130-year old watch from bottom of ocean returned

A silver pocket watch which lay at the bottom of the ocean for 130 years is being returned to the family of its owner.

After bringing it to the surface, he saw the words “Richard Prichard 1866 Abersoch North Wales” engraved on the casing. Mr Hughes told how he started to trace the family of ship captain Richard Prichard to hand over the heirloom.

Mr Hughes, 38, said: “I was amazed that the watch was in such good condition after laying at the bottom of the sea for generations.
