Lawrence of Arabia-a kind of obscure question

Couldn’t find on Google.

When Faisal sits down with the reporter who is asking after Lawrence’ whereabouts, Faisal appears to take something out of his pocket, and lay it on the table between them. Any idea what it is–I couldn’t make it out.

Thanks in advance

It’s been decades since I’ve seen the movie, but just from your description I’d guess a cigarette case.

It’s a pocket watch.

Checking on Netflix, it’s definitely a pocket watch.

Thanks, I couldn’t pick it up and certainly some kind of recording device would be out of the question :slight_smile:

That would be cool! A tiny wax cylinder recorder. “Please speak distinctly into the horn, Your Eminence.”
