Time Travel Mystery?
According to researchers, an untouched Chinese tomb was opened after 400-years. When the coffin was finally opened, and the cloth removed, something metallic hit the ground. The excavation team discovered a mud and rock encrusted ring watch and the hands stuck at 10:06 time, with "Swiss" carved in the back.
450 years ago in Switzerland, there was a ban on flashy jewelry, so the idea of a watch might make some sense, as a watch was considered practical. Still, there is no record anywhere of watches being popular in Europe until after 1780, which only deepens the mystery.
