Hopper Brooklyn" in an 18 karat yellow gold, engraved and engine turned hunting case, cuvette engraved and enameled with a two headed eagle and the number 32, above a red guilloche enamel cross marked "In Hoc Signo Vinces", glazed inner cuvette, monogram on front cover, rear cover with date done in the style of the monogram (86), with personalized, single sunk white enamel dial with the owners name "Jacob M. Hopper" in place of numerals, plum colored steel Breguet style hands, serial #84487, 55mm, 163.4g TW, c1886

He was the embalmer of abolitionist John Brown, and an organizer of the New York State Undertakers Association. He also served as the treasurer and senior warden of the Third Masonic District, Brooklyn. The enameling on the cuvette confirms his Masonic connections. The watch is of very high quality, and unusual in that the only name found on it is that of Mr. Hopper. The watch movement is similar in design to watches manufactured by Tiffany & Co. during the late 19th century, and was probably ordered by Mr. Hopper through one of the prominent New York jewelers importing high quality Swiss work for sale in the United States. An exceptional watch with a very interesting history.
