It wasn't a gold watch. It was a "stainless steel" watch that they gave to Barney on his 5th Anniversary in the Mayberry Police Department. I checked "GOLD" even though it's not right and it said correct. It is INCORRECT! *BLAH!* I don't want anymore of these questions then if they aren't even correct! :p

not only that - you are correct - WHO in the name of Otis could afford a gold watch?!?

It wasn't a sterling silver watch nor a gold watch. It was a stainless steel waterproof watch with the number 5 engraved on the back for his five years in the force.
