Rolex watch dating silver
No, we cannot stir silver nitrate solution with a copper spoon because , copper is more reactive than silver.
Thus,it would displace silver from the silver nitrate solution forming copper nitrate.... "Born with a silver spoon in his mouth." I don't know if a silver foot in ones mouth is a good thing or a bad thing.
Markham's "Handbook to Foreign Hallmarks" says that an Assay Office was established in Geneva on 22 September 1815, and one in Neuchâtel in 1839.
The spoons have the names of different cities on them where there is a Bucherer store. About the rarest is the one marked "New York" and with a Statue of Liberty motif because Bucherer no longer has a New York City store.
There are also complete sets of the spoons available as a gift-boxed set from Bucherer.
Purely a marketing thing by Bucherer to get, mostly, foreign tourists to take home a Rolex with them.
The spoons are Rolex affiliated in that Rolex Geneva wholely endorses the marketing effort by Bucherer, but Rolex money is not involved I believe as it would show favortism towards one jeweler.
