member I0 is provided with an
external groove I6 to facilitate mounting a wrist
40 watch and band on the member in a manner so
that it does not shift laterally.
Thev inner corners of the shell-like end covers
I3 are formed with longitudinally extending ribs
I1 which are in the nature of track elements.
45 These ribs or track elements engage comple
mentary recesses or grooves I8 formed in the
flanges I I and in the edge portions I2 thereof.
'I'hese interengaging tracks and grooves facilitate
the sliding of the end covers I3 upon the flanges
The
covers I3 are prevented from coming completely
off the member I0 by stop pins I9 or other pro
jections on the end covers abutting the flanges

tion has been disclosed which is very similar to
like end covers slidably mounted on said flanges
the prior form, distinguishing merely in the fact
and when moved together encasing said watch
and band and when moved apart exposing said
watch and band, said member and end covers be
that the member I0' about which the wrist watch
and band is intended to be mounted is of a much
smaller size than in the prior form of the inven
tion. However, the member ID’ is provided with
an encircling leaf spring 2|. This leaf spring 2|
has a bottom central section 22 which is attached
by fastening elements 23 to the bottom of the
member I0'. The arms of the leaf spring 2|
extend upwards and normally assume a slightly
open position as illustrated in Figs. 5 and 6.
When a wrist watch and band is displayed in this
way it is mounted around the leaf spring 2| which
may be pressed closed to any degree needed for
mounting the wrist watch and band within the
display case.
In other respects, this form of the invention
is identical to the previous form and like parts
are identified by like reference numerals.
While I have illustrated and described the pre
ferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be
understood that I do not limit myself to the
precise constructions herein disclosed and the
right is reserved to all changes and modifications
coming within the scope of the invention as de
fined in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I
claim as new, and desire to secure by United
States Letters Patent is:
1. A display case for wrist watches, comprising
a member about which a wrist watch and band
may be mounted and having outwardly extending
flanges at its end portions extending outwards of

moved together encasing said watch and band
and when moved apart exposing said watch and
band.
