The USS Constitution is a wooden-hulled, three-masted heavy frigate of the United States Navy, named by President George Washington after the Constitution of the United States of America. The boat is the world's oldest commissioned naval vessel afloat. Launched in 1797, Constitution was one of six original frigates authorized for construction by the Naval Act of 1794 and the third constructed. Joshua Humphreys designed the frigates to be the young Navy's capital ships, and so Constitution and her sisters were larger and more heavily armed and built than standard frigates of the period.
The Constitution was built in the North End of Boston, Massachusetts, at Edmund Hartt's shipyard. The ship was made famous in the War of 1812 following several engagements with the Royal Navy earning Constitution the nickname ‘Old Ironsides’. In May 2015, the Constitution entered drydock for a three-year maintenance operation.
This commemorative and unique pocket-watch celebrates Constitution's two-hundred years of service.
